Fall Leaf Bath

Fall Leaf Bath | Mama Papa Bubba

We’re in full-on fall mode here in the Okanagan and the kids and I have been collecting beautifully coloured leaves since they’ve started falling.  Some have become part of the little nature table below our autumn bucket list, some have become leaf creatures, and tonight, a pile of them become part of a fall leaf bath.

I actually set this little fall leaf bath up for Sam last fall and it was such a hit that I had to do it again.

It couldn’t be easier, which I love.  Just give your leaves a good rinse and place them on the surface of a tub of water.

This time around I also put some up on the wall – a trick Sam discovered last year.  All you have to do is get either the leaf or the wall wet, and so long as the leaf is fairly flat, it’ll magically stick to the wall.

What he discovered this time around?  That he could stick a leaf onto a leaf!

While he was playing, we also briefly talked about the different types of leaves in his fall leaf bath…  Well, the ones I knew at least. {#momneedstodosometree/leafresearch}

And of course there were leaf hats, leaves stuck on legs and bellies, and several rounds of leaf peek-a-boo.

After Sam was done, it was Miss G’s turn for a bath, and this is what I walked into when she was done…  She had separated the leaves by colour and created a game for me by having one misplaced leaf on each wall that needed finding. : )  Gosh, how I love my girl…
