Great Ideas For Fall Fun
Summer isn't the only season that is suited for outdoor fun. Autumn offers plenty of opportunities to enjoy time outdoors with your kids too. Put down the remote control and get ready for some serious fall fun with your family!
Take a nature walk
Take a nature walk with your kids. Collect leaves, small twigs, nuts, colorful rocks and other items to decorate for fall. Decorate a wooden or papier-mache picture frame with found treasures from your nature walk.
Go on a leaf hunt
This fall, teach your children about helping out the less fortunate. Collect coats, warm clothing, blankets, and food items to donate to homeless shelters and emergency relief shelters. Winter is right around the corner, making this a much-welcomed and appreciated gesture.
Take a family road trip
Load the family into the car and visit a pumpkin patch! Spend time choosing just the right pumpkins: different shapes and sizes, some for carving, and some for painting.
Decorate with pumpkin heads
Pumpkins aren't just for Halloween. They can be enjoyed all fall long. Fill your house with pumpkin heads! Decorate miniature pumpkins with paint, markers, glue, googly eyes, and yarn for hair. Anything goes!
Feed the birds
Make feeders for squirrels and birds. Make simple pine cone feeders by spreading a mixture of suet and birdseed onto a pine cone. Tie a piece of string to the cone and suspend it from a low tree branch. For a different type of feeder, fill a small wicker basket with nuts, seeds and corn feed, and attach it to a tree in your yard.
