Fall is almost here!!! I, like so many would say that fall is my favorite season. That slight chill in the air, pumpkin spice, the extra blankets you throw on the bed at night. Oh yes it is all so sweet.
Over the weekend we went on a nature walk and collected rocks, sticks, and some pretty freshly fallen leaves. The next morning we placed those collected items in the sand table and let the boys explore. W mainly liked hitting the sand with his shovel while B dug the sand with the sticks and had fun hiding the rocks under the sand and coming back to dig them up. He even made a "tree" from one of the leaves we collected.
B loved collecting items during our walk in his little pail and seemed to like playing with them afterwards as well. I loved that it was such a simple activity that can change each time we do it based on what we collect.
