We Play... with Leaves

Hunter and friend he met at a campground, making "leaf soup".

Which later turned into autumn-in-the-summer time leaf pile jumping.

Followed by accompanying sticks which became swords, then guns.

And a later adventures in the "jungle" getting the "bad guys" (or "lions", which apparently live in jungles).

"For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green..." 
Jeremiah 17:8

We Play

Hunter is 5 years, 5 months old


  1. isn't it wonderful how one thing - such as leaves - becomes so many things in play. Nature is such a great playroom!

  2. I know, kids are so endlessly creative, I love seeing their imagination take off with such simple things. Especially in nature. :)

  3. Isn't it funny how games take on a life of their own an change so amazingly? :)

  4. Nature is so amazing and provides far more interesting things for our children to play with than we could ever get at a the shops :)
