Every year we are blessed to have the time to admire the orange confetti of dried leaves
and the cool breeze (and the anticipation of two holidays: Thanksgiving and Halloween).
But if you haven’t started enjoying the season yet, there’s still a great amount of time
just before good ol’ chilly winter knocks our doors.
1. Make your own Fall Wonderland
Who doesn’t admire the look of autumn? The falling red-orange leaves like confetti and
the romantic colors around makes the world look like an autumn wonderland. Dress
warm with the family, step outside, and enjoy the cool air.
2. Have fun while raking leaves
Turn this old tiresome chore into a fun one! How? By making it into a family activity!
Encourage your kids, especially small ones, by letting them play in the leaves for a
while before you and the whole pack are ready to throw them in the trash bins or in the
compose pit. Make a mountain of leaves or shower them in it, whatever you choose be
creative! Also, raking leaves is a good exercise. You’ll soon improve your upper body
strength while having fun time with the kiddos!
3. Get sporty among the leaves
Remember back in the summer when it was too hot and uncomfortable to play outside?
Well fall’s the time to get back on the lost time and missed fun! With the air slightly
cooler, get the family to play some soccer or even a game of tag and finally have some
quality time plus you’ll get to burn those extra calories from all the pies!
4. Be creative and make Autumn arts and crafts
This is a hit among small kids. Children are always attracted to pretty cute things and
you can see a lot of those in autumn. Let them find an interestingly shaped leaf or those
adorable acorns and help them make a scrapbook of their favourite autumn objects.
Make DIY decorations and maybe add more beauty to their school supplies by making
them Autumn-inspired covers!
5. An orange scavenger hunt
This game is an exciting adventure of pursuit against time. Both kids and adults will
have fun finding objects or hidden “treasures” around the park or backyard. This type of
activity is a sure form of exercise and will deliver laughs and smiles!
