Fall time is a magical season. Both indoors and outdoors, there are plenty of seasonal activities for your family to enjoy.
Spending quality time can be especially difficult during the holiday season. There are plenty of quick fall activities that will create lasting memories for your children. Any of these could be suitable for your nanny to participate in with your family.
Here are some ideas to make the season fun for everybody.
Pumpkins can be delicious to eat, and fun to play with. Dedicating a day to pumpkin festivities is a creative and exciting way to spend time.
- Visiting a pumpkin patch is a great way to get some fresh air and get the kids away from the TV or computer games. This also gives your children the opportunity to pick out their own special pumpkin.
- Take the pumpkins home and decorate them! Set up carving and decorating stations in the backyard, and begin the festivities.
- Bake the leftover seeds! Preheat your oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Toss seeds in a bowl with melted butter (or coconut oil), salt, sugar and cinnamon. Spread the seeds in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for about 45 minutes.
Apples can be just as fun as pumpkins. Going apple picking is fun and educational. The kids will have a blast climbing trees and picking apples. They will also learn how apples grow and where the apples comes from. Turning the hand-picked apples into an apple pie will be fun and delicious.
If leaving the house is difficult, there are many fun fall activities you can enjoy in the comfort of your own home. In fact, some chores can be performed while having fun.
Nature Photo Shoot
Raking the leaves is never a fun chore, but it can be. Have everyone pitch in by creating large leaf piles. Leaf piles are fun to play in, and so are pictures of the kids playing in them.
Dress Up Movie Night
Who says that you can only dress up on Halloween? Pick a movie to watch, and have everyone dress up as their favorite character. This is a creative way for your children to express themselves.
Camp In Your Backyard
Camping is a fun activity, but it definitely requires a lot of preparation. Camping in your backyard (or even your living room) is a creative alterative. If you are camping in your backyard you can build a bonfire, pitch a tent and bundle up in sleeping bags.
If you do not have a backyard, there are ways to create the outdoors inside. Hang twinkle lights to create stars and pitch your version of a tent in the living room.
