Fall Touch Walk
Is it time to relax and enjoy the beautiful fall weather? Take your child on a fall touch walk and you'll both appreciate the season!
What to do:
- Ask your child what things outside remind him of fall.
- Invite him to go with you on a special fall touch walk.
- Outside, feel the cool fall air. Ask your child if he sees anything that comes in the fall.
- If you can touch it, like an acorn, do so. If you can't, like a squirrel, ask him how he thinks it would feel to touch.
- Check out the leaves, seed-heads, and dead twigs.
- Let him decide what things are only there in the fall and which ones would be different in another season.
Let's Talk: Ideas to Explore Together.
- What fall things did you find to touch today? How did they feel?
- Do you think the same things would feel different to touch in the spring?
While you are having fun together, your child is developing observational skills, language skills and an understanding of the senses.
