Here are some fun activities you and your child can do together.
Experience the great outdoors by using your senses.
Feel different leaves and plants.
Are they smooth? Rough? Brittle?
This is also a great time to talk to your kids about plants in your area that are not safe or risky to touch such as, poison ivy.
Does the morning hours smell different than the evening hours?
Smell different flowers and plants. Record your findings.
In the morning, do you hear different sounds than in the evening? How are they the same? How are they different?
Fall is a brilliant time to explore the leaves of their shapes and colors.
Collect different leaves and trace them on a piece of paper to color later.
Do the old fun trick of rubbing a crayon on a piece of paper with the leaf underneath.
Cut them out to make a fun display or necklace.
Grab a bag and collect your items on a hunt for the things on your list.
Did you find some new items that you didn’t think or know about?
Look for animal tracks in your backyard, the woods, or a nearby park.
Can you guess which animal left them?
Snap a photo of them if you can, so you can do more research on them later.
For those that love to draw, make a sketch of them.
If you are celebrating this week, write us and let us know all the fun activities you discovered.
