Halloween Activity Day 8: Leaf Collecting

I know this is probably one of the simplest things we could do but the weather was just amazing tonight and I couldn't resist. It's getting cool and crisp in the evening- almost fall like. I knew Emerson would love carrying her little bucket and picking up leaves and rocks along the way. I also knew that we would be able to use whatever she collected for a fun craft.

After we filled up her bucket, we walked around part of the neighborhood and checked out some of the Halloween decorations. She was so excited by something so simple!
And, of course, we never go outside without stopping at the playground for at least a few minutes.
We spent about two hours outside this evening and I have to say that that this little girl's day was made. She loved picking up leaves and acorns, carrying her bucket, and playing at the playground.  I don't think E could have asked for anything better! Check back tomorrow to see what we do with our fall treasures.

The look on her sweet face says it all! I'm so excited about the weather cooling off finally so we can do more outside w/o sweating to death! lol Can't wait to see what you guys do with your treasures! :)
