{Home Preschool} Autumn

We’ve been umming and ahhing and procrastinating for a while now about what and where to send Blossom for her preschool education. So whilst we stall and work on making a decision I have loved doing a few preschool activities at home with her, especially as Autumn is my all time favourite season! Here’s what we’ve been up to…

The Open Home 459
Our Autumn themes have included sunflowers, leaves, conkers, apples, birds, spiders, poppies and pumpkins.

Peppermint play dough spiders, much nicer than the real things! We also made snails and caterpillars.
Richard Scarry's Best Word Book Ever! This was my book as a little girl and is already a hit with Blossom, so much to talk about on each page.

Bookwise we have immersed ourselves in the world of Julia Donaldson. Her rhyming style is great for language acquisition.

Blossom also adores these Usborne books, the stories are the perfect length for young preschoolers and the illustrations are incredibly sweet.
