A great time of year is coming, Fall! What I love about fall is the cooler weather which we don’t get a lot of here in Texas. The absolute best thing about fall is pumpkin pie! Yummy. This year we will be making one from scratch; even the dough will be from scratch. It’s a great way to teach life skills like cooking, measurements for math skills and of course it makes great bonding time for the family.
Last year we made pumpkins with construction paper. You just cut strips of paper and glue the ends together in a circle, then glue the top ends of the paper together. You can cut leaves and a stem out to glue on as well. It was a lot of fun for our daughter and she took them all around the house for days.
Another thing I love about fall is all the decorations. Every year I crochet a set of pumpkins and cross stitch something fall or Halloween related. I’ve made a scarecrow, witch, Mr. Dracula, a fall theme set and a Halloween theme set as well. But for great family bonding time I suggest the classic carving of a pumpkin.
