Things to do on a winter’s day

So it’s Autumn and the leaves are all over my car. It’s days like these that I bundle my daughter out of the house, wrapped in as many clothes as I can get her to wear and make a leaf wreath.

This is a trick I picked up on a trip to Russia; families go out with a piece of wire (a sacrificed coat hanger perhaps?) and thread leaves onto it.

This serves a triple purpose (possibly more). It amuses the little people for a while, encourages the leaves to stay on my car no longer and it makes something nice to hang on the door. Oh and people think you’re super talented!

Now when the rain stops, we might venture outside…..
