Decorating for Fall – Kids Can Help!

Package From Santa, Pumpkin Centerpiece

Whether your idea of fall decorations is pumpkins and scarecrows or you prefer a porch or walkway lined with beautiful fall flowers, decorating for fall is something the whole family can get involved in.

This is especially true if you go with simple themes.

Pumpkins are basic – they are almost considered ‘necessary’ elements in any fall decoration. You can get very creative and carve elaborate designs into the pumpkins, or you can draw on them to create faces, or you can simply add them to a collection of other fall-themed items in a way that allows you enjoy their natural beauty and elegance.

For interest, you can gather a collection of fall-related items. For instance, besides pumpkins you might want to include various gourds, potted fall flowers, such as mums, sneezeweed, and sunflowers, and even a candle or two. Depending on the size of your collection, you may want to display it in front of your house, on the porch or deck, or if it is smaller, you may choose to add it to a table top.
