Autumn brings the beginning of the holidays. During the holidays I try to slow down at home. The world gets so busy and so chaotic during holiday time, and a parent can get lost in it all. So I try to sit back and take moments to enjoy the holidays a little. How do I do this? I choose special moments of the day to be with my family. I set aside special meals, movies, activities, or crafts for us to do together for us to soak in as much “together” time as we can in the midst of the busiest seasons.
This month I found these sweet little clay pumpkin keepsake crafts to do with my kids. My kids love a good clay craft, really they love anything that lets them play with things sticky, and messy. This simple craft was created by Nadia at Teach Me Mommy. I really loved her take on the clay handprint because it not only gave you a handprint but she also found a way to incorporate a photo.
For the full tutorial including amazing photos head on over to Teach Me Mommy now. The great thing about this sweet keepsake is that it can double as fall or Halloween decor and can be brought out every year. So in a few years, you can look back at how young and precious your kids were, and remember that sweet day you worked together to create such a fantastic memory.
I am planning to enjoy this sweet keepsake all autumn long, and I hope you will too!
