Fall Fun

October 18, 2010

Here are a few of things we have been doing around here to get into the season:

Besides the Whack-o-Lantern, of course.

Books:

Bats at the Library by Brian Liesis a cute sing-song story with engaging illustrations that encourages children to escape into the world of books

 

 

 

We Gather Together by Wendy Pfeffer shares harvest festival ideas from throughout the ages and around the world such as Jewish Sukkot, Chinese Moon Festivals and, of course, Thanksgiving. The back of the book offers some simple ideas to bring the festivals home.

 

 

 

Leaf Man (Ala Notable Children’s Books. Younger Readers (Awards))
by Lois Elhert is a clever book with art made from leaves. It is inspiration to get out and collect your own leaves and try to make something out of them.

 

 

 

Activities

Corn mazes (find one near you)

Visit to a pumpkin patch (for the annual picture of course)  Read these photo tips before you go.

Bake a pumpkin something (pie, bread, muffins, whatever!)  Don’t forget to roast the seeds.

Scooping and sorting activities with spider rings or other spooky-themed items in rice or sand using fingers or tongs.

Nature walks to places we visited in the summer to see what changes have happened.

 

What are YOU doing to celebrate the season?
