I’m going to share this with my daughter, a homeschooling mom of 4. Looks like fun fall learning projects! I also pinned it to my Activities for Kids board. Thanks!
Wonderful! Homeschool families are always looking for new and interesting things to learn.
I love this list! Fall is my favorite time of the year and I love these ideas for doing/learning new skills and ideas 🙂
I love reading and learning about the Natives! I am part Cherokee, after all. 🙂
You gave me some great ideas for things to do with my kiddos this fall — thanks!!
You’re welcome, Kristen! Enjoy your fall
Fall is such an awesome time to get outside with your family! Thanks so much for the great list.
Oh this is a good list! Thanks, I’m bookmarking this since we’re setting fall goals right now.
Great list! I definitely am still wanting to learn how to bake bread. Another goal of mine is volunteering.
Fantastic idea, volunteering!
Great list you got here Candy! I love the Fall season and it’s great you listed educational stuff about the season.
I didn’t know what to expect when I clicked on the link, but I am so glad that I did. What an awesome list! I love the variety of activities and can’t wait to tackle some of them. On my agenda is definitely learning some great seasonal recipes. But, as a relatively new homeowner, I definitely need to learn how to winterize my home inside and out!
