Top 5 Activities for an Awesome Autumn with your Children
Autumn… the years last, loveliest smile
William Cullen Bryant
Each season evokes different feelings. Having said farewell to the sizzle of summer, we celebrate the welcoming of Autumn officially on September 23rd and a new season of cosiness, warmth, simplicity and calm. It’s a perfect chance to revel in nature’s beauty and create happy new memories with your cherished little ones!
Below are some suggestions to light your bonfire of inspiration.
1. Pick apples and bake together
Apple picking is a wonderful way to teach your children about nature and the seasons. Take time before you go picking to study the stages of their growth and which apples may be ripe for the picking. Layer up and head out with your basket on an apple picking adventure! Enjoy the process of creating a delicious apple pie or crumble for the whole family to savour.
2. Go leaf collecting
The beautiful shades of autumn leaves are one of the most magical things about this season. Have fun collecting “rainbow leaves” in different shades and shapes. Roll around with your little ones on a pile of crunchy leaves and throw them in the air like confetti! Bring your favourite collection of leaves home and have fun doing leaf rubbings or make a leaf hanging. Check out our Instagram highlights for a few of our favourite ideas!
Drawing is an especially important outlet for children who do not yet have the verbal skills to communicate their feelings. Through your child’s art you are able to catch a glimpse into their rich internal world whilst conversely they are able to develop concentration, thought-processing and motor skills.
Welcoming a Great British Nanny into your home not only allows additional care for your child on a practical level, but also intellectually too. Giving your child the opportunity to be loved and cared for by a native English speaker opens countless gateways towards a beautifully thriving future!
