It's October! The air is crisp, the trees are starting to turn, and there's candy everywhere! Yay!
But seriously, it can be hard to instill a sense of the season for our young kids that will go beyond the free sugar-rush and flimsy, store-bought costumes. This time of year can make it tough to fight the glut of outside influences as Halloween gives way to Thanksgiving and then we're right into Christmas. Little things can do wonders, though, like spending an afternoon making simple crafts with the little ones. Without spending a fortune, you can build memories with your children that will keep them grounded in the wholesome, family-focused core of the season. Plus, the results are super cute!
