The temperatures are cooling off and the days are growing shorter. That always makes me want to dash outside! My kids have the same idea and they want to soak up every moment outdoors before winter is here and we have to put our bikes
If you are looking for ways to get your family outdoors to savor the weather before winter arrives you are going to love these ideas! Active play
is perfect for fall days when we don't have to worry about getting overheated!
Visit an apple orchard together! The kids will love exploring row after row of apple or pear trees! Plus apples make a perfect healthy snack to fuel the fun all day long! I love giving my family a chance to learn about where our food comes from too for an added bonus!
Have you ever explored a corn maze? They are so much fun! Some are basic in design, while some are challenging and created to show a picture from an aerial view. Not only is it a challenge and a chance to get moving together, but it is also a fun way to spend time together in the peace of nature. You will never know what each twist and turn of a corn maze leads to!
We love to visit a farmer and buy a few bales of hay. They make a great outdoor seat for fall bonfires and parties and when they have served their purpose you can break them open and scatter on your lawn for new grass growth in the spring. My kids like to shoot nerf guns at them for target practice as well.
Fall is a great time to draw inspiration from nature and create some one of a kind decor. Gather grapevine to make wreaths, pinecones and leaves to preserve and flowers to press. These easy touches make your home look fantastic in the fall.
Scare Up Some Fun
While you are raking leaves and decorating for the autumn festivities, why not make a scarecrow? The kids will love to give it personality and it might motivate you to clean out your closets too! Make a game out of creating the head and whoever has the best idea gets to crown the scarecrow!
I hope these ideas inspire you to grab the family and get outside
this fall! If you have a favorite family activity, leave a comment to inspire other families!
