When you get home, create a sorting game and arrange your child in color, shape, and size. You can also introduce the concept of comparison here, by arranging your child’s squash and squash from the smallest to the most numerous – and vice versa.
2. Continuing a Scavenger Hunt
What is the best time to go a walking in nature or hiking than now? The leaves change color and the air is fresh, making it the perfect time to get out there and wander around. Set up a scavenger hunt and challenge your child to find and collect natural objects as you walk, such as leaves, acorns, and pinecones, or objects of a specific color.
3. Create a Nature Art Project
The same items you get in scavenger hunting can be used as art supplies. Take it out, along with paper, paint, and glue, and see what your child does! Leaves are so versatile – show your child different things you can do with them, such as using crayons to make leaf rubbings, tracing them on paper, or making a nature collage. .
4. Challenge the Feelings
Help your child explore different fabrics and developed his fine motor skills and vocabulary by placing a collection of objects in a trash can or box for him to touch and look at. These items may include dried ears of corn and / or grains, dried beans, leaves, acorns, kidney, lung, or mini squash. Afterwards, add tools like tweezers or a scoop that he can use to move things around. Give him more space so he can move things from one to another. This is even more fun for babies!

Keep an adventure in apple picking (again, check in first with the orchard to make sure they follow the latest health and safety protections) and bring some home to bake an apple pie. Install the appropriate resistance equipment and help your child read the amount of each ingredient you need. Afterwards, he puts the ingredients in a bowl and mixes everything.
Talk to your child about Thanks and what it means to give thanks. Afterward, share what you both appreciate. Flip the magazine over to find photos of each item. Cut it out, glue it to a piece of paper, and make a collage (if you don’t have a magazine, draw photos instead!). If your child knows how to write each letter, help sound out the words and write what is under its picture.
