Autumn: The Season for Pumpkins, Corn Mazes and Falling Leaves

 Albert Camus once wrote, "Autumn is a second Spring, when every leaf is a flower." The vibrancy of the season conjures thoughts of pumpkins, spiced cider, boots with leggings and fireside chats with friends. It is the only time of year when we truly invite nature indoors and enjoy its bountiful harvest not just in produce, but also with its jeweled leaves, feisty cones and the like. Simply put, Autumn is my favorite time of year.

Over the next weeks, I'm going to begin our Autumn celebration through cooking, crafting, décor and more. Like Spring, I also prep for the coming Holiday season with a deep Fall cleaning.

Here's a past craft for toddlers and preschoolers I created for Dandelion Moms last Fall. I hope you have fun with this adorable owl handprint art! Please click on the photo to be redirected to the instructions.

I also wanted to share with all of you a cute Fall bucket list I found on Pinterest over the weekend! You definitely want to check off as many of these activities as possible!
Another family Fall favorite happens to be corn mazes! When our boys were younger, we had the opportunity to spend a season in Illinois and Wisconsin. The turning foliage was amazing, but it is the corn maze that still lingers in their memories best.

Please click on this link to visit a listing for corn mazes around the State of Texas! In addition, the Texas State Rail Road offers a corn maze in East Texas.Which ones has your family visited?
