Our leaves are falling around here - yay!
Are you guys playing in the leaves? What does your toddler think?
Are you doing any leaf-y crafts or activities?

The leaves have been changing for a while now here, but I think right now is the prettiest time yet!

Carrie loves crunching them under her feet.

We did one big project all together where the kids colored a big tree onto poster board and then cut and pasted construction paper leaves onto it.

Mia loves the leaves. The neighbors across the street have a maple tree so when we go to meet Alexander at school Mia always has to get two leaves that have fallen. She's gotta have one for each hand. We haven't done any projects but she does like to crunch them up and watch them fall and we talk about the different colors.

Cooper loves the leaves, my husband and I do not (30+ trees on 2/3 of an acre) .

We played in the leaves on Sunday and took some family photos. Cooper likes to help rake them into a pile and jump into them. He also likes it when we throw them up in the air and they "rain" down on him.

We haven't really done anything crafty with them. Not quite sure what to do!

Not many leaves have fallen here yet. They're just really starting to change colors. We're always a little behind everyone else. I look forward to playing and crafting with them though!

Yep, the leaves are falling around here and Brennan LOVES it! He helps DH rake them all into a pile and then jumps in them or buries himself. Every day now for the past week Brennan says, "More bury leaves" over and over. LOL.

Leaves are not really falling here yet - if they even will. Some years only like 1/2 fall lol! So no playing in leaves here!

Leaves are falling here and Kai is slightly sad, i think he thinks it hurts the trees. We haven't been around any big piles yet to play in. He does like to find cool ones though.

Meagan- we do need to come play in your leaves.

Let me know when you want to come over and we'll make a pile. Maybe Sunday?
