This is a great way to entertain five cousins while at Grandma and Grandpa's house!
You can just barely see Sam's shoes sticking out of the leaves in the picture above!
Thanks family for playing and being silly with my girls outside while I was having an awesome weekend with my two best friends from college! So sorry that I couldn't be there to be silly with you all! _________________________________________________________________________________________
The Nitty Gritty!
Much like tree climbing, playing in the leaves is kind of an old-fashioned activity. I don't know how many parents still let their kids jump in piles of leaves, roll around and bury themselves in the leaves but every parent should be! It is a great hands-on outdoor play activity that is free and so simple. But the opportunities are endless.
Games/activities you can do in a pile of fall leaves -
- Run, jump and be buried in them
- Dig through the leaves for insects
- Pretend to be insects as you crawl through the leaves
- Create a large pile and hide a treasure in the middle for your child to dig and find
- Let your child dig through the pile of leaves to find special or unique leaves, leaves that don't match or leaves with the most colors
- Throw leaves up and see how many you can catch as they fall down
So get outside and play in the leaves with your kids!
