Fun Fall Activities for Kids

Now that summer is winding to a close, it's time to start planning fun fall activities for the kids. Whether you choose to spend time outside enjoying the cooler weather, have fun crafts planned for indoors, or maybe play with fall foods, we have some fun ideas for you this fall!

Fall Activities For Kids include this great list of 30 Fun Fall Activities For Kids that are perfect for days spent indoors due to dreary weather!

Ready for chilly evenings, jumping in leaves, and pumpkin everything? So are we!  I've been working on our Fall Bucket List and coming up with new things to try this year.  

We always go for nature walks, do scavenger hunts, and take advantage of the cooler weather by playing outside before the snow & subzero temps hit, but I wanted some more fun indoor fall activities for kids this year too.  

Sensory play is huge at our house. Even my almost 10 year old (my, how time flies!) loves doing sensory bins, so you'll find quite a few fun fall sensory activities made the list.

When it comes to celebrating fall, the ideas for fall activities for kids really are endless!  It's all about taking advantage of the season changing around you.  From the beautiful colors of leaves changing, to the fun activities hosted around your area, fall is well known for outdoor activities.  

However, we know that temperatures and weather don't always make that easy.  So, this list of ideas is a great way to have a backup plan that you can enjoy with your kids.

I also like to include these fall activities for kids in our homeschool lessons.  As I mentioned, sensory play is big in our home.  It is definitely another way to help the boys learn about the seasons.  

You can easily include these activities alongside spelling worksheets, math manipulatives, and our favorite books like The Seasons of Arnold's Apple Tree, or the classic, Johnny Appleseed. It creates a great fall themed homeschool unit study that is ideal for keeping your kids attention on those dreary fall days.
