Continuing on with the fall theme, I decided to move away from animals to plant life. Birds (and other migrating creatures) had some appeal, but it was limited. There was no immersive experience to be had with the birds and similar, because there was simply no way to taste, touch, listen to and/or smell them. My son is very hands on, so we needed something that he could really experience on a up close and personal level. Apples (and trees by extension) seemed like a great fit. We basically segued from one theme to another under the premise that plants also undergo changes during the fall season. Fruits come into fruition. Harvest occurs. The plants power down, and then a dormant phase ensues much like migration in animals. Sounded plausible!
