Here’s a little something for if you’re heading out for a walk this weekend. The weather forecast is looking positively balmy for Sunday, perfect to head out and explore all the changes that Autumn is starting to bring.
We went to explore a wooded garden last weekend and took a basket for each of the children to collect anything they wanted, to make a start on our Autumn nature collection.
They loved their little baskets, especially Amelie who, despite getting a bit of a scare from a huge statue of a stag and needing a big cuddle, clutched hers tightly all the way round!
This week I made a start on our Autumn nature table. I laid out some of the things the children had collected on our walk, using a mirror to enhance their explorations. I also added some conkers and pine cones I had packed away last year, some laminated Autumn leaves I had, and a hungry squirrel!
So next time you go for a walk, why not grab a basket, or even a little bag, and see what your children can find?!
