    16 Fall Activities for Kids


    Fall Activities for Kids


    Nothing beautifully captures the charisma of fall more than the “Season of Mists and Mellow Fruitfulness,” English Romantic Poets John Keats’ ode To Autumn. Nearly 200 years ago, he penned it after a walk in the water meadows behind Winchester College near his home.  

    Aha! Such is the allure of the autumn season.

    What comes to your mind when you think of the fall? 

    It marks the end of the hot summer and the beginning of cooler nights, signaling the onset of winter. This sweet and short season usually lasts from September until November every year. 

    As the flora and fauna change color, fall is a great time to engage in fun and educational activities with your kids. Whether you’re looking for indoor or outdoor activities, there are plenty of options to keep kids entertained and engaged in this period. 

    Let’s dive deep into this and make a list of a few activities filled with fun and frolic for your kids to welcome this beautiful season of vibrant shades and colors:

    1. Nature Walk:

    Nature is essential during fall to familiarize your children with this beautiful season. Take them for a walk in a nearby park or forest. Allow them to watch the changing colors of leaves, trees, and plants as birds chirp and leave rustle.

    2. Gathering Leaves:

    During a leisure walk, encourage kids to collect colorful leaves of different plants and bring them home to study. Let them observe other leaves’ shapes, sizes, and colors and memorize their names.

    3. Making Art:

    Enjoy creating garlands and wreaths with your kids using flowers, twigs, and leaves collected during a nature walk. Another creative activity to enhance their imagination is tracing different leaves. Kids can also use them for craft projects like leaf rubbing or painting.

    Let your creativity flow with fall-themed crafts like paper mache pumpkins, leaf wreaths, and acorn necklaces.

    4 A Visit to Local Zoo and Wildlife Sanctuary:

    Exploring local zoos and wildlife sanctuaries is an excellent way for kids to satisfy their natural curiosities and learn about their surroundings. They can also familiarize themselves with the native animals and their natural habitats.

    5. Trip to Pumpkin Patch:

    Pumpkin festivities flash on the mind as one enters fall. A trip to a nearby pumpkin farm could be an excellent enjoyment for the kids, where they can pick up their choice of golden or green pumpkins to decorate their homes. 

    6. Fall-themed Events:

    Look for local fall festivals and events that offer fun activities for kids, such as hayrides, corn mazes, and pumpkin decorating contests, and visit them. 

    • Halloween is a festival that showcases the tradition of carving jack-o-lanterns out of pumpkins. Children delight in wearing masks, going from house to house, and lighting lanterns carved into various shapes around their homes.
    • In addition to the famous Halloween festival, there are pumpkin decorating contests where houses are adorned with fall-themed decorations, such as hanging pumpkin lanterns and carving them into scary or funny faces. There are also contests for pumpkin painting, adding a creative touch to the festive atmosphere.
    • On a sunny afternoon, you can have fun crafting scarecrows in the backyard with your kids using hay and old clothes. Children also find joy in hayrides and races across the fields.

    7. A Visit to a Corn Maze:

    One exciting venture for kids is visiting a corn barn. There, they embark on the adventure of navigating through a corn maze. Finding their way out of the labyrinth brings excellent entertainment to the kids while also fostering the development of their problem-solving skills.

    8. Apple Orchid Tour:

    Autumn invites you to visit apple orchards, where fresh apples are grown. The joy of picking and bringing your apples home can be a delightful experience. Utilize those freshly picked apples to create homemade apple cider and bake delicious apple pies with your child. It’s an easy and enjoyable way to learn the art of baking.

    9. Making a Bird Feeder: 

    With the help of pinecones, make a bird feeder and watch colorful birds flock to your backyard with your children.

    10. Hosting a Bonfire:

    The best way to bond and have fun is a fall bonfire in the backyard with delicious treats on starry autumn nights.

    11. Camping Out:

    Elbow out the routine chores and chill out with kids by camping in the open, gazing at shooting stars, and breathing in the cool, crisp air of the season.

    12. Making a Family Picnic:

    Any outing in this season is fun, even the traditional family picnic. You can add a touch of the season by packing seasonal fruits and salads with fresh vegetables and complementing them with hot drinks and snacks for your picnic. Create cherished memories with your family while savoring the beauty of nature.

    13. Clicking Photographs:

    Capturing pictures of changing foliage and colorful surrounding of the fall, like birds and flowers, make a lifetime memory. 

    14. Watch a fall movie: 

    Set a projector in your backyard for your kids and their friends. You can make them watch a fall-themed movie such as “Hocus Pocus” or “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.”

    15. Jumping on Leaf Piles:

    Rake the leaves into a big pile while cleaning the lawns and make it a fun activity for kids. They will love jumping into the bank and playing joyfully in dried, crunchy leaves.

    16. Visiting Local Market:

    Going to a local market is a great way to learn about seasonal fruits and vegetables. At the same time, it also helps the local farmers.

    To Sum it up

    These are just a few fall activities you can do with your kids. Autumn worldwide calls for magical experiences filled with nature’s activities and colorful events.

    Participating in these activities can make cherished and memorable moments for kids and families, resulting in well-knit family bonding.

    I am a primary school teacher and have conducted a leaf-collecting competition! Ask kids to find the biggest, reddest, or most interesting-shaped leaf. Then, use them for leaf collage art projects.
