Autumn has well and truly arrived, bringing with it lots of lovely loose materials for children to play and create with. Here are some great ideas for activities and games you can play with the children. The best way to start is to get outside and collect the resources together, as that is an adventure in itself!
If your outside area is more concrete jungle than a green one, why don’t you bring large bags with you to collect leaves and bring them back to your setting? I have done this in the past, much to the delight of the children. It kept them engaged and entertained for hours and provided a starting point for many activities and interests.
