Fall Fun: Leaf Animals
from Wildlife Promise
Clouds fill the sky, and raindrops fall. But there is sunshine in the autumn leaves—so brilliant against the gray background.
I find myself reminiscing this day, recalling a damp afternoon last fall when my kids and I ventured outside. We gathered leaves and other natural materials and fashioned animals out of them. We had no plan when we stepped out the door, but that’s the beauty of unstructured play: Imagination guides you. And leafy critters—be it a jellyfish or bird on the wing (my favorites in this image)—connect you with nature and one another.
Cheers to outdoor play!
