Lee's Summit Parents As Teachers
There is still plenty of time to get out and enjoy this weather, do some apple picking or find a fall festival to attend. I love to take a hike and use my senses to smell, feel or to look at all the beauty that surrounds me. Depending on the age of your child you could look for certain colors, match items, or find things that start with a certain letter or sound. Take time to enjoy this weather and your family.

It’s Pumpkin Time
Take a trip to the pumpkin patch or pick up a pumpkin at the store. Observe it, draw it, feel it.
Sing the song, with new lyrics “Five little ghosties”... “Five little pirates”... “Five little monsters”
Make a scarecrow to decorate for fall.
A Fall Sensory Bin is always fun to explore. Find different types of pumpkins and gourds to explore. Add leaves or acorns if you would like!
The little ones can squish those pumpkin insides through a sandwich bag or you can let them explore with their hands. Always be cautious with the bags.
Golf tees in the pumpkin is great eye hand coordination and also lots of fun!
