FALL FEAST (Episode P119a)
It's the Fall Feast holiday and the Howards are planning to visit Emily Elizabeth's grandparents. But a huge snow storm leaves them snowed in at the train station, along with many of their friends and neighbors. At first, everyone's spirits are very low but Clifford helps Emily Elizabeth realize that the group can celebrate the Fall Feast together and rejoice in its spirit of sharing.
Ideas to Grow On: Share
When we share with a friend, an experience can become more fun and rewarding. By giving children opportunities to share with others, they grow to better understand the spirit of cooperation. The following activities nurture:
- science and discovery skills
- art appreciation skills
- physical and motor skills
Fantastic Fall Canvas!
Visit your local botanical garden or park. Discuss with your child how plants change during the fall and what new colors appear in fall foliage. Bring along peaceful music and art supplies like an easel, canvas, sketch paper, crayons, and pastel chalk. Share supplies and ideas for creating an original fantastic fall canvas!
Make a wreath by collecting all sizes, textures, and colors of fallen leaves, acorns, nuts, small twigs, bird feathers, etc. Help your child safely hot-glue objects to toothpicks. Arrange, then press toothpicks into ring. Hang this unbe-leaf-able fall wreath with wire or small wreath hook.
