I love autumn and am always so anxious for it to come around and as we had some very autumn like temps the last two weeks in August, I jumped the gun on the autumn project a little bit. I thought it might be fun for Kiddo to do some seed collecting.
First he painted and decorated an egg carton. I should mention that in subsequent days, the amount of glitter glue on the top has increased, especially in the center cavity. Squeezing substances from tubes is a favorite activity around here.
The next day (it took a day for the mound of glitter glue to dry!) we took a seed-collecting walk in the park and came back with a supply. He’s added to his collection since then when we see new types of seed pods. I think we will try something similar with leaves when they start changing.
