The weather outside might be getting colder but fall is actually one of my favourite times of the year. There is something about the changing colours of the leaves,  the brisk cool air and the beautiful sunny blue skies. My husband and I love it so much we got married in  October! The downside is that my two littles had been complaining that it was too cold. The 2 celcius mornings are a bit brisk but staying inside is not an option for my sanity.  We also need to really  enjoy these days since -20C is only a couple of months away.  To get them outside and engaged, I threw together a Fall Scavenger Hunt. Then, since my 2 year old decided not to nap, we took our findings and made a nature craft!

This fall themed Scavenger Hunt is easy to do around the neighbourhood or in a park! I like to go for a walk around the block or head to the park to do the scavenger hunt so that I can enjoy some exercise  and fresh air too.

Extra Notes: My girls loved collecting more than one leaf. They also were really excited when we saw a bunny and a squirrel.  I like to write down  what we find  or climb so that we can talk about it later at supper time.
