Our Autumn activities 

  
The air has become crisp. It’s such a cosy time of year. Here are some of the things we have been doing to welcome Autumn. 

  
Some absolutely gorgeous 3 part cards by Puzzleheads. These cards are perfect for Quentin. Great detail, and lots of other complimentary products such as matching wooden puzzles and colouring PDF’s. He can easily match the picture to picture and is learning to match the words. This is yet another way we observe and provide materials for his sensitive period for language. He is now able to sound and then make an educated guess about what larger words may be. 

  
Quentin’s love of geography continues. He uses his Little Passports subscription almost everyday. We explore what is happening around the planet in terms of seasons. He knows our friends south of the equator are opposite to us and therefore just coming into spring. We look up how other cultures and countries celebrate Autumn. 

  
 
Finally as always, there is Practical Life. The right sized tools make it fun for him. Raking leaves is such a fantastic activity because it incorporates so many parts. Gross motor, fine motor and sensorial. It also expends a lot of energy which at 3.5 years old, Quentin really needs. 

  
Finally one of our favourite activities is making applesauce using our peeler. Quentin loves using this because he can do it but it isn’t easy. It takes lots of coordination, and concentration. The apples come out as peeled and in spirals which he also loves. 

Our recipe is simple: 

  
We hope you are enjoy whatever season you find yourself in.

  1. What a lovely post about my favourite time of year! I’m imagining some kind of extension on those three part cards involving matching seed to fruit…

    That top photo is great! Bow ties are cool. : )
