1. Making a Fall Centerpiece
Our year-round centerpiece is a vase with natural tree branches. For Easter, it becomes our “Easter Tree”. For fall, we decorate this tree with silk leaves and homemade clay decorations. Our entire family loves our clay making sessions, which we split into two weekends – one for making clay decorations, another is for painting them. We have made some fall and Christmas decorations last year and this year we plan to make more for our second tree in the living room.
2. Plant Fall Flowers
We live in Northern California, so fall is the planting season for us when we replace some of seasonal flowers and plant cool weather vegetable garden. It’s a perfect time for children to get involved in picking plants for the garden, planting them, and taking care of them.
3. Decorate Windows
4. Make a Fall Banner
This summer we introduced a new art project for entire family – a banner where each of us decorates two letters from the season word. We hang it above our eat-in kitchen that also doubles as a family room. This time all of us managed an initial draft and a final version, and I love how our letters turned out. You are welcome to guess which ones belong to our 7 year old :)
