One of the things my daughter really enjoys is our fun "themed" days at our local homeschool co-op.
In our family, in particular, we do not participate in Halloween activities...but many churches have a Fall Festival and the children have an opportunity to dress up and enjoy fun activities.
I have mixed feelings about fall festival, especially those that somehow "take the place" of Halloween- but one thing I know for sure- God created the seasons which we enjoy, so why not enjoy them, even celebrate them? I can celebrate the God and creator of fall, spring, winter, and summer... so with that said...
Our co-op has Costume Day during this season. NyGirl is enjoying dressing up as a biblical character- Esther. I think Esther must be her all-time favorite bible character.
Here she is during co-op, walking across the front of the auditorium to announce her character. We had some really great costumes this year and lots of creativity in our group!
