I love Autumn, the changing colours and the falling leaves. I’ve been talking about the changing seasons with the kids and trying to explain the difference between the seasons.
Emmy knows that in Summer it is hot and in Winter it’s cold and hopefully that means snow, Spring and Autumn however are a little harder to explain and of course it is always easier to show them than it is to explain.
As we walk or bike ride to school daily we have been looking at the colours of the leaves and them falling from the trees – we’ve been collecting some and I’m drying those out for craft activities over the next few weeks. Talking about the colours we decided to make our own Autumn tree using hand and foot prints.
We continued to talk about the colours of the Autumn leaves as we got out the paints – Red, Orange and Yellow for the leaves and brown for the tree trunk.
Covering clothes with aprons we make hand prints with each colour (Red, Yellow & Orange) onto sheets of white paper.
