First Day of Autumn

Today is the first day of Autumn. Here in the Midwest some of the trees have been dropping their leaves. Others, like the dogwood outside my window, are beginning to change colors. The local grocery stores are displaying potted mums in full bloom.


I know it doesn’t look like Autumn everywhere but that doesn’t mean you can’t start enjoying the season. Red, gold, and orange colors dominate the crafts and other decorations for the home. You can have your own home get the Autumn feeling by making some easy decorations. Here are some links with lots of ideas for you and your children. Many use items you are ready have or can be found in nature. Have fun.
