Celebrate Fall

Pic 1


I traveled to central NY this last week to visit my father and some other family members. It was a beautiful week – central NY at its finest with blue skies, changing leaves, and cool weather.

I found myself reminiscing about all the things we had done with our kids when they were young: hayrides, carving pumpkins, fall festivals, Halloween costumes, playing in the leaves, etc.

Here’s my sister Lauren demonstrating some of that fun! The thing on the end of her nose is commonly referred to as a “helicopter seed” from a maple tree. If you split open the seed end, there is enough sticky material to attach it to your nose!

Then, there is the smells and tastes of fall: pumpkin, apple, cinnamon, nutmeg, and so on. Who can resist a tall glass of cold cider (or a cup of coffee on those cooler days!) and a fresh doughnut? Yum!



What do you do to celebrate fall? How do you incorporate the sights, smells, tastes, and sounds of fall into your curriculum? Do you have a favorite craft, activity, or field trip? I would love to have you share it below. Check in later this week or sign up for my email update list and I will be adding some fall ideas to TeachingNook.com.

Now, get off your computer and go step outside, even if it’s just for a moment. This is the day the Lord has made. Celebrate it!

    My girls and I love to visit farms this time of year. We look for corn mazes, fall festivals, and just try to have fun. I recently found a recipe for baked pumpkin doughnuts. I think we will try our hands at baking those.
