Autumn Spotters

Remember back in the Spring when I did the activity to spot the signs of the new season? Well, here's one for the Autumn!

Here's what you should look for when the weather starts to turn autumnal.

The turn of the trees

One of the main sights to confirm Autumn is on the way is the leaves changing. Can you spot the following colours?

Things that grow

Autumn is a great time to see things that grow, which you wouldn't normally see in Spring. How many can you spot?

Animals preparing for winter

Some animals head to warm climates for winter and some stay here but hoard food to see them through the winter months. Which animals can you see?

A change in clothing

People will start to wear warm clothes and maybe wellingtons. Can you spot them?

A turn in the weather

The weather will begin to become colder and wetter. What signs of a change in weather can you spot?

 Now pull on your coats, possibly your wellingtons too and lets go looking for Autum!

  1. Great post and a fun activity for little ones, although I think here in the UK we can spot the rain in any season lol
    Thanks for linking up to #AnythingGoes :)

  2. Love this! We love autumn in our house and I think we've spotted all of these so far! In fact, I keep discovering random acorns and conkers hidden around our house that my son has brought home with us - for his memory box apparently, yet somehow they never stay there!

  3. We are fully embracing Autumn and are currently on the hunt for conkers, we seem to be failing this year in finding any! Thank you for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove

  4. I love this - Autumn is my favourite season I think. We found loads of conkers the other day, and we've seen lots of noisy geese flying in their big Vs too. #SharingTheBlogLove

  5. Great spotting ideas! Its a lovely visual summary of autumn. #SharingtheBlogLove
