I love any reason to have a celebration! Birthday? Check. Holidays? Check. Family over, lived another day,season change, school starting or ending..you get the idea. 🙂
I don’t do a lot, but just something to mark the day and to have a little fun!
Well, have a little fun and a reason to use this cute little tablecloth for fall! 🙂 I just love these forest creatures theme that has come out. I printed off some images that kinda match and used them for the banner and on some picks that I added on the (store bought) caramel apples. 🙂
Also, I used to buy (and sometimes still do for ordinary movie nights) store popcorn bags. You know the ones, with the red and white stripes. One day I was out. And I had white paper bags and thought, well, I’ll just cut them up a little and add some stickers to go with the theme of my party, and voila! I’ve done it almost ever since now because I love to match anything to my themes!!
I let the add candy to their popcorn sometimes, or they can leave it in the little single serving containers I give them (from the dollar store).
Pull out last year’s movie, give them a new sticker/activity book, and do some crafts and you’ve got yourself a family celebration! 🙂
We also had a small get together with friends to welcome fall! Unfortunately, it was way too windy to set up everything I had taken to decorate and “cutesy” up, but we still got to have a lot of fun!
First, we went on a short hike with a fall scavenger hunt…
I printed off a cute fall scavenger hunt page for all the little ones. It had words and pictures for those who couldn’t read yet. 🙂
The trail on the short hike leads out to the river and the little ones all ran and played for a while in the sand.
Got a quick photo of (almost) all the little ones before we did some more fun stuff…
I made cupcakes and used store bought icing for a quick treat. The little ones put on their icing and sprinkles, and then I read a book, “Let It Fall.” It’s an adorable book!
Last, we made some bird feeders out of toilet paper rolls. Yes, I had lots! I saved them just for this, lol.
I think they had fun…I know I did! I look forward to this every year. 🙂
Here is a link for the fall scavenger hunt printable I used (and it’s not mine)…
Happy hunting. 🙂
