Summer is officially over, and the little ones are back to school. And while we might be missing those hot and hazy days of summer, the fall can be a beautiful season full of fun family events. With Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas just around the corner, the fall season is a wonderful time for families to come together and enjoy time together. Fall is also a great decorating season! With so many colors, feelings, and moods evoked by fall, there’s tons of fun seasonal design elements you can incorporate into your home to get into that cozy fall season. And of course, getting the kids involved is just another way to make fall a great time for family. In this post, we’ll give you some cute fall decor tips that both you and your kids will love.
IT’S ALL ABOUT THE LEAVES
Perhaps nothing says fall more clearly than the changing of the leaves. As vibrant greens begin to shift into reds, oranges, and yellows, you can really start to feel the fall coming. And as the leaves fall, tons of fun craft and decor ideas come to life! How about helping your kids with a great leafy craft, like artwork that incorporates something right from your own backyard? Helping your kids make something unique using leaves will also help teach the younger ones about the changing seasons and the natural world. Just be careful that those crunchy leaves don’t make too much mess!
HARVEST SEASON FUN
Fall is the traditional harvest season, and a great chance to create some harvest-themed crafts with your kids. Apples and pumpkins are both classic fall foods, and can be used in many ways. If you like baking, there are tons of apple and pumpkin goods you and your kids can work together to create. There’s also loads of decor ideas featuring fall harvest themes, like pumpkin seed collages, acorn art and crafts, and paintings featuring harvest themes. This is also a great educational opportunity to teach kids the value of hard work and patience. Fall is a time when work from the past yields benefits for the future. This is a wonderful message to kids about planning for the future.
While kids might love Halloween and Thanksgiving, the fall season brings another thing they might not love so much: homework! As parents, we can work with our kids to make a positive homework environment for them. As you spruce up the kids’ rooms for fall, make sure they’ve got a good place to work, including a good desk, chair, and bookshelf. You can also dedicate some space in your home to feature great work your kids have done in the past. Get that fridge magnet collection back to work and let kids pin their best test scores for the year, for example. Being positive and organized about school and work will help your kids achieve their best potential in this coming school year.
We hope these simple fall decor for kids ideas will make this fall season your best ever! It’s an exciting time of the year, and we hope your kids are off to a great school year as well. Happy Fall!
