Cut out leaf and acorn shapes, using fall colors such as orange,
brown, yellow, and red. Using a paper plate with the middle cut out
so that it looks like a doughnut, help children glue the leaves
around the plate. As the children are working on this project say,
“God made the leaves and the trees. God made everything. Thank you,
God, for the leaves and beautiful colors.”
Then give each child two or three paper acorns. Tie a bow for
the bottom of the wreath and attach the acorns to the top of the
wreath. On the back of the wreath, write your Bible verse for the
day. While doing this activity, you could also sing “Autumn Leaves”
to the tune of “Mary Had a Little Lamb.”
