Fun Fall Activities to Do with the Kids


I took this photo last year–the trees don’t quite look like this yet!

I love this time of year! Last Friday I shared some of the free fall-themed packets and indoor activities you can do with your 3-6 year old, but there are so many other great fall activities you can do with your child as well. Here are some of our favorites:

  • just go outside and enjoy the weather
  • collect leaves and do leaf rubbings
  • go apple picking
  • read fall-themed books
  • decorate the house in a fall theme
  • go for a hike at your local state park
  • plant bulbs in your garden for next spring
  • jump in a pile of leaves
  • make an apple or pumpkin pie
  • go on a hay ride
  • drink hot apple cider
  • visit a corn maze
  • visit a pumpkin patch
  • carve pumpkins
  • toast pumpkin seeds
  • let the kids use the camera to take fall photos
  • go camping and have a bonfire
  • make some fall crafts (visit the Crafty Crow for a HUGE selection of fall crafts!!)
  • make pumpkin muffins (here’s my favorite recipe!)
