I love living in San Diego, but I do feel nostalgic for swaths of brilliant fall colors. With all the amazing leaf resources, though, it’s possible to enjoy leaf activities in the fall and throughout the year wherever you live. Today, I want to share a variety of Montessori-inspired leaf resources. Many are for any time of year or can be adapted for any climate.
