" There are in the initial autumn
A short but wonderful time -
All day is like a crystal
And radiant evenings ... "
Today we invite you for a walk!
Are there any people who want to take a walk and leaf in the leaves on a sunny autumn day?
Walks in the autumn forest or park are particularly delightful. Fallen leaves are rustling underfoot, birds are concentrating on the preparation of a winter dwelling, fresh (sometimes already frosty) air adds mood and freshness of thought .. I want to breathe deeply and capture those moments for the whole long and harsh winter ... right up to spring, when the birds chirp , and the exciting spring breeze will bring us the first sounds of awakening nature!
With the arrival of autumn, everyone gathers in the city, and we all miss the wildlife around us. It is great if you have the opportunity to go out of town or take long walks through the autumn forest. But staying in the city you can visit many interesting places and learn a lot of new things!
And behind the window the last days of Indian summer! So warm, and extremely long ...
Remember the folk wisdom?
- The young "Indian summer" begins, and the sun falls asleep.
- On the day of the beginning of the "Indian summer", according to custom, it was necessary to put a young man on a horse and go hunting with him.
Well, we will not go on the hunt :), but you can put a boy on a horse, or just ride ... Fortunately, parks and entertainment areas in the open air allow it.
On the territory of the Zoo there is a mini-Zoo, as well as manychildren's amusement areas- for the little ones, with children's attractions, and even for dinosaur lovers! Address of the Kiev State Zoological Park

Somewhere in the branches of trees, a high clear sky is lost, the wind is playing with gold of fallen leaves, the sun's rays are still cooling down in the middle layers of the atmosphere, recalling the approaching cold. Silence. There is no one near you, except for your own thoughts, and even those are lazily asleep somewhere in the depths of the subconscious ...
What could be more beautiful than walking in the autumn park! And what a smell! Just imagine - a cool morning, turning into a warm day .... It does not matter if even drizzle drizzle, because it is a mushroom! Imagine, as you walk through the autumn forest with a basket. There is such beauty around and not necessarily mushrooms! With a child you can collect chestnuts, acorns, pebbles ...
Returning from the park, we feel an invigorating surge of strength and energy. And not by chance. The smell of dry foliage is healing. Dried out plants emit substances with a powerful healing effect. Perhaps, the knowledge of their properties will help you to "pick up" a bouquet for the house.For example, dry oak branches emit substances that greatly reduce blood pressure and relieve the accompanying headache, dizziness, excessive heartbeat. If in your bedroom there will be an oak bouquet of 3-4 branches, you can cope with insomnia and irritability. Moreover, the drier the branches, the greater the effect they give!

