Fall is our favorite time of year. The colors are spectacular, the weather is joyfully pleasant, and the opportunities to get out and do things with the girls never end. Here are a few ideas at no cost/low cost that you can do to celebrate and enjoy the season.
Miss Moo and Miss Roo LOVE to gather treasures outside. We always take a bag of some sort with us on our adventures so that we can carry our treasures home. Moo actually made a treasure bag with an old tote that lives in our van.
Finding treasures in the fall is simple and fun. It's also a great way to get a solid hour of walking and exercise in without you or your kids noticing! Our collection usually contains:
- Leaves of all shapes and sizes for pressing and decorating.
- Sticks to use in crafts and activities. (Sometimes we use sticks to make letters rather than write them.)
- Acorns and tops.
- Pine cones.
- Rocks and pebbles.
- Remaining wildflowers.
Now that you have a wonderful collection of natural treasures, what can you do with them? We usually do a few simple things that the kids love.
