Colors of Fall Mason Jars

Fall may not be changing the weather around here in Florida but it is definitely apparent in the colors of the leaves!

We made these super cute and easy Fall Colors Mason Jars quite by accident and they turned out so perfect! We found lots of different colored seeds from the palm trees in our neighborhood (not sure what they're called?)

Anyway, all you need for this little craft is some time to go outside with your kiddos, a keen eye for color and some sort of glass container to display these beauties.  

I love simple activities that involve getting kids in nature.  

You can work on color discrimination and counting as a bonus learning activity. 

1. Color discrimination: A quick game of I-Spy will do the trick.  Or just a simple verbal cue to say "let's find all the yellow leaves." 

2. Counting: When you return home from your foraging, say "Let's see how many yellow things we have" or "How many leaves."  First line them up, and then count them together.   

Enjoy! Happy October 😀
