It is never too early to think about the fives senses and focus on them with your little one.
Sight: The turning leaves are a natural. They come in all colors, are plentiful in most places, and are safe.
Sound: Back to the leaves again. Crunch them up and step on piles of them. Listen to them fall.
Taste: Apples are major at this time of year. They are in their absolute healthiest state, and they can be prepared in all different ways. Here are some starters: baked with the core removed, dipped in honey, as apple sauce, in pies, as cobblers, and as the very popular apple crisp.
Touch: Old fashioned pumpkin carving is a natural. You have the hard, outer part, the soft inner fill, and the gooey seeds.
Smell: Your oven will speak for itself. Colder weather brings about warmer foods. Ohhh, those aromas!
