Fun Fall Activities for the Kids
The weather is turning cooler, leaves are changing colors, and pumpkins are a hot commodity. Fall is a beautiful time and inspires many activities to help keep your children entertained. Check out some of our recommended fall activities to try this season!
1. CARVE PUMPKINS.
Nothing says “autumn” more than taking a trip to a local pumpkin patch. Your child will love being able to pick something out by themselves and you’ll be able to have the fun continue at home where you can carve them! Challenge your older kids with thesesilly pumpkin carving ideas and inspire your little ones to get involved with one of thesepainted pumpkin crafts. Also, remember to keep those delicious seeds! Here are someyummy recipes for seasoning and roasting them.
2. RAKE LEAVES.
Kill two birds with one stone. This simple task is a great way to have some outdoor fun with your kids while boosting your home's curb appeal at the same time! After the leaves are all the raked up the fun can begin and your kids can jump in them to their heart's desire until it’s finally time to clean them up! Rake leaves at your home or in your community, either way, your kids will learn to appreciate the importance that cleaning up doesn’t have to be all work and no play!
3. GO TO AN APPLE ORCHARD.
This classic autumn activity is an awesome opportunity to enjoy the outdoors and connect with your family. When you visit the Enjoy all the orchard has to offer (hayrides, caramel apples, etc.), or just enjoy the sunshine and the trees. The best part is you can bring home the apples you picked and make homemade apple cider, which is not only delicious but easy to make. Check outthis list for the best apple-picking spots around the country.
4. NAVIGATE A CORN MAZE.
Another great outdoor activity includes going to a corn maze! You won't have to nag your kids to get outside or exercise when this fun activity is involved. Many corn mazes include trivia games or scavenger hunts as part of the adventure, so not only will your kids be active, but they’ll also stimulate their mind. Most of all you’ll have something to celebrate when you survive getting out of the maze with your kiddos all in one piece! Find the perfect corn maze for your familyhere.
5. START A GRATITUDE JOURNAL.
Thanksgiving is around the corner. Consider having a hot-cocoa date with your child and starting a Gratitude Journal. If your kiddos are too young to write, they can also express their gratitude through anart journal or dictate their thoughts for you to record. Reminding your kids of what is important in life is a lesson they will hopefully take with them forward for the rest of their life. Of course, hot cocoa is not required… but it is recommended!
