If you’d like to add an educational twist to it, here are some suggestions:
Talk about the different Fall leaf colors.
Count the leaves as you add them.
Skip count by color (For example, add one red and one orange then over and over again.)

Preschool Fall Leaf Activity
For Preschoolers, you can practice counting as you add the Fall leaves to the wreath.
Talk about how the seasons change when the Fall season comes around.
You can also talk about how the leaves are brown, red and orange from being the color green.
Kindergarteners can also learn through equations.
Set out a deck of index cards with equations such as 2+2 and 3+3.
Add the leaves onto the wreath as the answer.
And, there you go!
