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.
There is the whole thing about Esther being a princess and all…and NyGirl is definitely a girly-girl type and is REALLY into princesses. So there you go.
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!
