Fall Programs for Kids (1)

I know Summer Reading is in full swing, but my head is filled with ideas for fall programs. Our town's Rec department comes out with a quarterly publication which is due next week. So my brain is on fall programming ideas. Fall for my library runs from September thru December. This is the first year for me creating programs for kids, so Pinterest is of course my new best friend. Here are some ideas I'm looking at closely.
