Autumn Art
Stepping out this morning it definitely felt like autumn had well and truly arrived. It was one of those perfect autumn mornings when it's cold, crisp and sunny. Some little people even managed to coordinate their look (in their Elfie knitwear) with the striking autumn colours...


Here's hoping the weather stays bright for the coming weekend. That way we can get out and collect some of the amazing leaves and create some autumn leaf art. Here are some of our favourites...

If some of the things we collect don't lend themselves to being cut, stuck or painted, we might just use them to create a 'nature table' indoors!

Happy Autumn everyone x
Where have all the leaves gone?
It is fascinating to see the world through the eyes of children. This is the first year that my eldest son Oliver, who is 3 and a half has really noticed and commented on the seasons changing. We have a small tree in our garden that much to Oliver's horror has lost all its leaves. He was so concerned by its bare appearance that he called me over exclaiming "Mummy I don't want the leaves to fall off". After I explained that the leaves will return in spring he quickly saw the benefits of the fallen leaves. Not only were they fun to play in with his younger brother, they also provided a nice soft landing while learning to ride a bike without stabilisers on a recent trip to Bedgebury Pinetum
