Well this weekend ended up being a bit of a let down. I had planned out a trip to the pumpkin patch but it rained on Friday then again on Saturday, Sunday and it is still raining right now.
Doesn’t the weather realize we have a fall bucket list to work on.
Since we couldn’t do most of the things we have left on our list we decided to make the best of being stuck at home and do some indoor Halloween/ Fall activities
First we headed outside, thanks to our big front porch, to read a book. We chose our favorite Halloween book: This Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid Of Anything.
We have made this an interactive book thanks to some free printables from toddler approved.
Next up we did a little baking.
If there is one thing that we have been doing PLENTY of it is fall baking
From Easy Pumpkin Bread, Creamy Apple Squares, Pumpkin Bagels, Pumpkin Sugar Cookies With Maple Frosting, Pumpkin Pancakes, Pumpkin Waffles and Pumpkin Muffies and maybe a few more. All of these recipes are fantastic.
The husband keeps asking me what else I am going to try and add pumpkin to. I just can’t help myself, sorry dear.
I have been saving these miniature pie tins for a while now the girls were so excited to get a chance to “make” their own crusts. They quickly discovered it wasn’t as easy as they thought it would be. But, with a little teamwork we had the crusts ready in no time.
Pumpkin wins again.
With our pies baking in the oven we worked on a quick craft, hand print spiders.
And then we watched one of our favorite Halloween movies.
It may not have been the weekend that I planned on or the fall activities that I hoped for by but we made the best of it and had fun.
Let’s just hope that the rain holds off next weekend, I have some exciting things planned that I don’t want to miss.
