My almost 7 year old granddaughter, Abby was spending time at my house and we found a ripe pumpkin in my small pumpkin patch so she decided to paint a face on it. When she was done we knew something was missing. I grabbed an old cap of Uncle Kerry's and we put it on the pumpkin's head and "Jack" came to life!


It is so much fun to do creative things
with the kids or grandkids.

Some ideas for the fall are:
1. Going on a nature hike and collecting leaves, rocks, nuts, etc.
2. Having leaves, small sticks and other items on hand for the children to glue onto construction paper as a collage.
3. Baking cookies in the shape of leaves or pumpkins and decorate.
4. Reading books together by the fire with hot chocolate (in a spill-proof cup, of course)
5. Raking a pile of leaves and jumping into it. (You will have to keep raking over and over again, but it's worth it :)
