Fall Activities for Kids

Fall Activities for Kids

There are a variety of pumpkin patches, corn mazes, hay ride events, and apple picking events in the area. Opportunities are all around-just do a little searching, and you’ll be sure to find an event going on somewhere around your neighborhood that your kids will love.

Play Outside

Outdoor fall sports like football are a great way to enjoy the weather. Another activity is to visit a playground at a
local park or school. Once the leaves begin to really fall, what better way to enjoy time right in the back yard than
making a leaf pile and then jumping in it.

Stick Hats

Send the kids outdoors to gather an assortment of sticks for this project. The sticks should be from 9 to 12 inches long. You’ll also need string. Begin tying the sticks together, joining them at the bottom and at the top. Keep adding sticks until the circumference of all of the sticks fits around your kid’s head. Pull the ends together and tie. If the sticks scratch your little guy’s head, glue a piece of felt to the inside of the stick hat for padding.

Experience Nature

This weather is perfect to just be outdoors and experiencing fresh air. Take a walk, go for a hike, or go on a bike ride.
Camping out can be great fun for the kids, whether it is at a park or just in your own backyard! Children also love to
collect leaves-bring their favorites home and use them for craft projects. Check out the local area parks and see if they have a nature program to participate in, or if you’re into some real adventure.

Outdoor Arts and Crafts

Fall is a great time for making fun arts and crafts with things such as acorns, leaves, and pinecones. To make a pinecone bird feeder, simply spread peanut butter on a pinecone and cover it with birdseed. Hang it from a tree, and watch the birds flock. Other autumn themed arts and crafts that are easy for kids to assemble include a leaf mobile with leaves and sticks or an autumn wreath.


This only happens one night out of the year, but participating in trick-or-treating is a great way for your toddler or
pre-k kids to get outside, make new friends, and have fun dressing up as anything they have ever wanted to be.

The best foods to carry along for a hiking trip are the ones that don’t require refrigeration. Jerky and nuts are lightweight and straightforward to carry, require no refrigeration and so are a good source of protein and fat. Crackers provide simple carbohydrates for just about any quick burst of energy. Top the crackers with peanut butter, canned tuna or canned chicken to produce a complete meal.

Camping Food

Ideally, you have to eat the fresh foods on the first nights your vacation, before the foods have a chance to spoil. For longer camping trips, bring along dehydrated and dried foods. Powdered milk and powdered eggs work as substitutes for fresh eggs and is rehydrated with water for cooking. Oatmeal provides fiber and complicated carbohydrates to give you energy throughout the day. Boxed macaroni and cheese and boxed, seasoned white rice mixes provide carbohydrates for energy. Add in some dehydrated vegetable pieces and dehydrated meat bits to produce a complete meal. Add a little vegetable oil for the meals to take care of fat needs. For midday snacks, eat granola packs and jars of fruit cocktail.

Christmas Poem for the Holidays

Christmas Poem for the Holidays

Christmas Joys

Evergreen boughs that fill our homes
With fragrant Christmas scents,
Hearts full of the loving glow
That Christmas represents;
Christmas cookies, turkeys stuffed,
Festive holly berry,
Little faces bright with joy,
Family members being merry;
Parties, songs, beribboned gifts,
Silver bells that tinkle,
Christmas trees and ornaments,
Colorful lights that twinkle;
Relatives waiting with open arms
To smile and hug and kiss us;
They are some of the special joys
Which come along with Christmas.

The True Christmas

So stick up ivy and also the bays,
And then restore the heathen ways.
Green reminds you of the spring,
Though this excellent day denies the thing.
And mortifies our planet and all
But your wild revels, and loose hall.
Would you wear flowers, and roses strow
Blushing upon your breasts’ warm snow,
That very dress your lightness will
Rebuke, and wither in the ill.
The brightness of this very day we owe
Not unto music, masque, nor show:
Nor gallant furniture, nor plate;
But towards the manger’s mean estate.
His life while here, in addition to birth,
Was but a cheque to pomp and mirth;
And all man’s greatness you might see
Condemned by His humility.
Then leave your open house and noise,
To welcome Him with holy joys,
And also the poor shepherd’s watchfulness:
Whom light and hymns from heaven did bless.
That which you abound with, cast abroad
To people who want, and ease your load.
Who empties thus, brings more in;
But riot is both loss and sin.
Dress finely what comes not around the corner,
And then you keep your Christmas right.
