10 things to do with the kids this Autumn

It's nearing the end of summer and the children have already started to notice signs of Autumn all around us. Leaves are starting to change colour and fall and we have already spotted lots of juicy blackberries, in the woods, ready to pick.



As one season blends into the next I always start thinking about activities, here are some I am planning for Autumn:

1) Learning all about Hibernation and which animals hibernate

2) Making a bug hotel and Hedgehog Home to get close up with wildlife


3) Blackberry picking in our local woods and surrounding areas



4) Making leaf biscuits with the little ones for those extra cuppas!!



5) Collecting leaves and identifying trees - making leaf rubbings and clay decorations

 
 
6) Making a nature table with all their findings
 
 
 
 
7) Making bird feeders
 
 
 
8) Finding out why it gets darker earlier
 
 
9) Painting a large tree, writing high frequency words onto coloured paper leaves and sticking them onto the tree for revision
 
 
 10) Finding conkers and acorns then using them to create Art. Line a tray with paper and add drops of paint. Add the conkers and move the tray about so the conkers roll around in the paint, over the paper and see the great Art you've made!!
