Updated: Dec 29, 2021

Children will weave a piece of yarn in and out of a leaf.

Skill Level: Easy

Suitable For: 3 - 4 years old

Estimated Time: > 30 mins

Environment: Indoors


  • Stickers

  • Yarn/string of different colours

  • One-hole puncher

  • Leaves of various sizes and colours

  • Marker

Step 1:

Take your child out on a nature walk around the neighbourhood or the park. Collect fallen leaves of various sizes and colours in a plastic bag. At home, place these leaves on the table. Arrange them according to their sizes OR shades of colours (from light to dark).

Step 2:

Have your child punch holes around the edges of the larger leaves (about the size of an adult’s palm).

Step 3:

Invite your child to weave a piece of yarn through the holes, along the edges of the leaves. You may tape the end of the yarn for easy threading. Encourage creativity by allowing him/her to weave along or across the face of the leaves.

Step 4:

Decorate the leaves with stickers or markers.
