How’s the weather in your area? It’s really feeling like fall here which makes me want to break out all the fall-scented candles, go hiking with the kids, and find an orchard nearby. Time to make applesauce!

Stay tuned for some fun pumpkin and fall themed calendar printables too! I’ll be sharing some in the next few days with you all, so warm up your laminators and get your scissors ready to do some cutting!

Here are a few ideas to Pin and file to use with your kids in the next bit.
