Craft of the Month--September

The air is turning cooler and the leaves are beginning to turn color and drift gently to the ground. It's autumn--time to think about getting back to school and bringing in the harvest. September crafts of the month include a paper bag scarecrow, an egg carton school bus, and a fruit of the Spirit apple garland.

Teach your children about the fruit of the Spirit by making this beautiful apple garland.  Visit I Can Teach My Child for instructions.

“But the Fruit of the Spirit is
love,
joy,
peace,
patience,
kindness,
goodness,
faithfulness,
gentleness,
and self-control. 
Against such things there is no law.” 
Galatians 5:22-23
