When the weather starts to turn cooler, people start to head indoors. However, cool weather is the perfect time to get outside and enjoy nature. When fall hits, you don’t have to worry about sweating like crazy or enduring the heat, you can simply get out with the kids and focus on having fun. Lots of fun activities for kids only happen a few months out of the year, so take advantage of them.
For example, you can get out of the house and go visit the farm. A lot happens on farms during the fall. While many farms are winding down their crop season, crops such as corn, pumpkins and apples are still available. Go apple-picking with your kids and take a break to have a glass of fresh apple cider. Visit a pumpkin farm and choose the perfect pumpkins to carve for Halloween or take a hay ride around the pumpkin patch. Get lost in a corn maze, during the day or at night.
If you prefer to stay home, there’s still a lot you can do outside with your kids. If you have a lot of trees, their leaves are probably falling. Rake them up and have fun jumping in them, swimming in them and hiding in them, then jumping out to scare younger brothers and sisters. In the evenings, bundle up and make a fire in your fire pit for roasting hot dogs and marshmallows. Share the events of your day as you enjoy a dinner around the fire and breathe in the crisp, cool fall air.
