Let's Decorate the Trees
by Sheryl Edwards
What a challenging time to have children! We spend most of our time at home thinking of ways to entertain ourselves. But after a while, we just have to get out and go somewhere. Last week, our family piled in the car to go look at Halloween decorations at Home Depot. We didn’t need anything or buy anything…we just went on a field trip, like one might go to a museum or arboretum. Desperate times call for desperate measures!
That little adventure gave me an idea for this month’s activity: let’s decorate the trees on our parkways for Halloween! Do just a little or go all out. Either way, it’s a novel experience that we can share as a community from a safe distance. Then, throughout the month of October, we can walk, ride, or drive around our neighborhood to look at the unique Halloween trees!
So get out those ladders (or come by and borrow mine) and get the whole family involved to create some neighborhood fun (and maybe even a little friendly competition)!
