When it gets dark, grab a flashlight and go on a spooky walk.
Hint! Cut ovals out of reflective tape and put them on index cards. Hide the cards in bushes and trees and then hunt for them in the dark. They’ll look just like animal eyes peeking out at you!
Hang a large outdoor thermometer on your playground. Before going outside have children predict what the temperature will be. Read the thermometer when you go outside.
*Keep a monthly graph of the temperature each day.
Have a safety lesson about riding toys. Draw parking spaces and road signs on the pavement with chalk and have the children practice riding their bikes and obeying the signs. Make a driver’s license with the child’s photo, name, address, and personal attributes.
