Fall has arrived and there are a lot of things to do during the winter months that can be done with the family.
If you or your family members are into arts and crafts, you might want to go gather the falling leaves, and make craft projects with them. Consider a wreath or a frame covered with leaves.
If you enjoy reading, take a trip to the library with the children, and show them how to find a book they love. They are never too young to teach them library rules.
For those of you that like the outdoors, there are a number of places to go for a family outing. In West Sac there is the Corn Maze in the month of October. The older children will love Dave’s Haunted Corn Maze. Located at Vierra Farms, 3010 Burrows Ave., West Sacramento, CA 95691. For more information on the Corn Mazes call 916.849.9450. www.vierrafarms.com
