Family Fall Festival Fun

Fall Festival

Imagine a bright fall day where it is cool enough for a sweater but not a jacket. Everyone is anxious to be outside and enjoy the smells of fall. Kids are running around laughing while crunching through piles of brown, yellow and red leaves. This is the idyllic setting for a Fall Festival which is also known as a Family Fall Harvest.

When done in its entirety, the Family Fall Harvest is a community level event. However, any of the activities listed can be done by themselves for just an individual family or with a couple families getting together.

Family Movie Night

Family Movie Night

Movies create a sense of community. The experience of watching a movie at the same time allows us to share with others emotions such as laughter, joy, sadness, and a sense of victory when the underdog overcomes. The memories of those experiences provide a language that gets used throughout our lives together. In our everyday conversations, how many times do we repeat lines from movies or do we recall a scene? Movies also provide excellent opportunities to talk about relevant issues and topics that we might not otherwise discuss.

Garden Party

Garden Party

If you haven’t already gathered, we love to find a reason to be creative and have a Caper. What better reason than a Birthday celebration? Our eldest was to celebrate her 12th Birthday soon. Not wanting a simple party, she and I decided to host a mother-daughter party. Now I am no Gardener by any means, but I am invigorated and inspired by nature just the same. I am always gathering crafty ideas. After receiving my Better homes and Gardens I knew the theme of our party. They had an article on Fairy Gardens, how perfect! Now we had a reason to start planning!
