Autumn is finally here but will be gone before you know it. Take advantage of the cool weather and make some memories with your kids using this list of fun things to do in the autumn with your little ones.
- Apple Picking
Apple picking is in full effect and will continue through late October. Orchards offer families the opportunity to pick apples that can be turned into cider, sauce, pies and all sorts of other goodies. Some orchards also host fun attractions like petting zoos. Grab a basket and your kids and head for the trees and a day full of fun.
- Fire Station Visit
Why not plan a visit to your local Fire Station? It’s free and full of fun! Try on the uniforms, climb on the truck and learn about fire safety. Just be sure to call ahead of time to schedule a visit. Who knows, you might be lucky enough to slide down the pole.
- Create Homemade Autumn Décor
Your back garden should be full of fallen leaves, sticks and pine cones by now. Fill up a bowl with pines cones that are painted in your child’s favourite colour. Set them on the table for an instant autumn centre piece. You can even turn them into bird feeders by tying a string on top and covering them in peanut butter and bird seeds. Round up a bunch of leaves, string them together and make a homemade garland. You’re sure to bring the beauty of autumn indoors.
- Carve A Pumpkin
When you think of autumn you typically think of Halloween pumpkins. Why not start practicing early, and carve some pumpkins? You and your kids can have fun getting as creative as you can, and will have an interesting collection of decorations at the end of the day. When you’ve finished, you can even use your pumpkins to make some delicious soup.
