Fall season is in full swing, and if you’re looking for ways to make it a really special season for your little ones, check out a few of these great activities to do with your kids. They are fun for the whole family, and most are free!
Bake Themed Cupcakes
Cupcakes are always great for any occasion and making themed cupcakes can get your kids ready for Fall. Have your kids decorate each cupcake in a Fall, Halloween, or even a Thanksgiving theme and then wrap the cupcakes so that you can deliver them to loved ones or take them to a local school or nursing home to spread the cupcake cheers!
Purchase some small pumpkins at your grocery store and pick up some craft paint in Fall colors (think oranges, browns, blacks, reds, and greens). Use these to paint pumpkins instead of carving them, which can create a huge mess and even lead to injuries. You can paint the pumpkins anyway you choose and even add embellishments like ribbons, bows, fake mustaches, hats, and more. The possibilities are endless!
Make a Nice Fall Dinner
You will already be cooking dinner, so why not make it a warm, Fall favorite like pot-roast or chicken pot pie? Have your kids helps and tell them why such comfort foods are great for fall. As you cook the food, you can discuss the changing seasons and have your kids decorate some paper placemats with fake leaves or pictures of Fall scenes.
Jump in the Leaves
What better way to celebrate the falling leave and the changing colors that Fall offers than to get outside in nature and enjoy it all? Rake up some leaves and jump in the piles, or go hunting for leaves of certain colors, sizes and shapes to use in Fall crafts.
Visit a Corn Maze
Corn mazes pop up everywhere in the Fall, and some even offer cider and snacks to enjoy as you go along thorough the maze, but if they don’t you can always bring your own. Get your kids in the Fall spirit by taking them to one!
Fall Photo Shoot
Anytime is a great time to take pictures of your little ones, right? Well, get them out in the gorgeous scenery and lighting of Fall and snap away! Fall photos are a great way to show off that Fall wardrobe and take some memorable pictures of your babies.
