If you go to you’ll find some great and easy ideas for a day in the country with the children. School is beginning, but there are still those beautiful fall weekends when the leaves are turning and you enjoy every moment out of doors. Grab some snacks and your water bottles and drive to a woodsy area. This site has suggestions for making fall foliage journals, faux fossils from found objects, modeling clay and then plaster of paris. Gather some leaves for the annual leaf rubbings and also a few apples to dry and turn into puppet heads. Create your own scarecrows and just generally enjoy the fall change of colors and the crisp autumn days that always let us know another winter is just around the corner.
