Yesterday I took my girls for a walk around the lake.
It is a strange time of year, because already the leaves are falling and the weather is cooler than normal.
The falling leaves reminded me of an idea I had just discovered this past summer.
So, I quickly told all of the girls to look for leaves in different shapes, sizes and colors and collect them as we walked the lake. It was so much fun to listen to my younger two get excited over the leaves they had found and want to share their discoveries. My oldest just grabbed some leaves without giving it any thought. She later regretted her decision!
When we returned home we hopped onto the computer and l shared the Land Art link that inspired my decision to have the kids collect leaves as we went on our walk.
The girls got VERY excited as they thought of the wonderful creations they could make with their leaves. Even Olivia was excited, and decided she would go into the backyard and collect a better selection of leaves! J
Here are our creations!
This simple activity supplied a couple hours with entertainment and creativity for all of my girls…even the one who thought she was a bit too big to be collecting leaves!
This fall if you get the chance to create some Land Art I would highly suggest it! Such a fun activity filled with memories in the making!
