You can feel it in the air. The days are definitely getting shorter, the days aren’t as hot as they were and there is a noticeable crispness in the morning air. Look at the trees, they are a telling sign that summer is coming to an end and fall is on the way.
Fall weather invites your family to be active outdoors and enjoy everything this wonderful season has to offer. Kid Scholars Academy, your Sugar Land Preschool, offers these fun fall activities you can do with your family.
There is no better way to explore the start of the fall season than with a wonderful nature hike to collect beautiful autumn leaves. In addition to their beauty, there is just so much you can learn from them. Fall leaves provide a springboard for all sorts of learning comparison including developing descriptive vocabulary, contrast and matching and measurement.
Visit a farm or fall festival for some good old fashioned fun. Pony rides, hay bales and tractor rides are all worthy to become fall family traditions. Your children will discover the joy and challenge of climbing to the top of a hay bale.
Climb a Tree
With trees gradually losing their leaves and exposing their branches, they are practically begging you to climb them. This is the perfect opportunity to get up close and personal with leaves before they tumble to the ground.
Rake the Leaves
Have the children help you rake the fallen leaves into a big pile. Then you can jump in them a few times before bagging them up.
Visit an Orchard
Nothing beats the flavor and texture of a freshly picked apple. So take the time to visit an apple orchard this fall. After the trip, make sure you have picked enough apples for a few recipes. Your kids will enjoy helping you bake an apple pie as much as they will enjoy eating it.
Step inside a corn maze this fall. Corn mazes have become a tradition, much like haunted houses and hot tea. The nice thing about corn mazes is that they cater to kids and adults and offer a great family experience.
Nothing will thrill your children more than allowing them to explore a pumpkin patch and letting them pick out one to be their very own. The pumpkins can be used to decorate the front porch or you can carve them or you can use them in any number of recipes.
You don’t need a campfire to make smores, a simple toaster oven is quite sufficient. Smores are a fall treat that any kid will love.
Fall Scavenger Hunt
Take a walk through your neighborhood or the local park and create a list of fall-related items for your children to find. As they find them, have them place the items in a box. When you get home, go through the box and explain how each item they found represents fall.
