LEAF PEEPING SEASON
It’s finally here!! Fall foliage “leaf peeping” season. Mother nature is showing her love for us by displaying all the colors of the rainbow as the cooler temperatures ready the trees to bare their branches for winter. Whether you hike, bike or drive - your opportunities to make memories of this unique, gorgeous time of year are limitless. The National Park Service is one of our favorite places to go for reliable information about the Great Outdoors. https://www.nps.gov/subjects/forests/leaf-peeping.htm
While you’re “there”, some suggestions for fun activities with the little ones are: collecting many differently colored leaves and gluing them to a poster board. Use your imagination as you prepare the array. You can make a rainbow pattern or a multi-layered random collage. You can also display them separately for identification later. Using the leaves as patterns the kids can “paint” leaves on the driveway with sidewalk chalk and, of course, there are “leaf rubbing” artworks using paper and crayons!
Another great resource for outdoor adventurers is the National Forest Foundation. In fact, you probably don't know all 10 of their facts that you can find at https://www.nationalforests.org/blog/10-things-you-didnt-know-about-our-national-forests. Wherever you go - there are you are! Don't miss the grand thrill of Mother Nature in each of her many glorious seasons1!

A poem lovely as a tree”
