The Changing Leaves - Waxing colorful Leaves
The leaves outside our home are gorgeous: reds yellow, crimsons, greens, and every shade of brown. Today we embarked on an Outdoor Hour Challenge from the blog Handbook of Nature.
Acorns - felting acorns
We are LOVING the cool weather of fall, and the lack of bugs!! We've
been collecting acorns from our front yard (simply because they are
there) and Hadley and Finley have been finding nut shells on the rocks
and driveways care of the squirrels, so when I came across this activity
I just had to try it.
Fall Craft Roundup
Our fingers have been busy here in the last few weeks with scissors and
paper and fabric and felt, and our house is filled with hanging
reminders of our hard work. I've shared some of our favorite projects,
but here is a roundup of some of the things we've been up to:
Leaf Print Flags
It's that time of year again, when the leave start to shift, change and
begin their slow fall to the ground. In anticipation of the fall
colors, we made a painted leaf bunting for our home to celebrate the
changing season. It was a perfect activity for 4 year olds, but even the
1 year old helped collect leaves and did a bit of her own painting.
It is that time of year when the cold nights and long hours of darkness
again draw us more and more into our homes, to sit by our hearths and
snuggle next to those big and little bodies we love.
A Little Turkey Love
This week we are full of thanks for the many wonderful things in our
world, and while we share thanks around our table every evening, we are
looking forward to celebrating our thanks on turkey day.
Last year we waxed leaves and made these lovely garlands. It was one of those activities you want to save and try again.
