Music & Art Appreciation
Listened to Vivaldi's Autumn with a beautiful slideshow of Autumn inspired artwork and photographs on youtube.com.
We baked Pumpkin Pie and drank apple cider. We also made an apple pie and are still eating the apples we picked a few weeks ago. (Sorry, I forgot to take a picture of these.)
Tissue Paper Autumn Leaves
Nature Walks & Nature Color Scavenger Hunt
(We actually did this last year for the Feast of St. Francis and many times since. we didn't get to that this year for his feast day, but it fit perfectly in with this week's theme.) Pumpkin loves this activity. It's an egg carton that I colored each slot different colors of crayons, and he has to find things in nature that color. Some seasons, certain colors are harder than others. Although this time, he found a rock that was very blue.
I had to help with this one, but they loved watching the leaves we collected on our nature walk "appear" on the paper. Apple Tree Song & Apple Counting
Way up high in an apple tree, ten little apples smiled down at me I shook that tree as hard as I could, down came the apples M-m-m-m they were good.
This is a felt board with felt apples and tree cut-outs.
Watching squirrels collect nuts and acorns and then shelling peanuts to eat for snackSince not enough leaves have fallen from our trees to play in, we looked at pictures of our family playing in the leaves last Fall.
