Don’t you just love Autumn?
The cooler days are a great excuse to grab a hot chocolate, throw on some comfy knitwear and go for a fresh walk outside. The colour changing trees and orange toned landscapes, makes Autumn one of my favourite seasons.
Have you made your Autumn family bucket list yet?
Making blackberry crumble and going on nature walks is at the top of my list. If you’re stuck for things to do with your kids on these cooler days, check out our 5 Outdoor Activities To Do In Autumn:
1. Apple Or Pumpkin Picking
I love fruit picking. Do you too? Every summer we go strawberry picking and every September we search for blackberries in our local lanes, so we can go home and make baked goods with what we find. There is something so lovely about picking your own fruit and it’s a great activity to do with children. Autumn is the perfect time to head to your local orchard or pumpkin fields, to pick up some seasonal, delicious goods.
2. Make A Den In The Woods
A simple, but fun activity to do in Autumn, is finding sticks and making the biggest and best den. Why not take a picnic, to eat in the den when it’s built? We love going to the woods and making little houses. It’s a great activity for the kids and a fun way to make friends on a visit to your local woods.
3. Fly A Kite
Both younger and older children love flying kites. We first took our daughter kite flying at 18 months old and she really enjoyed holding the kite and running down the hill to make it fly. Find your nearest big hill and make the most of the windier, chillier days. If you don’t have a kite, why not make your own?
4. Camp In The Garden
Still pining after summer? Camping holidays and festivals might be over now, but you can still put up your tent in the garden and let your children enjoy a night under the stars. If you get chilly you can always move inside, or grab extra blankets. Don’t forget to make some delicious smores and boil the kettle for some warming hot chocolate.
5. Have A Leaf Fight
This is the perfect activity to do in Autumn, for all ages. Whether in the woods or in your garden, raking up leaves and having a leaf fight is so much fun. Plus all the colours look so beautiful as they’re flying through the air. It makes the perfect photo opp! If you don’t fancy yourself a leaf fight, then why not get your kids to collect some leaves and make some Autumn art? Check out our 3 Easy Toddler Autumn Crafts for some further inspiration.
If you are heading outside this Autumn, don’t forget to dress up warm and take your best, funkiest kids umbrellas, to make those unexpected, typical British rain showers, more fun!
