It is still 84 degrees out, and frankly it’s not feeling very much like fall around here. That means we have to make our own fall! After school we’ll be doing some fall process art activities inspired by some of our favorites around the web.
Gather up some natural materials like acorns and pinecones. Grab some pumpkins. Add in a bit of a paint and few odds and ends, and you can join in too!
