Rowan can't wait for pumpkins this fall, so I had to tell him that September is all about sunflowers and apples. After that, October will be all about the pumpkins; and November too, so we're almost there, buddy!
I made him a September calendar so he can count down the days. He loves it!
As you can see, I made a collage at the top of sunflowers, apples, golden wheat, and some other things you might find this late-summer-early-fall season. I used apple cutouts that were leftover from a name game we did last year. Rowan (and sometimes Fynn) gets to put up an apple each day.
I had Rowan help me make hanging golden sunflowers from cardboard and paper bags. He helped wrap strings around them and painted some of them.
