The air is crisp and clean and cool these days. It invigorates my soul after the heat of summer. We are once again back into a regular schooling routine and the natives are often restless. What can you do to keep them busy and run off that pent up energy?
Rake up the leaves and take a flying leap.
Take an autumn walk. Notice the changes in season,
Collect as many different colors and shapes of leaves you can, along with other fantastic treasures from nature and take home to create an interesting display or centerpiece for dinner.
Make Leaf-Color Prints. Take those colored leaves and place them on w —– cover with —- pound with a hammer, pull back cloth and reveal a beautiful masterpiece. All For The Boys has a great tutorial to show you how.
Take a driving tour to see the colors of the season.
Visit a nearby pumpkin patch.
Head out to the nearest playground. If it’s on the cool side, add an extra layer of clothing.
Take a vacation! One of the perks of homeschooling is taking vacations in the off season. Our favorite time of year for family vacations is September and October. The weather is beautiful, the crowds are thin, sometimes the entrance fees are discounted.
