Ah, my favorite season. I love fall and all that comes with it. We dove straight into letter F for fall last week and we had so many activities. Here are some of my favorites.
Investigating leaves with magnifying glass. We did not take time to write down our observations but it was still fun.
Art project found here. We used erasers to dip in the paint and simulate the indian corn.
Bean sorting. I had a leaf shaped veggie dish and it just so happened that it had three small sections and one large section. I put in three different beans and had her sort them. Great fine motor skills though she quickly became disinterested.
Gourd heads. I drilled holes in some acorn squashes and got out the Mr. Potato Head pieces and let them put them in the holes. Fun, fun, fun. Probably my favorite activity.
I made some play dough and put some spices in it so it smelled wonderful and the girls played and played.
I made an autumn sensory bin and the girls actually played with it a great deal. I was amazed to see both of them use their imaginations and play well independently.
Great week overall and reinforced just how much I love teaching my girls and spending time with them.
Thanks for reading!
