Remember that air is made up of tiny molecules of nitrogen and oxygen. When these molecules bump into things, they tend to push them around. It's much like throwing a handful of rocks at a tree. The rocks will crash into the leaves and move them. The air molecules are acting like lots of very, very, very, very tiny rocks.
