This is our nature table for the beginning of Autumn, I am sure it will change quite a few times over this season with little treasures being added here and there from our morning nature walks…
These are a few of the books I love to refer to throughout the year while following the seasons and festivals… They are really beautiful and worth adding to you personal library at home. They are filled with recipes, activities, festivals and much more…
Festivals Family and Food by Diana Carey and Judy Large
All Year Round by Ann Druitt
The Children’s Year by Stephanie Cooper
I also treasure these lovely titles, they are filled with the most amazing inspiration, The Big Summer Activity Book really is wonderful! And so are all the rest:)
The Big Summer Activity Book by Anne and Peter Thomas
Earthwise by Carol Petrash
Nature’s Playground by Fiona Danks
Crafts Through the Year by Thomas and Petra Berger
Caiden has just started with a weather block, so each day he records the type of weather we are experiencing. Since we are heading into Autumn and our trees are all showing signs of transformation, we though a lovely art activity would be to do some leaf rubbings.
First we collected different leaf shapes that had already fallen to the ground.
Then we took some white paper and place the leaves under it one at a time. Took a flat crayon and rubbed over the area where the leaf was placed and a beautiful impression emerges on your paper… It is fun activity for Spring or Autumn…
Here is the finished leaf collage:)
Happy Tuesday everyone:)
