WELCOME AUTUMN

FALL = FUN ACTIVITIES FOR FAMILIES

Autumn is a wonderful time to go on fun family dates. With the weather crisp yet pleasant, it’s a wonderful opportunity to visit nature trails, local farmers markets and enjoy the turning colors of fall leaves. Fall is also a great time to visit local farms to go apple picking.  What a great way to teach kids about how apples are grown and encourage them to eat this vitamin packed snack!


THINGS TO DO:

You can make a Fall bucket list of things to do with the family and enjoy the next few weeks!

Here are a few community websites to help you plan your fall family bucket list:

CRAFTS:

Fall crafts are so much fun to do with kids! It’s a fabulous way to get the creativity flowing for both parents and kids. Below is a fun and quick craft:

 

 

 

All you need:  leaves, paper, glue and a marker.

 

 

 

 

 


MONTESSORI INSPIRED ACTIVITIES:

 

Children roll the dice and then used the tweezers to transfer the same number of pumpkin seeds into the empty bowl. They continue to roll the dice until all of the pumpkins seeds have been transferred. This activity can also be done without the tweezers and/or the dice.

This is a great way to combine math with fine motor skills.
