Preschool At Home: ABC and 123 Leaves

The Mini-Saurus and I were trolling
Michaels Craft store
this week and saw these foam leaves
and silk fall leaves.

I made the girls a foam leaf alphabet
for their learning shelves.
I even made a second set to give to my
favorite kindergarten teacher!

I added leaves to the yellow tote bags
with fusible webbing ironed onto some fall leaf fabric
from my stash.

Here are the two alphabets
on my kitchen table.

Then I numbered some leaves
1 - 10

I know I saw this great idea on another blog
and now I can't remember who/where....
(thank. you. mommy brain)
so, if it was you, send me a note/comment
so I can give you credit!!

Note: It was at My Montessori Journey!

They make a pattern too....
Maple Leaf, Oak Leaf, Maple Leaf, etc.

(and yes...I made two sets, one for me
and one for my favorite kindergarten teacher!)

I just picked up a bag of glittery leaves at Walmart last night for a dollar. I love the number idea, if it works on my glitter leaves it will be in one of Madison's play trays by the end of the day! Thank you for the idea!

This is a great post.. Very informative... I can see that you put a lot of hard work on your every post that's why I think I'd come here more often. Keep it up! By the way, you can also drop by my blogs. They're about Vegetable Gardening and Composting. I'm sure you'd find my blogs helpful too.

Oh I so wish I'd have been your favorite kindergarten teacher! I had to make my own alphabet leaf set once upon a time. Love the cute bag to go with it.
