On Monday morning, I had to break the news to Miles. “Sorry buddy, no school today. It’s Fall Break!” He sighed and looked confused. “I don’t like Fall Break. I want to go to school…How many more sleeps ’til I go back to school?”
He had a nice day at home with his brother and Daddy while I was at the ABC Kids Expo on Monday but we’ve been total lazy slugs for the rest of the week! Oops. I’m not going to lie. Sometimes I think about all the cute activities I should be doing with my boys and think “I just don’t wannnnnnnnaaaaaa!”
Time to get my butt in gear and start doing some of the fun things I’ve been planning to do this fall!
My “Fall in Love with Fall” Pinterest board is one of my favorite boards and it’s full of links to blog posts with dozens of ideas for fall activities with kids. Here’s some “link love” for the ones I want to do most:
- Make Homemade Apple Chips from Daydream Kitchen
- L is for Leaf craft from I Can Teach My Child
- Leaf Bracelets from I Can Teach My Child
- and of course carving our pumpkins (Stay tuned for how our new MessMatz helped keep the mess to a minimum this year!)
Do your kids get a week-long Fall Break like ours? How do you fill your days?
