Fall Is In The Air!
Fall is definitely in the air. I made my first pumpkin pie yesterday. The air smelled good! This weekend we are planning to go the pumpkin patch. It is like taking the kids for the first time, since most of them don't remember going before we left for Oki. Also bought my first mums of the season. I love the color of fall mums. They are beautiful. I think we will make some fall cookies too.
The kids are going to be doing a Pumpkin Unit Study this week. It will probably go until the end of October. I found this great website where you can purchase Unit studies to download and print the pages you need. It has a Great Pumpkin Mega Fun Book.
It is a fun way to learn about pumpkins. I hope next year that we are able to grow our own pumpkins.
I am planning some fall activities for school. We are going to collect acorns and make picture frames out of them. We are also going to go collect the beautiful fall leaves and make collages. And make fall thankfulness posters. They are really great fun to make and something that the kids can use to decorate their rooms for fall. The picture frames would also make great gifts to send out.
Some good Bible Verses for Fall Thanksgiving Posters:
Oh, give thanks to the Lord!
Call upon His name;
Make known His deeds among the peoples!
1 Chronicles 16:34
Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!
For His mercy endures forever.[a]
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
And into His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
I plan to post some pictures of our crafts when they are finished. I'd love to hear what fall school activities you are doing in your homeschool. I am hoping to host a homeschool linkup next week. Still have to figure out how to do it, but hopefully it will be up and running by then. It will be a linkup share all of our great homeschool ideas and share what we are learning about. So tell all your homeschool friends to stop by next week. :)
