First Leaf Pile

Adrian has been eagerly waiting for enough leaves to fall so we could make a huge leaf pile.  Yesterday he asked if he could “break the leaves”. He got his rake out, so I knew what he wanted.

Today he got his wish!  It was not a huge pile, but large enough for the kids to all play in it.  They “invented” a new game.  One child is the guesser and stands between the cars.  Then the other three choose one to hide in the leaf pile.  One hides in the woods and the other child gets the guesser.  The guesser has to guess who is hiding in the leaves. Then they trade places.

When they finished their game, Adrian demolished the leaf pile so they could rake again another day.
