Fall is a wonderful time to engage children in various outdoor and indoor activities that celebrate the season. Taking advantage of the extra time off from school and work is what the holiday season is all about, so use your time wisely to have some fun! Here are a few fun fall activities for kids that will kick you off to a good start:
Leaf Pile Jumping
You might be dragging your feet to rake the leaves out of your yard, but what if it could be made into a fun activity for the family? Get the kids together to help gather leaves to create a hefty pile. After you and your children have a big enough stack of leaves, take turns jumping into it! Making a mess is all part of the fun, and you get a bunch of willing helping hands to help clean up after. This activity leaves you with a clean yard and lasting memories of fall fun!
The Texas version of Fall doesn't last long, so take advantage of the cool breeze and forgiving autumn weather. Gather the family up and locate a local nature trail within your area. The Woodlands has over 220 miles worth of walking and biking trails throughout the community. You can make this activity even more fun if you decide to take your bikes, or a basket of food for a family picnic afterward! Enjoy the crisp fall weather with a family picnic in the park or your backyard. Pack some of your favorite fall treats like cider, sandwiches, and apple pie.
When it’s time to head back inside, there are surely more great activities to partake in! Fall calls for sweet treats if pumpkin spice and everything nice! Get the kids on board to help bake a tasty treat for the whole family to enjoy. Bonding in the kitchen happens to be one of the best places to make memories, so take out that mixing bowl and get started! Pies, cookies, rice crispy treats and so much more! Get a taste of fall before the season comes to an end.
