5 Fun Fall Activities with Kids

It's officially Fall. 
The weather is getting cooler, the days are getting shorter and there are lots of new, fun things to do now that summer is over. October is my favourite month of the year. I love Halloween and the start of the Fall season. I'm really looking forward to dressing Calleigh up for Halloween this year! There is also lot's of fun things happening in our local area that we will be going to.

Here is a list of my top 5 activites to do this fall.

  1. Visit a Pumpkin Patch and do some pumpkin picking- This is a great activity to do with kids. We have never done it before but are really looking forward to going this year. Just 15 minutes from us there is a great place called Rombach Farms which has a great Pumpkin Patch and lots of other activities to do there including hay rides, pony rides and a wooden maze. And the fun doesn't stop there, once you take the pumpkin home you can have fun carving spooky faces on it. 
  2. Halloween Crafts- There are lots of places on the Internet you can download Halloween crafts for free. It's a great way to decorate your house for Halloween and practice creativity with your little one. has a great range of Halloween crafts with all their favourite Disney Junior characters. 
  3. Taking a walk- To me there is no better time to take a walk than this time of year. All the colourful trees, leaves crunching under your feet and lots of wildlife about. 
  4. Keep a look out for local events. A lot of places will have Halloween and Fall special events and festivals. I know the St Louis Zoo is doing "Boo at the Zoo" for Halloween so we will definitely be visiting them this Halloween. 
  5. Do some baking- Fall is a great time to indulge in some baking. There are some great recipes for Halloween cakes and cupcakes. You can find lot's of kid friendly recipes on the Internet and tips on how to make baking more fun with your little ones.
