Tracing Leaves

Exploring the world around them is an important part of children's early learning. Take a walk through your neighbourhood. Observe the trees and leaves. How many different kinds can you notice?

Preschool Toolkit - Tracing leaves matching activity

This matching identifies leaves by their shapes and by their names. You can add this activity to a nature theme at home or at school, or simply have fun learning about leaves with your family.

Gather leaves on your nature walk.
Trace leaves onto poster board.
Match each leaf to its outline.

Laminate the leaves so they can be used over and over without drying out.


I found a placemat with leaves printed on it and was able to use it in a matching activity.
Leaves gathered on a nature walk were matched to the ones on the placemat.
We were excited to see quite a few matching leaves. The biggest challenge was naming them all!

This large maple leaf deserved to be laminated and measured on its own!

This open-ended activity provides exciting learning opportunities for kids - exploring natural surroundings, sorting and tracing leaves.

What varieties of trees and leaves do you have in your area?
