Fall Activities for Kids
The leaves are turning beautiful colors, the air is crisp and it’s pumpkin everything! However, life can also be really busy and it’s easy to miss all the splendors of the season.
Sometimes we get caught up in our to do lists, endless activities and household chores that it’s easy to miss special moments. That is why I wanted to give you some easy autumn activities for kids that you can easily enjoy this season as a family.
Let’s be intentional with our time and make some wonderful memories.
We have compiled a list of Free Fall Activities for Kids to help us be intentional this season.
This list is not meant to be extravagant but to focus on the simple pleasures in life. Don’t you agree that the best memories are often the ones spent just playing with our kids?
From nature walks to jumping in leaves and exploring the pumpkin patch, these activities are free or inexpensive. There is something for all ages and the entire family will have a blast.
The cooler weather is perfect to get outside and just explore and have a blast.
Fall Bucket list for kids
You might want to print this Fall bucket list and put it on your fridge. You can mark them off as you do these fun activities.
Another idea is to to the kids choose a fun activity to do each week. They will look forward all week to being the one to choose.
1. Curl up and read a book all about Fall.
We have lots of favorites but Llama Llama Gives Thanks is always one at the top of the list. It is a wonderful book to enjoy year after year and encourage being thankful.
2. Jump in leaves!
What could be more fun than jumping in a giant pile of leaves! Grab the kids and see who can make the biggest pile and then jump!
3. Bake something Pumpkin.
Your house will smell amazing and the kids will have a blast helping you bake pumpkin bread, muffins, cookies or anything you like! Pumpkin Cookies are a big hit in our house.
We have a ton of recipes here we use.
4. Go on a Fall walk
Take a walk into the woods, in the park or just around your yard! Spot leaves and rocks and just be together and enjoy all the signs of Fall.
This is a great time to talk and just hear about each other’s day.
5. Watch a Fall movie
We love It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown but any Fall movie will do. Make some popcorn or enjoy a Fall treat and watch the movie as a family.
6. Go the the Pumpkin Patch
Pick a pumpkin, enjoy a hay ride, play a few games and take in all your local pumpkin patch has to offer.This is an annual tradition that you can enjoy and the kids will look forward to it each year.
7. Pick Apples
Visit a nearby apple orchard and spend the day picking apples. Pack a picnic and make a day of it! So fun.
8. Roast S’mores
Make a bonfire or use your fire pit to make s’mores. You could also roast hot dogs and have dinner and dessert!
Tell stories as you all sit around the fire and just enjoy being together.
9. Make a Grateful Tree
Gather sticks or small branches and place in a vase. Make construction paper leaves and each day let the entire family write something they are thankful for on the leave.
Attach the leaf to one of the branches and you will soon have a tree full of leaves expressing thanksgiving.
10. Random Act of Kindness
Decide as a family something you can do together in the Fall to help someone else. You might donate food to your local food bank, pay for the car behind you in the drive thru, leave extra change taped to the vending machine or whatever your family feels led to do!
