I Love Fall

I love fall! Growing up, this was the time of year of jeans and sweatshirts, playing in the leaves with our family's dog. It was the time of year of football and cozying up with a book. I guess not much has changed!
I have been collecting fall ideas to add to our days of home school and our evenings of festivals and playing outside. Here are a few of my favorites:
Make a roly poly igloo Hollow out the inside of a raw potato. Make a small door on the side like an igloo. Put your potato near the ground. Pile leaves around and water the potato slightly. Check for roly polies the next day.
Investigate spider webs Use a spray mist bottle to mist a spider web and look closely at the design.
Collect leaves Collect leaves in as many different colors as you can find.
Rake leaves Buy a child-sized rake and let your little one rake away.
Take a hike We live on a mountain, so we're totally spoiled on this one.

  1. I love fall, too! The crispness in the air, the smell of someone burning leaves, football, brilliant colors and the ability to have bonfires without dying of heat exhaustion.
