Fall is here! We love it!

Yesterday, I took the girls for a Fall Walk.

We carried a muffin tin, in order to collect {and sort} our fall treasures.  {I set this up as one of our #afterschoolinvitations – more on this idea in another post!}

The colours around us were truly amazing, and I was so excited to see the kinds of things the girls found.

They collected stones, pine cones, maple leaves, pine needles, various grasses and even crab apples!  {I added cinnamon sticks to the mix for an extra sensory touch!}

Once we returned home, I invited them to create a MANDALA with their collections. {They were introduced previously to the idea of mandalas this summer, where we created nature mandalas at the lake}.

The idea of radial symmetry was the art element we introduced, and it was such a soothing and relaxing artistic experience creating these temporal compositions.

The girls enjoyed wiping them away, and starting fresh.

This was such a fun way to combine naturemathematics {sorting}, and art
