The other day, we planned and executed a wet, but fun trip to taste table grapes.  There were  thirty different varieties to pick and we brought home a bunch, which I thought would last until at least the end of the week, but half were gone before we even made it home and the other half were gone in a couple of days.  We went with Clara’s friend Maya and despite the rain, both girls had a blast running around, picking and eating grapes, and especially wielding their umbrellas.

Prior to going, we had some free time to kill, so we made a grape art project.  I got this idea from the great blog, No Time for Flash Cards.  We used purple painted bubble wrap to stamp a “grape” pattern on white paper, backed it with green card stock, and cut it into the shape of a bunch of grapes.
Step 1: Paint bubble wrap.
Step 2: Stamp bubble wrap on paper.
Step 3: Glue onto green card stock and cut.

Most people think that fall is all about harvesting apples. But really, if you’re in the right frame of mind, its all about the grapes.
