Appreciate the beauties of it. And help them understand that these beauties are just an added bonus to the reality of the fact that without the earth and the changing of the seasons we would be nothing. There would be no food, no heat to keep us warm, not even any technology for them to play with!
Wrap up whatever the weather and go out and look for these glories of the season. Keep them in touch with the earth – that way they’ll care about it. An essential part of educating them.
And when you get back tune into Autumnwatch on the BBC, if you haven’t already seen it, to get a wider and wonderful picture.
