The days are getting noticeably shorter, and the temperature is starting to drop, but there’s no need to stop having plenty of fun outside.
While we understand the temptation to curl up in front of the fire is all too real, getting outside over the winter months is still so crucial for both mental and physical health.
We love autumn here at Flo & Fawn.
The opportunities afforded by the abundance of rainbow leaves, seeds and nuts are immense whether you use them for play, craft or STEM activities.
The cooler temperatures make it easier to tackle some longer walks and outdoor play sessions without constant water breaks.
Best of all, once you have exhausted all the fun in the crisp, fresh air, you can curl up in front of that cosy fire with a good (nature) book!
