This Autumn Banner offers a fun activity that allows for creative expression and sensory exploration. Created as a follow-up activity to the book We’re Going on a Leaf Hunt by Steve Metzger, students will first gather leaves to use for the banner. To further implement, simply lay out a long sheet of butcher paper, plates with various paints that represent fall colors, brushes and leaves gathered from your leaf hunt. Allow students, in small groups, to brush leaves with paint and them print them onto the paper. Don’t forget to provide smocks for each child to wear to protect their clothes! Display banner on a door, in a hallway or near your favorite window.
