The foliage was gorgeous this year, if a bit short lived. I drove around for a couple of weeks oohing and ahhing at the light shining through the amber and golden leaves, and sometimes it seemed like I was inside of a stained glass window. Then we had a big Nor’easter that blew the leaves off all of the trees in one fell swoop!
Before it was too late, I wanted to take our Fall Color Wheel Activity for a spin. My daughter is a bit young to understand the order of the color wheel, but we all enjoyed taking a nice hike on a sunny and warm Fall afternoon to gather bits of leaves, sticks, acorns and dried moss we found on the ground. It’s great for older toddlers to learn to identify and sort by color.
This Fall Color Wheel activity is a great tool to explore and celebrate Fall colors with your family. The file includes instructions to guide conversations with older explorers about how and why leaves change color. Try out this FREE color wheel activity soon before the colors of the leaves fade! It’s available to download in our family fun library. And we’d love to see your adventures! Use #exploreonh and if we feature your post, you’ll receive a free gift from our printables shop!
