🍁 Pretty Pinecones 🍁

Fall is upon us and the toddlers are loving it! Our yard is a haven of fallen leaves. The children enjoy jumping in the leaves and creating big piles. Β They spend time looking up at the trees and noticing which branches have lost a lot of leaves. They are so observant. We brought in pine cones for the children to explore. After they explored the pinecones, the children painted them. We used our fall colours; red, orange and yellow.

The toddlers used different brushes to apply the paint onto the pinecones. Some stuck to one colour while others decided to mix it up. This was a very messy activity, which makes it even more fun!Β image

Once the pinecones dried, we hung them on our mobile in the block area. Now, the children enjoy looking up at their beautiful creations.
