Nature Walk

Monday GG didn't have school due to Mr. Columbus.

Hey look! There's a new plot of land that was hidden by trees! Can I have a day named after me now?

Sorry, got sidetracked. Where was I? Oh, right, no school.
So Monday was the nicest day so far this week and I decided to take the kids for a nature walk. Mother Nature has really been getting my my nerves as of late, but sometimes you never know what good may come from her.

So each of the kids had a baggie with their names on them - heaven forbid I forget to label and their findings get mixed up! They collected leaves, sticks, rocks...all kinds of things! After we got home I plugged in my hot glue gun. They told me where to put things and I glued.

Paige decided to make a tree using her findings....

What a cute idea! Spencer is always finding all these leaves and bringing them home and I never know what to do with them! This is a great way to use them.

Those are so cute! What a great idea. I am with you on Columbus...why should he get a day? He was not a very nice man! I think it should be called "harvest day" :)

We had to ban leaves from the house when our daughter was little! I wish we would have started doing this earlier. I always hated telling her to leave her leaves outside!
