I’ve mentioned before how much I love fall! It may be my favorite season!(My condolences to those of you living in less seasonal areas. Though you can remind me how nice 70 degrees feels when I’m buried in snow for three months.) I’ve linked before to some of my favorite fall activities, but I’ve come across some new favorites over the last little while, and wanted to share them all here!
Part of what makes fall so magical is that you know it won’t last forever! This article at Life as Mom reminds us to take advantage of those fabulous fall traditions before it’s too late!
Getting outside is really what fall is about! You have to experience it! I wrote a post a while back about getting kids in nature, which you could read here. Vanessa Brown recently put together a great one on the need for unstructured playtime in nature for Simple Kids here. We both mention Richard Louv’s book, Last Child in the Woods - a must read! And while you’re out and about, collect treasures for a great fall nature mobile like this one from Made by Joel.
Even if you’re surrounded by palm trees, you can still enjoy the traditional fall color with this vibrant Autumn Window Display, or this falling leaves craft from No Time for Flashcards. And if you’re feeling extra crafty, try these cool fall fairies with Pink and Green Mama. (While you’re there, check out her Halloween craft ideas too!)
Well, that should keep us both busy for a while! Enjoy your weekend!
