A little fall craftiness

Self-admittedly, I am not the most creative person, especially when it comes to doing things with the kids. I guess the thought of the mess that will be made keeps me from even breaking supplies out to do things with them. I know, I's pathetic. Well, the other day, I guess I was needing to feel like a good mom or something because we actually did a few things!! The kids and I decided to get a little into the fall spirit. We went and bought a few pumpkins and covered them with "stained glass" aka tissue paper. Unfortunately, there was a limited selection of tissue paper colors at the store, so the pumpkins ended up looking a little ummm....patriotic I guess. With the upcoming election though, I guess it actually worked out ok. They had fun nonetheless, so....who cares there are red, white and blue pumpkins in my dining room?? :) Here are a few pics....

Then, we made Halloween cookies (place and bake....not homemade. I wasn't that on the ball!) and enjoyed them followed by a little snuggle time on the couch. It was great now that the weather is finally feeling like fall!

We went to the pumpkin patch with Jonah's preschool class today. I'll try to post some pics soon!

  1. I've never seen pumpkins done like that - they're cute!

    And I like the last pic of the kids on the couch with the VT blanket. :)
