As the leaves change from green to gold and the hot sun turns down the heat, the beginning of fall begins! The world around us shifts gears in the anticipation of the cold that waits around the corner. But what do we do in the meantime? Well I’m glad you ask!

Whenever the air begins to cool, I can’t help but think of a nice hot cup of apple cider. So, why not make it ourselves using a little science! All that is needed are some Apples, Cinnamon Sticks, A big pan, and a learning cap!

 For the hands-on kiddo’s that love the feel of basically everything, build an Autumn wonderland to explore. These sensory items will keeps them entertained for hours as they explore the world THEY create!
