An autumn bucket list!

After a long and somewhat miserable summer, summer has come to an end.

For many the thought of Winter/ Autumn is a little depressing, its the end of our not so great summer. Autumn has so much to offer though and this is often forgotten.

Just think of all the fun you can have and the learning opportunities autumn brings.

What to do this autumn!

  1. Leaves

The leaves will be falling and the colours are just simply beautiful. Go leaf kicking, leaf picking. then make pictures with your leaves, use them for prints and for colleagues.

2. Conker picking

Conkers usually fall from the trees at the end of September and kids love them.

Pumpkin picking is great fun near halloween and then you can take the pumpkins home and carve them. You can usually go to cafe at a pumpkin farm too, so you could make it in to day trip.
