October Leaf-Jumping



Nothing says fall fun as much as some good, old-fashioned leaf-jumping!

And then the facilitator, who always has very creative ideas, had the kids tape leaves on themselves and the grown-ups to pretend we were trees. I really want to try to think up more creative ways like these to use natural elements, like leaves and acorns, to inform our learning and make the most of each season....
