Fall is my favorite time of year. I love to get the family outdoors for a fall hike, to look at the leaves, for a photo shoot, to sit around the fire pit, etc. So, I have rounded up 10 of the best fall resources for Christian families that you are going to want to add to your own bucket list! Don’t have a fall bucket list? I have a free one for you to download too.
It is also my favorite season to decorate. The colors, deep red, orange, yellow, brown, and all of the pumpkins, wheat, and sunflowers make me smile. I probably get a little too crazy with it.
So, all of the following activities and ideas are approved by a crazy, fun, fall lovin’ Momma! I promise you will find something here that your family can use. And, if not, give me your ideas at the end in the comments.
