Fall is officially here and the leaves are starting to change color and fall to the ground! Grab a rake, trash bag, and head outside! Work together to rake and bag up the leaves. You can take a break from raking and sort the leaves. Sorting is a great skill for kids to learn and leaves can be sorted into many different categories: big/small, brown/yellow/red/green, round/pointy. Talk to your child about the different seasons (“summer is over and now its fall. Next we’ll have winter!”) and changes that come with each season. Once the raking is finished, have your child help stuff the leaves into the bag. They can get a BIG armful or a SMALL handful. You can then go inside and have a nice warm cup of tea, apple cider or hot cocoa….
