With a week off school and not much money, families need to find more thrifty ways of amusing their children.
We spent a few hours just walking to the supermarket and back looking at what Mother Nature had to offer during the Autumn season.
There were cobwebs
And a bee
and blue mushrooms
The children thought these looked very interesting!
We had been learning the letter T so had been doing trees – and what better way to emphasize this than to go out to the trees!
and to play with the falling leaves
And all the different colours we could find
And the leaves changing colour
And we even found leaves with thorns on the back!
And of course some were still green
And we collected lots of them up in our bags ready to do more craft
