Sometimes the best Fall activities don’t require a tutorial or list of supplies. This Fall, get outside and do this festive activity–a dying art in my opinion!

I’ve got a confession. I’m a huge planner. Or maybe you already knew that. Sometimes it’s really hard for me to just drop my “to-do” lists and embrace the moment. Sure, all these ideas I’ve shared during this 31 Days of Halloween series are fun and great, but sometimes the best activities are those that don’t require a tutorial. Or a list of supplies.

Regardless of the activities and traditions you have chosen to make a part of your October, I hope that you’ll find the time to get outside and just play. Play in the leaves. Listen for the sound of the crunch beneath your soles. Stomp on acorns and other nuts that have fallen. (I love that sound!) Embrace the cool weather and relish in the beauty that Fall brings.

Because what I can say is this. This moment we had together playing in the leaves and watching them discover Fall has been one of my favorite memories this month. More than the crafts and recipes we’ve made. But, take it for what’s it worth. (And that isn’t to say that I’m going to stop sharing DIY and parties anytime soon. Moderation in all things, right?)

Go on a leaf hunt. Get dirty. Or just do whatever your little heart desires.  Just Enjoy Fall!

I’ve been LOVING your blog this month. My kids and I have done several of the fun things together.

But I’ve come to expect “the big plans” from you and I’ve read this post 3 times trying to figure out what the art project was…since it’s Halloween, I couldn’t figure out what the “dying” picture would look like. lol. So funny–I get it now…playing in the leaves is the “dying art”.

Thanks for the fun ideas, Melissa!
