Boots and Scarves and Pumpkins, Oh My!

Fall is such a wonderful time of year. The older kids are back in school, the weather finally gives us a break from the hot summer months, we get to pull out our boots and scarves, and Starbucks begins to bring back their holiday drinks (I think the last reason is probably best!). But one of my favorite things about the fall is the beautiful, earthy décor as well as the fun activities. And since Pinterest and Google can make any sane person’s mind spin, I have done all the searching for you and made a list of the best fall crafts and activities to make you want to curl up with that pumpkin spice latte and watch the leaves change.
