Leaves, Leaves Falling Down

Amidst the autumn's vibrant artistry, we weave,

In leafy carpets, laughter and joy conceived,

Nature's playground, where childhood dreams retrieve.

What do you do:

Gather a Pile: Rake fallen leaves into a sizable pile, ensuring there are no sharp objects or debris hidden within.

Leap with Joy: Take a running start, jump into the pile, and relish the feeling of leaves cascading around you.

What do you need:

  1. Open space
  2. Leaves
  3. Optional: Rake- if you do not have a rake see what you can use to problem solve.

Safety Considerations:

Check the Pile: Before jumping in, inspect the leaf pile for any objects or hazards that might be hidden beneath, such as sticks or rocks.

Supervise Children: Ensure that children are supervised while playing in the leaves to prevent accidents or rough play.


Physical: Playing in leaves provides physical exercise, helping to improve balance, coordination, and muscle strength. Jumping and moving through the leaves also increases cardiovascular activity.

Spiritual: Immersing oneself in the natural world, especially during the colorful and tranquil autumn season, can promote a sense of spiritual connection and mindfulness, fostering a deeper appreciation for nature.

Intellectual: Playing in leaves can stimulate curiosity and creativity, encouraging exploration and imaginative play. Children can learn about the changing seasons, tree identification, and the life cycle of leaves.

Emotional: Playing in leaves can uplift mood and reduce stress by triggering feelings of nostalgia, happiness, and wonder. It provides an opportunity for social bonding and laughter, promoting emotional well-being.
