Time to pack away the Summer gear and pull out the warm knit sweaters and scarfs! It feels like Autumn has snuck up in full force. I'm not not a fan of cold weather, especially, having to take New York City public transportation. Although, I must admit, from Fall to Winter this city comes alive.
The leaves start to change and fall away giving us New Yorkers a sense of wonder about the nature that we generally lack in the city around us. Halloween is peeking it's head just around the corner getting us ready for the next coming months of festivities and fun. The Summer was great but when it's gone I think we do well in adjusting to the change.
Another great thing about the change of season is the opportunity to create seasonal crafts. You can go out to the park and make nature your lesson and craft! This is a great time to teach the kids about fresh beginnings, colors, maybe a little biology lesson in there somewhere.
Leaf Rubbings are a great way to work on your childs' motor skills and to help them develop an artistic eye for color and composition. Check out this blog post by Mama.Papa.Bubba to see how lovely her daughter's leaf rubbing project turned out.
Break out jackets, scarves, boots and hoodies. The arrival of all the best Fall festivities are in full motion and I love it!
