Fall Fun


Don't you just love this time of year, when the cooler weather brings a changing of the leaves and a lot less sweat?

Here is a DIY kid-made fall centerpiece [2] we did one year that was a lot of fun.


This year, I think I will try it with pumpkins and tissue paper. I loved the gold spray painted acorns, and even put them in a big vase and kept them on my dining room table for weeks!

Be sure to see my list of 7 kid friendly fall crafts [3]. I can't be the only one who lets my kids make the decorations, can I???

For more fall fun, our family is looking forward to attending a "Harvest Festival" with our homeschool group! There will even be prizes awarded to the best "Biblical costume".

I'm guessing all manner of animals, angels, and even cracked rocks are eligible for a Biblical costume, right?

So... if you had a 15 year old son who was planning to go as King Eglon [4], how would you go about making a costume with a sword sticking out of a fat belly? WHAT?! It's in there, people!

Also, I would love any awesome ideas you have for Biblical costumes. We may or may not know a certain family who is very competitive and is planning on sweeping every age category.
