Fall Theme Week

We took our time with our fall theme week (it was more like two weeks!), spending lots of time on crafts and enjoying time in the great outdoors! I love the fall and I think the kids had just as much fun as I did with all of our fall inspired activities.

We checked out some fall themed books from our local library. Timmy and Vera’s favorite by far was We’re Going On A Leaf Hunt by Steven Metzger. It is such a fun book and it inspired a leaf hunt of our own (a later blog post)!

We spent an entire morning at a local farm and pumpkin patch, soaking up what’s left of the beautiful fall weather in the Pacific Northwest. The kids had a wonderful time and each picked out a ‘perfect pumpkin’.

I printed and laminated some playdough mats for Timmy to practice forming his numbers. He made ‘apples’ to put on the apple trees. You can find the free printables here.

We used food coloring and droppers to paint leaves. You can read all about in this post.

Painting a fall tree with a dish brush was fun!

The kids used apples as stamps to make the ‘leaves’ of their trees. They both enjoyed painting with apples!

I cut out the different parts of a scarecrow from construction paper and Timmy used a glue stick to put him together.

We made pumpkin bread and crockpot apple cider one afternoon. The whole house smelled like fall!
