Lay out the leaves on a piece of paper.
Find a matching coloured crayon and draw a line next to the leaf in the same colour.
Write the name of the colour on the line (or you do it if they’re too young!) next to the leaf.
Match the leaves with lollipop sticks.
Use coloured sticks or use matching-coloured crayons to colour in natural-coloured sticks.
Take it further:
Why not stick the matching leaves onto the lollipop sticks to take home?
