Adventures in the Early Autumn Forest
This week we made leaf crowns and magic wands with items we found in the forest. We took them with us on our hiking adventures.
We went back to Fort Tree in Yellowwood to climb and swing on the vines. Fort Tree, a magical, multi-level fort and climbing area created by 3 fallen pine trees, is becoming one of our favorite places for dramatic play and healthy risk-taking. It's also a peaceful place to snack and listen for birds.
On Thursday we went exploring down the big creek towards Lake Monroe. We found a great spot to play where we found an owl pellet and a salamander. There were lots of geodes, mushrooms and colorful leaves.
