L is for Leaf {Preschool Homeschool}

I sure do love Fall!  The football games, the cooler weather… the perfect excuse to eat donuts with cider (every day!) Here in Erie, PA, it seems we only get about 3 weeks of fall before the snow starts to fall, so you've really got to seize the day! We decided to kick off the fall season with some nice leaf crowns.  We all headed outside to look for beautiful leaves, but when we got out there — we only had green ones!  Oops!  Guess the weather hasn’t been quite cold enough around here … [Read more...]

Day 17: God Made Autumn {31 Days of Bible Crafts}

Day 17: God Made Autumn {31 Days of Bible Crafts}

Today, we're going to stray a little bit from Bible stories and focus on how God made everything, including the four seasons.  We read a really simple book called God Provides For Me. It details a conversation between a baby bear and his mother and how God provides for them in every season.  It's very short and sweet, but I think it sends a great message to little ones about the order and plan God exhibits over the earth. So, to celebrate the season we are now in the midst of, we decided … [Read more...]

Harvest Decorations

Harvest Decorations

We share our church building with a Ukranian congregation.  They decided to hold a fall festival this year at the church and I absolutely loved their decorations so I decided to post the pictures for you to admire as well!  It's so nice that these decorations get twice the mileage!  The little wagon and picket fence are on our sanctuary stage, so it provides such a nice first impression!

Story Time: Leaves

Story Time: Leaves

This summer, we ran a Story Time in the Park program at a local park here in Erie, PA.   The program was a huge success and we had a lot of fun participating in it.  I tried to highlight most of our weeks during the summer, but a few slipped through the cracks.  One of those was Leaf Day, and I thought this season would be a perfect time to share it! This was an interesting story time because we had two books picked out, and our story reader had taken them home to practice.  She ended up … [Read more...]
