Gratitude Tree for Thanksgiving; would be neat to do for a Sunday School class and have the kids write on their leaves what they are thankful for and place them on the tree. can do this every week during the fall season til the tree is full.
We do this! Each day of December we have an activity to do. Essentially it's an advent calendar but we don't call it that. I put each little card in a miniature stocking. The stockings are hung along our bannister. The kids get to pull out the card each day. Most are things we do anyway, but it's a fun way to organize our holiday season.
Point out spooky attractions near and far with a homemade sign post hung up on a tree. Other potential destinations to point out to your trick-or-treaters? Amityville, Elm Street and Frankenstein's Castle. Click through for more on this and other outdoor Halloween decorations.
