Welcoming Autumn for Littles!

We started out morning with Apple Muffins and a pumpkin filled with greens and a few flowers from our yard!

I didn't have much planned for our day - but, did want to do something special for lunch. I came up with a scavenger hunt for lunch. I printed out pictures of different spots in our back yard ~

~ cut them out and tied pieces of raffia on. Then, tied them around the yard so the girls would have to hunt for their lunch!

I sliced an apple, made leaf shaped sandwiches, leaf shaped cheese and cookies and put it all in a Ziploc bag. Then, I put each girl's lunch inside a small pumpkin with the seeds scooped out.
I hid the pumpkins in our vegetable garden ~
Yeah! They found lunch!
