Cute Crafts for Fall!

Summer style guide

I’ve been feeling a need to slow down a bit lately. The beginning of the school year brings lots of excitement and getting used to new schedules and routines. My husband and I have also been running in different directions and we’ve had tons of things going on with our family and friends lately. I’m looking forward to a week where we can stop and catch our breath. Where the weather is clear and crisp, we can drink some hot coffee while it’s still hot, maybe go to a pumpkin patch, and I would really love to sit with my 5 year-old and do a fall craft. I’ve rounded up a couple cute ones for you- some for kids and some for us crafty adults. Scroll to the bottom for a free Fall Word Search for your kiddos too from Education.com!
