Fun Fall activities
When the question “what are we doing today?” comes up you can now whip this list out and let them choose one. Most of them are free to do (which I love) and simple to do. Even a “road trip” could consist of finding a new park, a corn maze, or driving thru a scenic byway with fall foliage. Just pack up a picnic, allow them to invite a friend, and find a pumpkin patch or apple orchard!
- Of course there are a lot of outdoor activities for kids. When it’s chilly outside though you might need some indoor activities for kids too.
This time of year my favorite thing to share is how you can have free fun with your children. It doesn’t always have to cost money to make them smile. It’s the quality of time, not quantity of time you spend with them. Being engaged is what they are interested in really.
- Feel free to print as many fun Fall activitites printables you’d like, and share with your Mom friends too!
If it’s October there are lots of things to do other than trick or treating. Color a playhouse together and then have a tea party inside.
Carve jack o lanterns together with family members for fun. Have a contest to see who carved the scariest one! Play Halloween movies while you’re carving. There are many kid friendly scary movies out there.
You can learn how to make homemade pumpkin puree out of the insides.
Now if you’re looking for fun things to cook with kids we have a bunch:
- Make bread in a bag together
- Here’s how to make ice cream at home with baggies
- This recipe for 6 cupcakes. My kids use this to bake by themselves.
- Visit a farmers market and make the best apple crisp at home with fresh apples. OR go all out and make fresh caramel apples with apple cider to drink.
Now is the perfect time to try new things. We love discovering new activities, like horseback riding! Now my girls are obsessed with animals and look forward to their horse time every week. Brainstorm ideas they might like to try. Do this each year because their interests will change for sure.
- Once you come up with what they’d like to do, Google that in your city. See if lessons are available, and if you can’t find anything contact your city website. Community classes might be available seasonally, or they might have a lead for you that isn’t listed on the internet.
