These fun science activities are a great project during the spring when you can collect a variety of leaves to make colorful placemats for picnics and other occasions. You will be making placemats using fresh leaves off of trees. Springtime is a great time to make these leaf placemats because new leaves are soft and easy to use. You can paint the leaves and then use for stencils.
Our Weather activity book contains fun and easy to do weather activities for kids of all ages. Our book contains 43 pages of activities that include Upside Down Air Pressure, Creating Frost, and a Tabletop Weathervane. Myrna Martin
Plants in the spring grow leaves to produce their own food. They take water from the ground and carbon dioxide from the air to make the food. Plants then use sunlight and chlorophyll to make the food needed by the plants. The chlorophyll gives the leaves their green color. In the fall plants stop making food. After the chlorophyll is gone from the leaves they turn yellow, orange and brown.
