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!

This excitement and build-up of Trunk-or-Treat has definitely spurred some enthusiasm and competition in our family and friends that makes us think long and hard about what our family will be for Halloween.

She’s going to move-in and be a part of our family whether we like her or not.
