As summer begins to wind down, we’re get closer and closer to fall every day! Fall officially starts on September 22, but we want to show you some activities that you can do with your kids next season so you can plan ahead. On a blog called Smart Kids 101, they wrote about 50 different fall activities that are very fun and engaging for children. These activities range from baking desserts to playing in leaf piles!
If you want to learn more, you can read about all 50 activities on their blog by clicking here. Otherwise, check out four of our favorite activities from the Smart Kids 101 blog below:
- Visit a Farmer’s Market: Fall is the perfect time to visit a Farmer’s Market. The weather is lovely and the seasonal pickin’s are good. Look for things available especially in autumn, like apples, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, and butternut squash. Shop early in the day for the best selection! Need inspiration? Check out this amazing collection of recipes for Fall Harvest Foods from the Food Network. Just watch that drooling over your keyboard.
- Go Apple Picking: If you’re fortunate enough to live near an apple orchard, this is one of the must-do fall activities. Visit the Pick Your Own website to search for a place near you if you’re not sure where to go. And make sure you bring a camera with you to capture more awesome photos of your fall activities. Pick enough apples to use for one (or more!) of the other apple-related fall activities on this list.
- Bake Apple Cider Donuts: Apple Cider Donuts. Need I say more? One of my favorite fall activities is to fire up the oven with some yummy seasonal treats. So bake them, wrap them up, and share with a friend. I can’t think of a better gift to say, “welcome, fall!” These just look too amazing to keep all to yourself.
- Rake the Leaves: No, I promise I’m not just sneaking a chore onto this list. But you do have leaves and they do need to be raked, so let’s call it serendipity. As you rake, have fun with it! Let the kids help use the “grown up” tools (be safe, of course) and pile all the leaves up in the middle of the yard. Once the pile is nice and fluffy, take turns jumping in it! This is a classic fall fun activity — and if you play your cards right, you can get your leaves cleaned up at the same time.
