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 Painting – especially great for pumpkin decorating fun with young ones who can’t handle the tools yet. Have a family contest!

Bake 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.

Go 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.

Fall Books at the Library – Check out our ideas for Tree, Leaf, and Fall books!

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).

Most importantly, make great memories! Happy Fall!
