Leaf Counting to 20: Digital Kindergarten Fall Math Activities

Fall is my favorite season. I love the slight chilly weather, sweet apple cider, and seeing the amazingly beautiful shades the leaves change into. My kiddos always have the BEST time gathering all the leaves in the back yard, putting them into piles and diving into them feet first.

Kindergarten fall activities don’t have to be boring worksheets, especially for math. The Leaf Counting to 20 digital activity is the perfect way to utilize technology (which our kiddos love) and enjoy the bounties of the fall.
