For this activity you will need a shallow box/pan, small marbles or balls, fall paint colors, and a leaf cutout for each child. Begin by placing the leaf cutout in the box then roll the marbles in paint and place them in the box. Next, have children gently wiggle the box to move the marbles over the cutout. If you have vigorous shakers, you can add a lid to the box. Talk about all the colors they see on leaves in the fall. Once the leaves are dry, use the leaves to decorate a bulletin board, glue the leaves on to paper and make fall placemats, or just let the children toss them up in the air and watch them fall to the ground like leaves falling from a tree.
