One of my favorite pastimes before having kids was to go under a huge maple tree and watch the leaves fall. I called it “the dance of fall.” It was so relaxing and lovely to watch them twirl, flip, and frolic on their way down.
Now that I have kids, we always try to find ways to get back to nature. Our schedule is so busy, so we tend to do more of the just enjoying nature than creating with it. Below, I share a little bit of both for those who are busy and don’t have time to create, and for those of you who want to feel nature heart pounding in the palm of your hands as you feel the wet dirt sliding off your fingers.
This is a great way to spend time with your kids and give them an opportunity to explore nature.
