Pumpkin Spice Latte (Made with REAL Pumpkin!). Are you are team#PSL? If you love the seasonal drink but your wallet hates paying $5+ for one at the coffee shop, try making this one at home!

Favorite Fall Children’s Books. So many great books to curl up together and read on the cool, crisp fall nights. Or take a blanket outside to enjoy a beautiful fall day. These books will become a beloved fall tradition for you and your family.
DIY Simple Twine & Leaf Garland. It couldn’t be any simpler yet it makes such a beautiful fall decor staple. I made mine almost four years ago and we still use it every single year on our mantle. Pick up some felt leaves next time you are at the dollar store, or go out and gather some for free in the yard!

Best Ever Pumpkin Mac and Cheese. Who would have ever thought pumpkin would blend well into the savory dish of mac and cheese but boy does it! It’s savory, with a subtle sweetness. Perfect with a side of seasonal honey-glazed ham, or crumble up some bacon for a one-dish meal.
Preserving the Season Through Pressed Leaves. Such a simple DIY activity and decoration. I still have this exact leaf press hanging in my kitchen and four years later, the pressed leaves are still vibrant in color!
Easy and Yummy Pumpkin Butter. This is rich, creamy, and perfectly pumpkin-flavored if you love all things pumpkin. Spread this on an English muffin or toast, or dip some crackers in it to balance out the sweetness.
Easy and Sticky DIY Slime. OK, this may be something that isn’t just reserved for fall but I remember when I was an elementary school teacher, we always made slime on the same day we had our fall costume party. It’s a fun, sticky activity that can add to the season.
Savory Butternut Squash Soap. I LOVE soup and I really love this savory butternut squash soap that is ferfect for those chilly fall nights. Top with cooked bacon and OH.MY.IT’S.GOOD! 🙂 I even make a huge pot as a side for Thanksgiving.
Oh-So-Yummy Apple Pie Instant Oatmeal. I make lots of these baggies at once for quick, easy breakfasts that aren’t filled with all the junk that store-bought instant oatmeal packs are filled with. I have since stopped adding stevia, as I shared in the original recipe, and now just add a touch of maple syrup at serving. It’s so good!
