Katy, Daniel, Wind and Leaves A SHORT STORY FOR YOUNG CHILDREN BY CHRIS BOWER©2019


It is a very windy day. All the leaves have blown down from the trees and are scattered all over the garden.


“It is time to sweep up the leaves,” says Daddy. He goes to the shed and gets out a besom, like a witch’s broom. He tries to sweep up the leaves, but the wind tries to blow them away again. Then the wind stops blowing and Daddy sweeps the leaves up into piles. Just then the wind starts to blow once more and all the leaves are scattered.


When the wind finally stops, Daddy works hard to sweep the leaves into piles again. This time, he asks Katy and Daniel to sit on the piles of leaves, just in case the wind starts to blow again. Sitting on a pile of leaves, Daniel picks up a handful of dry leaves and throws them at Katy. Katy thinks this is fun and throws a handful of dry leaves at Daniel. Soon they are having great fun with the leaves and leaves are everywhere.


“You are worse than the wind,” says Daddy with a laugh. “I am going inside for a coffee until the Katy and Daniel tornado has passed!”


A little later, both the wind and Katy and Daniel have run out of puff. They then sweep up the leaves into piles for Daddy. When he comes out he is pleased to see the neat piles of leaves. He soon takes the leaves into a corner of the garden where they will stay until they become manure for the flowers and vegetables.

Daddy tells Katy and Daniel that there are other things to do with leaves. They collect some leaves with interesting shapes and bright colours and take them indoors.


Daddy shows them what to do. Some of the leaves Katy threads onto a string and makes a lovely necklace. Some of the leaves Daniel sticks onto a sheet of paper to make a beautiful pattern.


Then Daddy tells them one of his favorite poems: “Ode to autumn


The leaves fall off the trees


The leaves ought not to fall off the trees Ought’em”


This makes them all laugh. “I do like leaves,” says Katy.

AND NOW FOR SOMETHING TO DO...


Plasticine Modelling


For this you will need plasticine and possibly a cocktail stick.


1. Last month, we carved a bar of soap. This is the opposite. Instead of taking pieces off you add them on. First, decide what you want to make. You could make a witch, an elephant, a frog or anything you like. You might like to make the same as last month, just to see how different carving and modelling are.


2. Choose the right colour plasticine and start with the biggest part. For an elephant this would be the body.


3. Soften the plasticine in your hand and make it into the shape you want.


4. Add the extra parts using the right colour. If you are making a witch, then, after the body you could add the head, then the arms and legs, then the hat and finally a broomstick.


5. Use a cocktail stick for fine details like eyes or hair.


Hint. You will find that mistakes do not matter so much. You can always start again – not like carving a bar of soap!
