The children played with ice, sticks & leaves.
They explored how deep & cold the mud puddle has become in the mud patch.
They enjoyed playing with a large cardboard box, it was a bus & a boat.
They had fun making perfect sandcastles and reading favourite books under the slide.
They enjoyed balancing on the planks & tree stumps.
Autumn or Fall provides the perfect opportunity to have fun with leaves & ice, when it is even colder it is always fun to leave different containers outside filled with water & various items to have fun with ice 'sculptures' the next day.
There were lots of great ideas for getting outdoors & having fun in the last link up but once again I loved this post from Fireflies & Mud Pies on stick play. I love any idea that can be replicated for little or no cost & this was such a one - and it proved that young children can & should be trusted to play with sticks.
