Some of the best adventures are the ones close to home. For this installment of Little Explorer, SΓΈren and I took a walk around the neighborhood collecting different color leaves. As soon as we stepped outside it started to rain. He’s quite chatty lately, “Mama this a orange leaf!”. “Look mama, this one pretty”. He uses the word mama like punctuation and I don’t mind. I melt every time he says it. His voice is so tiny and soft. We talked about the colors of each leaf before it went into his basket. We counted. We walked. He chatters about everything with such a sense of excitement and wonder. Everything is new to him, so I stay quiet and let his mind explore.

Did you collect leaves in the Fall as a kid?Β What did you do with them?

  1. Again, another sweet post. When I was young we used to rake all of the leaves up in the yard into giant piles and jump into them. It was so much fun. Are you guys going to create some kind of craft with the leaves?

  12. Ohhhh the little buddy with his little hat and leaveeeeeeesuhhh.

  13. It’s amazing how many leaves you can find the beauty in during fall. When I was a child we would collect them and iron them in between two pieces of wax paper. Very pretty.

  14. oh my goodness he is so stinking cute!! I live in Arizona, when it is this time of year I wish we had leaves that change color and fall.

    1. I know, right?! All partiality aside, I really can’t get over his cuteness right now. It usually takes the leaves here until late November to start to come down nicely.

  15. He reminds me of my son. he is so cute.
    though not in fall , I usually collect leaves and press it in a book and use it for scrapbooks and various other things.

  16. I never really collected this kind of thing as a child, to be honest, my parents weren’t much into spending this kind of time with us. That’s ok though, I would just play with the leaves any way πŸ™‚
    They’d be nice pressed in books I reckon!

  17. I definitely collected leaves as a kid and made things with them. I grew up mainly on the East Coast where there were tons and tons of trees and leaves in all different colors – my fav time of year!

  18. Such cutie pies, and I love this idea. I’m going to have to take my son out to pick up leaves. πŸ™‚
