2. Autumn colors
Autumn is the most colorful of all seasons - red, brown, yellow, orange and green. This is definitely the perfect time to show your little explorers how many colors surround them! Take your backpack, think about the colors you will be looking for, and run for your search. Who will fill the whole backpack with the colors of autumn?
3. Fun with the leaves
The most classic form of fun - jumping into a pile of leaves, throwing leaves, or arranging creative patterns. The game that has been known for years is still enjoyable. And not only for children! This is an excellent opportunity for you to feel carefree again.
4. Leaf-blowing competition
Do you remember the game of who will keep the feather in the air for the longest time? You can use the leaves in the same way! Just put the leaf on your mouth and try to keep it in the air for as long as possible, using only your breath. It is not as simple as it seems. There will be a lot of laughter!
One of our favorite autumn activities besides treasure hunting in the park or forest is creating albums of leaves. Selecting the most beautiful specimens, creating patterns from them, and describing them. Learning and having fun in one! Moreover, a souvenir for years.
How to make long autumn evenings more pleasant? With candles! Well, not the usual ones, but in the autumn edition. Choose colorful leaves and stick them to a lantern. All you need is a lantern, glue, and leaves. You can also add a ribbon or jute string and it is done!
7. Autumn jewelry
Since we already have the treasures of autumn, let's use them in many ways. You can use acorns, chestnuts and even pumpkin seeds to make decorations. In order to give them a little more color, you can paint them earlier. Then just thread it on a string and beautiful necklaces or bracelets will be made.
We do not need to mention pumpkin cutting. Alternatively, we suggest painting it! Choose a large pumpkin, so that your child can feel free with his creativity, brushes and paint. And that is all! Simple, right? And the effects can be really impressive!
Since we already have the autumn climate, let's fill the house also with a beautiful scent. One of the options is to prepare apples for drying - it is healthy, traditional, and tasty. Cut the apples into slices, sprinkle with cinnamon as desired and put them into the oven. However, once in a while, it is good to have a little bit of sweetness. Especially if we are talking about self-baked apple pie or spicy biscuits and hot chocolate.
Movie or book night
When it's already dark outside the window, it means that it's the perfect time for a film or book evening. To get used to the autumn climate, cover up with our warm blanket, made of organic cotton, surround yourself with beautiful cushions, or hide in a sleeping bag. Use previously made lanterns, cookies, or dried fruits and take some tea, hot chocolate, or cocoa in your hand. Sounds cozy, isn't it?
