Level 3:  Place them in a pile and have child(ren) pick a leaf say the letter, make it's sound, then give a word that starts with that sound/letter.  This shows further understanding of the alphabet, sounds and beginner reading skills.

For more variety you can scatter them around the table or ground and ask children to find a specific letter, then make it sound.  The little rhyme included with this product is perfect for playing with a small group of children.  As the children take their turns the rest of the group can recite in unison  - Leaves falling on the ground. Pick a leaf and say it's sound.
