Fall is here! And this is a great season for fun with the whole family. Here are some great, family-friendly ideas for quality time and autumn-centered activities:

pumpkin-painting27Pumpkin Painting – especially great for pumpkin decorating fun with young ones who can’t handle the tools yet. Have a family contest! mini-apple-pie.jpgBake with Apples – getting in the kitchen is a great way to reinforce healthy eating… if you can, trace your culinary journey all the way back to its source with some apple picking! Make apple pie (or these mini graham-cracker apple pie bites), apple sauce, or caramel apples. hs-leaf-hunt-5.jpgGo on a Leaf Hunt – see who can find the most colors of leaves, the most variety, or the crunchiest! Build a leaf pile and jump in. Make the most of the cooling weather and great outdoors. Leaf Crafts – Use the leaves you found and collected to make leaf rubbings, trace leaves, tape a leaf down and color the surrounding space (remove to reveal the negative), and even make a leaf collage.

Family Fall Festivals

Fall festivals are a great way to have your cider, do a cornmaze, take a hayride, and buy your pumpkins. Find the great, local festival near you and look into what else is going on your community that you can take part in (like our Creative World School Fall Festivals, at various locations).
