Listed below, I have included some Fall activities for kids that will help keep you having fun together. Use these ideas to help come up with some fun weekend activities that help your family bond and enjoy the beautiful fall weather!
Fall Activities for Kids To Do As A Family Indoors
DIY Leaf Punch Art. Activities include crafts, right? I just love this DIY Leaf Punch Art that I spotted on Momtastic. Not only will this be fun to create, but you can use it to help decorate your home for the season!
Create your own Halloween Costumes. Does your family dress up for Halloween? Why not work together and create your own costumes. You Brew My Tea has a great list of 25 Halloween Costume ideas that you can make. We also have our top 9 DIY Halloween Costumes that you will love! Not only is this just fun, but you can also save the family a lot of money over buying new. Plus, it will be easy to make matching costumes for everyone!
Paint or Decorate Pumpkins. Head to your local grocery store or pumpkin patch and grab a pumpkin for each family member to have everyone decorate it without carving. (Today’s Parent has some great ideas) The fact that they aren’t carved will help them to stay good longer. Plus it’s a fun way to decorate your outdoor space for the season.
Create DIY Halloween Decorations. More fun decorating for the season! Look at these fun upcycled Halloween Decor pieces that My Heavenly Recipes created! She also has some Fall Crafts and Recipes that are easy to create with the kids too!
Fall Activities for Kids To Do As A Family Outside
Leaf collecting. With the color changing leaves that decorate our streets and yards, it is hard to argue that Fall is simply gorgeous! Why not head outside with the family and do a little bit of leaf collecting? Look for the most unique shaped and colored leaves to keep as your prize. But make sure you jump into a big pile of those beautiful leaves first though. That is a Fall right of passage.
Visit an Apple Orchard. You cannot let fall activities for kids pass without a visit to an Apple Orchard! It’s fun, festive and you can stock up on apples while you are there! You can do a quick Google search to look for Apple Orchards near you. Be sure to print out this fun Apple Printable from The Melrose Family.
Visit a Pumpkin Patch. Little and big kids alike love to go to the Pumpkin Patch! Pumpkin patches are full of fun family activities such as pumpkin picking, corn maze, hayrides and more. You can find lots of fun Pumpkin Patch Crafts here from Frosted Moms.