Especially karapuzov, who still not quite confidently go. The patrons of the city promise to open such sites at Okhmatdit and on the territory of a children's clinic on ul. Kopylovsky, 1/7
Kids lovers of rollerblading and biking will enjoy riding the comfortable paths of our parks. And for those who love to play, offer autumn games that are easy to spend right in the open air!
Game that develops fantasy - "Clouds"
Clouds are white-maned horses ... Yes, yes, this is about our game! First, find out from your child if he knows what the clouds are, where they come from? Now offer to look at the sky and observe how white, fluffy clouds "fly and float". Watch together the clouds in the sky all the time changing shape, moving. You can invent a whole story with your heroes. This game develops wonderfully imagination and fantasy!
The leaves are flying!
It is called
Collect together with your baby leaves of different trees, be sure to name the tree from which you take the leaf.The task of the baby is to find a tree in the park, comparing the collected leaves with those that are still on the trees, and remember what it is called. You can slightly complicate the game by adding cones, nuts, acorns.
Golden leaves falling on the alleys of parks! Red, yellow, green, brown, brown, dark and light, with specks and without them, with cloves and round, large and small leaves rustle under the feet. Oh, what a beauty! It is a pity, but these beauties will soon fade and soak under the rains of cold November. But we will not be sad, right?
On the street you can compare a maple leaf with a palm, and at home to draw it, putting your palm and outlining its outline. Paint the future leaf with yellow paint and the maple leaf is ready!
On a walk, remember with the baby, what birds live in the city, what they eat? Tell him that in the autumn and winter, birds can find it difficult to find food, so you can make a feeder for them.
Or maybe you did it last winter? Then it's time to get it! Or cut a new one out of a cardboard box, from a milk package, a juice package ...
In the park for a walk, you can already take bread crumbs, groats and feed the birds ... And with the onset of cold weather, hang the feeders and do not forget themreplenish every day! Let this be one of the first lessons that cultivate the love of nature. Putting food on the birds, see who flies to your "canteen". Let the child try to name the birds himself. ...
Very wet grass
Puddles on the knee,
Bubbles and foam.
Oh, what a wonderful wordPUDDLE! And how happy mothers !!!! What about children!
It is clear that it is useless to not let a child into a puddle :), he will still be there faster than he will be caught .... Therefore, in advance, stock up with rubber boots and waterproof raincoats. Allowing the child to play enough in the puddles for a walk, one can hope that he will not get into the water, going to visit new shoes.
Puddle Games- this is a normal manifestation of children's cognitive activity, so why deprive the child of this pleasure? Let's play?
We offer young meteorological physicists to measure pools!
We select suitable several pools, it is desirable that they were of different sizes ... and we begin to walk along, counting the number of steps. Then we compare them :) and choose the largest one, on which you can already walk :).
Then we measure the depth of the puddles! We are looking for a good big stick (and suddenly a puddle is so deep that it will not save a boot?) And “tychem” to the farthest part of the puddle. By eye we pretend - deeply or not, and walk in the boots in the center! Delight? :)
If you have the same democratic girlfriends with small children, arrange competitions - who will have more splashes! Squeal and pleasure of the whole children's company and laundry for the mother are guaranteed :)!
Is it raining and you don't want to go out? You can just go down on the porch and talk about the rain. What is it like? Why is the autumn rain so gray and boring? What is thunder, lightning? And what is mushroom rain (mushrooms), drizzling (small as dew), rain (pouring, like a bucket)?
Breathe fresh air? And now home - to paint the rain with paints !!!! Believe me, even in the picture you can depict it different!
We will bring a piece of autumn to our house and make bouquets, handicrafts, ikebana, postcards, herbarium, which will remind us every day about the charming golden time and time spent together with the whole family!
And in the long rainy evenings we will paint pictures about autumn, make pictures of leaf prints,solve crosswords and riddles, learn poems about autumn, answer an infinite number of autumn children's questions: Why is it raining, and How does it appear? Who are migratory birds? and why is there fog?
Collecting autumn leaves, the child will remember the names of the trees and how they look.
From dried leaves you get a great herbarium! And if you look at the encyclopedia of plants and sign the leaves with Latin names, you will have your own mini-encyclopedia, which you can always touch and examine.
It will always be very interesting for a child to read such a vegetable book made with his own hands, along with his mom or dad, grandfather or grandmother!
I want wood beads
I give my mother.
They are not for sale,
They need to make ...
Remember the words of the children's song on the words of M. Sadovsky?
On an autumn walk, collect the berries of mountain ash, dog rose, acorns and chestnuts, sticks and twigs with your child ... .. From these components you can easily make wonderful decorations for your home and garden school!
Any teacher or teacher will be pleased with the autumn bouquet, which can be collected in a wicker basket, pots, or just a vase.Autumn flower arrangements, beautiful cards and panels will enliven any room and add sunny smiles to the lessons and lessons :) of your children.
Girls will like making beads and bracelets. It is enough to make holes in the berries and acorns, and strung them on threads. This is a great gift for mom, teacher, nanny or teacher!
And for the autumn fairy tale, make fairy-tale heroes who will invite your fidget into the game. Prickly chestnuts use for hedgehogs, and acorns for fabulous men. How interesting it is to play with those toys that the kid made himself!
October and November
Every beast in its hole
Sleeps sweetly and dreams
Waiting for Spring.
Does the child collect stones for a walk?
Suggest your child to turn the collected stones into amusing little animals. For this you need to wash them well with soap and dry. Spread the finds on the table and fantasize together which stone is suitable for which animal. For example, from a variety of small pebbles you can make a caterpillar, from a smooth round stone a bear, tiger or pig face, and from an oval, ladybug.
In the joint work - the main desire! Fantasy itself will tell you new ideas! And if you dry more autumn materials, then on cold winter evenings you will not be bored with your child!

Among them are memorial furniture and things, books of the private library of Mikhail Sergeyevich, dishes, etc. And the house itself, which the Grushevsky family acquired in July 1908 along with the estate for the father’s money left in inheritance, is a reminder of history, culture and architecture.

Museum of Russian Art
I intend to pay special attention to the landscape classics - individual exhibition projects will be dedicated to Ivan Aivazovsky and Ivan Shishkin.
Kiev Museum of Russian Art all year will be preparing for the next anniversary - in November 2007, the museum will be 85 years old. During the anniversary year, there will be several exhibitions from the collections of regional art galleries. One of the most painful questions for the museum is where and how to place a collection representing the art of the twentieth century, this year is also unlikely to be resolved.Since there is no place for works of this period in the permanent exhibition, it will continue to be shown only at temporary exhibitions. The next promise is to open in the coming months - the works stored in the vaults of the 1920s and 1950s will be combined into an exhibition, which is still in the museum’s plans under the working title “The Art of a Totalitarian Era”. By the way, it may well be that one of the main canvases representing the totalitarian epoch is the textbook “Everything is higher!” Seraphim Ryangina - visitors will not see the exhibition. This picture, according to the museum staff, curators of prestigious European exhibitions are increasingly dreaming to get for their projects.
