Celebrate Fall!

[1]

We don’t celebrate Halloween, but since my kids were noticing lots of parties going on for people who do, I decided to have a Celebrate Fall party [2].

We invited a few friends and planned to have it at the park. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect!

[3]

We started out by singing “This is the Day the Lord has Made” as we walked around a mat with some paper bags at the perimeter.

[4]

When the singing stopped, everyone got to look in the bag in front of them and found markers, glitter, a tiny pumpkin, and fall stickers.

We talked about ways God blesses us with special gifts that only come in the fall: cooler weather, beautiful leaves, pumpkins, pecans, etc.

Then, everyone decorated the bags with God’s fall blessings.

We had sack races with the younger set.

All in all, it was a perfect day and a perfect way to celebrate fall!
