Fall is a favorite time of the year for many people. We see God’s handiwork in the changing of the leaves and the relief of cooler weather after a warm summer. We get to decorate with pretty wreaths and fun pumpkins. We can pick up our favorite fall flavors at the coffee shops and put on a pot of soup to enjoy with our family. These are just a few of the reasons that many of us enjoy the beautiful season of fall.
My family likes to do many things during the fall. Here’s a list of some of our favorite fun things to do. Each of these are a perfect opportunity to talk about God’s glory displayed in the changing seasons.
1. Go apple picking. We have an almost local orchard that we can drive to in about 45 minutes. We don’t even usually pick the apples. We just go for the fun of walking through the orchard and seeing the different kinds of apples. We take a picnic lunch and have lots of fun just enjoying the beauty of creation.
2. Painting mini-pumpkins. This is something my 7-year-old has been doing for a couple of years and loves! I buy a couple of the mini pumpkins at the grocery for him and give him a paintbrush and some paint. He can then paint whatever he wants on the pumpkins. They then become fall décor!
