Remember being a kid, and all the hours you could spend playing in the fall leaves? Jumping into them, raking them into houses and trails and mazes… Here’s another fun idea that kept the hooligans busy for a few days. We made roadways in the leaves, and they spent hours pushing their cars and trucks around and around the yard.
If you loved our leaf maze last week, you’ll love this! This was an even bigger hit with the Hooligans!
Hmmmm… Leaf Labyrinth, Leaf Maze and now Roadways in the leaves… I wonder how else we can use them before the season is over…Just an update: Our weather continued to be dry all week and we had very little wind. These roadways stayed in great shape all week, and the hooligans spent countless hours playing in them. Our roadways in the leaves provided a wonderful setting for imaginative play as the hooligans pretended they were rooms in a house, bunny trails, a race track and pathways in the forest.
