Fun Fall Learning Activities for Children

Posted By Jessica Fisher On September 21, 2010 @ 1:31 am In Baking,Cakes,Desserts,Fall,Falling for Fun,Family Fun,Recipes | 12 Comments


Fall has always been a favorite season of mine. Pumpkin patches, apple picking and crunching leaves work together to create an atmosphere of fun and exploration for children. Over the years we’ve collected acorns, gone on hay rides, and gone apple tasting. I’ve even broken some rules and climbed apple trees that weren’t supposed to be climbed.

Oh yes, yes, I did.

Between all the outdoor fun you can have with your kids during fair weather and the great books, crafts, and snacks to make inside, you’re set for making beautiful memories this autumn.

Get Reading

Get Crafting


Get Cooking

  • Involve the kids in helping to make Taco Soup [12] in the crockpot.
  • Make Slab Apple Pies [13] – so delicious and so easy for kids to help
  • Apple Crowns [14] are a healthier alternative to ice cream sundaes.
  • Decorate some fall flower cupcakes.

Get Out!

  • Walk through the woods and collect leaves and acorns.
  • Go apple picking.
  • Visit the pumpkin patch.
  • Rake leaves and jump in the piles.
  • Have a bonfire and toast marshmallows.

What does your family enjoy doing in the fall?
