A Rainbow of Leaves. - The Magic Onions

A Rainbow of Leaves.

Aren’t the leaves just amazing in Fall? They are ablaze! A way to bring a child into connectedness with nature is to help her become aware of the changing of the seasons… to show her that nature is an ever-changing cycle that always comes back to the beginning. It gives a child confidence to know that things can change but still stay the same, like her changing body… she is growing, getting taller, loosing her teeth but she is still the same inside.
K and I made it our Fall challenge today to find all the colors of the rainbow in leaves. We set out in search of fallen leaves, a bit skeptical that we could succeed.
Here is RED.




On our walk, I asked her what color a leaf is. She immediately answered… ‘Green!’ Then she thought for a moment and changed her answer to… ‘all the colors of the rainbow!’
Blessings and magic.
