Fall Craft Class

How do you repair a broken pumpkin?
Buy a pumpkin patch!

What did baby corn say to mommy corn?
Where's popcorn?

How do you keep a turkey in suspense?
I’ll let you know next week!

That’s a little taste of today’s crafty theme, “Fall Fun!” Students got an ear full of these jokes while decorating foam doorknob hangers, large leaves, and orange lunch bags (to carry everything) with an assortment of foam stickers and google eyes. At the end of class I handed out three kinds of candy and a printed sheet of the jokes to take home.

It was a great class, but students were unusually antsy by the end, a few asking to leave 5 or 10 minutes early! (While we were still cleaning up . . . Hmmm . . .) I wonder if it was excitement over the approaching holiday? I noticed more frazzled moms, too. Perhaps it’s just a very busy time of year for lots of us! (Certainly is for us!)

Hello Farrah,

Sounded like an extraordinary fun class. But the fun was over when it came time to clean-up :).

I think the cool weather makes a lot of people antsy. The chill in the air gets the ol blood pumpin. When fall is in the air excitement comes to life in many, especially with the youngins which can indeed frazzle the moms.

Blessings to you Farrah!

Fall has to be my favorite time of year:) I really enjoy it up north. We live in the south and only get to see the seasons change when we go up north:) It sounds like your class had a great time making the crafts!!!

LOL, luv the jokes. :)

Glad you like the layout! It was-- and is-- a work in progress, but we're enjoying it!

I was looking at the Chocolate Thunder... uh-oh... :) I think we may need to try that one! One can't refuse chocolate, especially at this time of year!

Thanx for the lovely posts & comments--

I know this is the time of the year when I begin to get antsy. I am in such a rush trying to get everything done. Of course, anytime that kids have to clean they get antsy!
Those jokes were cute!
