November was unusually warm and we enjoyed lots of time outdoors before winter truly set in. We looked for signs of late fall, enjoyed the crunch of leaves underfoot and made some amazing discoveries:
A black and white feather, tiny in our hands....
and a hollow tree where treasures might be hidden or found!
We made autumn collage paintings by painting with fall colors on kraft paper, and then gluing pressed leaves we'd gathered on top, to the tune of Percy Shelley's Ode to the West Wind....
The glue was sticky on the fingers for the toddlers!
(There is another picture of the group working on their fall pictures in the photo album.)
