5 Ways To Enjoy FALL {With Your Kids}

It’s September, and our house has already transformed into a fall wonderland! Yes, I know that technically summer doesn’t end for a couple more weeks, but when you are as into seasons and holidays as much as our family is, you have to start everything early So what exactly is there to look forward to over the next couple of months? Plenty! And if you need some ideas, I’m sharing our plans!

1. Go for a walk. Find a local park or street with various color changing trees such as Sugar Maples, Dog Wood and Bald Cypress. Encourage your little one to step on, pile up and throw those fallen leaves high into the sky! Better yet, bring your camera or hire someone to make it an official family photo shoot! We generally use this time of year to get our holiday card done and ready. Oh, and don’t forget to bring some of those leaves home to use for a fall craft!

2. Visit a Pumpkin Patch. This is classic fall fun! Spend some time visiting with barn animals before taking a hayride out to the pumpkin patch. Select and purchase that perfect gourd to display in your home or carve! Many of these family owned and operated farms offer little extras too, like markets, property tours and fresh home made treats!

3. Bake seasonal treats! There’s just so many wonderful ingredients available this time of year, and if your kids are anything like mine they’ll love to help you bake up a storm in the kitchen! Some of our fall favorites are Cinnamon Apple Scones, Apple Crumble, Pumpkin Muffins, Pumpkin Scones and baked pumpkin seeds. All are easy and super tasty (just make sure you have spices such as nutmeg, cloves, ginger and cinnamon on hand!)

4. Watch Charlie Brown. I grew up on Charlie Brown during the holidays, so it’s tradition for me to watch A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving and It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. My oldest loves Snoopy and his wild imagination and I love that it’s a safe (not scary) family show for viewing. In a world that seems to glorify gore, it’s a real benefit. Thanks Mr. Schulz!

5. Have a Pumpkin Spice Latte. Okay, okay, so this has nothing to do with the kids and is fully for my own satisfaction. But come on, they’re the best thing to come from Starbucks out of the whole calendar year! So indulge a little! Enjoy! I love you, pumpkin spice latte…

So there you have it parents, multiple ways to fill your weeks as the days grow shorter, darker and colder. And the best part? You can do any of these more than once!
