I am so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers

I have always thought of summer as my favorite season, because the beach is my absolute favorite place to be. I have to admit as I have matured and had kids I have grown fonder of the beauty of autumn. It is a time I find myself pulled back into my love for nature and all of the amazing things surrounding us. Our love of autumn runs deep, so grab yourself some hot cider and stay awhile. We have so much to share. 

We love to make natural creations outside. Little B and Bells created this nature camp (their sweet imaginations).

You can't beat nature walks in the fall with the whole family.

We have spent several days enjoying Sweet Smelling Natural Cinnamon Play dough 

Tot schooling with pumpkins is definitely fun. If you are interested in the printables they can be found here.

Fun at the Farm Stands. A great hands on sensory and learning experience.

Pumpkin Patch Picking

I hope all children have a love for autumn. 

In our house we try to remember "never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed." 
- Maria Montessori

That is why I decided it was the perfect time for a washing station.

Nothing Fancy just good old fashioned markers, glue and glitter. It was perfect! 

A simple yet lovely autumn nature table.

The bowl is filled with daily treasures that the children find on our nature walk. We also have a huge basket on our porch filled with acorns, pinecones, leaves, and sticks.  

Our Play Space is set up for autumn. 

I hope you enjoyed your glimpse into our amazing autumn days. We always love having you and hope you come back soon.

October’s Party

October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came—
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.

The Chestnuts came in yellow,
The Oaks in crimson dressed;
The lovely Misses Maple
In scarlet looked their best;
All balanced to their partners,
And gaily fluttered by;
The sight was like a rainbow
New fallen from the sky.

Then, in the rustic hollow,
At hide-and-seek they played,
The party closed at sundown,
And everybody stayed.
Professor Wind played louder;
They flew along the ground;
And then the party ended
In jolly "hands around."

~George Cooper

Interested in our beautiful playstands :) They can be found at Elves and Angels

The lovely Playsilks you see and beautiful rainbow silk scape is from Sarah's Silks

I can't imagine our house without them. 

Have a wonderful autumn.
