Autumn is in full swing and leaves have turned from green to beautiful fall colors. As the season continues, our outdoor spaces begin to fill with fallen leaves.

Let’s Get Started

Find some outdoor space like a backyard, courtyard, or park that has lots of fallen leaves. Gather up as many leaves as possible to create a fun outdoor leaf maze.

Draw and design your maze in your Nature Notebook. Draw different turns and dead-ends on your design. Your maze may be made of straight lines, circles, or any other cool designs. Don’t forget to create a way out!
