We have been so very lucky this year to enjoy our extended warm days up until this point! Besides the small snow drop we had in September, this morning was the first that there was frost outside. The children have been soaking up the warmth, and enjoying every possible moment out there that we can. Here is our last outdoor snack until spring:
Kaliana harvested the last garden offerings, and shared them with her friends (I kept them away from the dried beans though - best for soup ;)). She gathered fall chives, dried corn, beans from the teepee, and sunflower seeds from the garden house that the children loved so much. The birds love it too, and we are delighted by their chirps as they swoop down and perch on the sunflower heads, getting their fall snacks.
Because I focus on open-ended art activities, I offered black and gold, and orange and black, as paper and paint combinations this week. The children painted with these spooky colours and really enjoyed themselves. Happy Fall!
