4. Bible Lesson
We have always loved the fall. The weather is cooler and we can finally play outside. But most importantly, it is a wonderful way to share how mighty Jehovah God truly is that he created the world with different seasons! In Daniel 2:21 is shows us this very message as it says, “He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding.”
Another wonderful message to share with your kiddos is that there’s always a time for everything much like Ecclesiastes 3:1-22 says, “For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;”
So while the weather is changing, our LORD is not and will forever remain a consistent resource for all life.

Paper Pumpkin Craft Tutorial:
After you have printed your pumpkin craft template, cut the shapes out and trace the petal shape and the circle on orange paper. Then trace the smaller leaf shape on green paper.
A total of 6 petals, 1 circle and 2 leaves are required.
Then start gluing piecing the petals together around in a circle. They should start to form a flower like shape.
Next, glue the tips of the petals together to form your pumpkin craft.
Tuck the last one inside and secure it with glue.
To finish it off, glue on your leaves. You can also cut a thin strip of brown paper or brown pipe cleaner to make a stem.
This what it should look like when it is done.
How did yours come out?
Once you are finished, display your paper pumpkin craft proudly as a beautiful work of art!
