The first week’s nature walk for October in Exploring Nature With Children is Autumn Leaves. We headed off for a rather wet Autumn leaf hunt determined to brave the rain.
We found a lot of beautiful Maple leaves for our collection, then Rose began hunting for conkers.
We managed to collect a good haul, all the while discussing how leaves change colours.
We headed home and came across a large growth of fungus on the pavement edge
Once home, we got stuck into our nature journals.
Next job; preserving our Autumn leaves!
