Leaf printing

Go for a walk and collect some leaves. Get lots of different ones - big and little, and different shapes. When you get back home, you will need poster paints and some plain paper to print on (wallpaper lining paper is ideal - cheap and plenty of it!). Choose a leaf and paint one side of it. While it is still wet, press the painted side down onto the paper to make a print. You can make patterns with your prints, or a picture (maybe a tree), or make a print of each leaf you found to remind you of your walk.

Building with Lego

Build some things with Lego. Make a big house and a little house. Make a long wall and a short wall. What else can you make that is little or long?


When you go out in the car or on the bus, look out for long lorries. Who can see the most? When you go for a walk in the park, look for little dogs, or maybe ladybirds.

Word game

Think of names beginning with L, e.g. Lucy, Laura, etc.

The Game of Ladybirds

The Very Lazy Ladybird
by Isobel Finn and Jack Tickle


The little girl with a curl

There was a little girl who had a little curl
Right in the middle of her forehead;
When she was good, she was very, very good,
And when she was bad she was horrid.
