We started off our Forest Friends day playing in the leaves:
It's hard to resist throwing, rolling, hiding, and generally being in the midst of these big leaf maple leaves this time of year.
While playing we could watch a squirrel dropping the opened seeds of the maple down on us, it was up pretty high, but it was fun to try and catch the helicopters as they fluttered down.
On into the woods we went stopping at "boat fort" for a snack and story time and observation of this fungus:
A little dancing action, and some time to ride the horse:
Then it was back to the leaves before we went to the shelter to craft some cute little cone squirrels.
What a fun fall day!
