Whilst I love summer – the sun, the warmth, the long evenings, I am also enjoying the arrival of Autumn this year.
Little Bear is enjoying seeing the leaves fall and crunching through them. He’s desperate for rain and puddles so we can go splashing in his new dinosaur wellies. And he loves that he can now wear his new yellow coat!!
The other day we collected leaves and used them to make a picture. Little Bear’s favourite part was squeezing the glue on and spreading it out, and then squashing the picture with a big book to help the leaves stick.
The one downside of all these leaves is the leaf blowers that our council seem fond of this year. On our way to pre-school this morning we got blasted by the debris leaving us both with watering eyes. The man then stopped to let us pass, but when he started again the noise made Little Bear jump out of his skin!! Mean mummy just laughed!
I feel like this Autumn we will be able to do all the fun activities I imagined we would and with Little Bear actually joining in and having fun rather than me doing it by myself! Leaf crunching, puddle jumping, pumpkin carving, fireworks pictures, cosy afternoons under a blanket – bring it on!
