We love our Fridays! Today is a perfect day to be backyard explorer! A perfect day to study about fall and leaves. My girls absolutely love to rake leaves and jump in them. They really love to do leaf rubbings, but I wondered if they even understood why leaves change colors in fall. Today was a perfect opportunity to play with leaves and learn all about them.
Me: "Girls why do leaves change color in the fall?"
Oldest DD: "Because, all the good stuff in the leaves go to the branches and roots to get ready for winter."
Well I'm sure by the good stuff, she must mean nutrients. :)
Middle DD: Because it is fall!
Youngest DD: Because they just do!
I have found some great resources for learning about Fall and leaf identification. Hope you enjoy them.

Gather leaves, paste on jar, insert tea light and enjoy!
