Crafty Makes, Outdoor Fun

Autumn Adventures


We have been so busy this Autumn  – it has been so much fun!
I have decided to do a little sketch each season with doodles of my favourite activities and objects that I love about that particular time of year.



My favourite part of Autumn so far was pumpkin picking from our own garden. The past few months all 3 of us have been so excited to check how big our pumpkin had grown. The biggest was 29kg we grew organically and relied mostly on the rain to water them. It has set the benchmark for next year now.


We have made lots of Halloween crafts including a pop-pom garland, pumpkin stamps using an apple, toilet roll tube bats and Halloween figures. When crafting with my daughter Mia and I try and recycle products where possible whether it’s re-purposing a item or using bits left over from a previous activity.


Generally, we take a break from gardening over winter but we plant garlic and spring flowering bulbs. Each Autumn we plant bulbs for mothers day flowers which we then give out to our mums and grandmothers – Mia waters and helps to look after them.

It has been an awesome autumn so far lots of trips to the woods, hot drinks, reading, crafts and more.
