Leaf Kicking


The half term holidays are here and the weather is still pretty mild for this time of the year.  We aren't reaching for our coats most days, we are managing long afternoons at the park without getting too chilly and it feels like we can really take in the beauty of Autumn together.  Dylan was sent home from school with a list of activities to do in half term, things like going on a train or bus,  baking a cake and kicking leaves in the park.

We are going to try and fit in as many of the activities as we can and kicking leaves was one of the easiest to cross off.  Our local park has plenty of leaves so armed with our best leaf kicking shoes, we went exploring.  I was sent a pair of Chatsworth boots from Strive Footwear and I love being able to join in with the children.

The ground was damp from rain and the leaves were more soggy than crispy but it didn't stop the fun.  We threw them in the air and danced as they fell, we built mountains and snowmen and stomped through them.  We kicked the leaves as high into the air as we could and we sat in the middle of them to examine them properly.

We found fallen trees and practiced our balancing and jumping off the ends and we played hide and seek amongst the ones still standing.  My boots have supportive technology which follows the natural contours of your feet which makes them not only super comfortable but also orthodontic and better for my posture.  Being on my feet so much with the children has made me think a lot more about the shoes I wear and these are perfect for our Autumn activities.

Cora loves the freedom of the park and the space to explore.  Whilst the boys are kicking and jumping she is learning to run and climb, discovering different textures and sensations and gaining independence.

We have so many more autumn adventures planned for the week and I think these experiences are so valuable for my curious, imaginative children as they learn about the world.
