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.

Trick-or-Treating

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.

I’ll always feel this joy, this bliss, this peace,
If you’ll be my love forever, Valentine.

Summer Outdoor Games for Adults

Summer is a great time of year especially if you love the outdoors. It always seems that some of my funnest and funniest memories are outside camping, hiking, watching sporting events and of course playing games with family and friends. I have found that even as I grow older some of those great backyard games I used to love have not lost their luster; actually I am just quite a bit more accurate now or I don’t have to stand 5 feet in front of everyone else! One thing that I love about all of these outddor games is that they are really portable and you can take them anywhere. Here are my top four suggestions for outdoor Summer games plus a few more at the end for good measure!

Summer Outdoor Games for Adults

Summer Outdoor Games for Adults

Water Bucket Relay

Here we go depending on if any of these adults have decided to have a beer or two this game could get just as messy as the last game. Here is how you play the water bucket relay: there needs to be a starting line at one end of the yard. On the opposite side there needs to be a line of buckets. Each player on the relay team takes a big gulp of water and walks, quickly, without running to the teams bucket. Once she is at the teams bucket she will spit the water into the bucket and race back to her team. The first team who fills their bucket with water wins the relay.

Watermelon Carving Contest

You will use some basic pumpkin carving tools to turn a large watermelon into a beautiful carved masterpiece. Couples can work together on their watermelon carving project. Once the carving is over there needs to be some people judging who has the very best watermelon carved masterpiece of the shin dig.

Egg Bocce

This adult outdoor game is a little on the messy side but is sure to entertain the adults. Bocce will require one small target ball as well as several larger tossing balls. The small ball will be thrown onto a flat surface, like a lawn, then each player will tried to toss his ball as close to the small one as possible. Each player is going to neer will then to sign his eggs to “personalize” his ball. Each player will take their turn tossing their raw egg at the small target to get as close to the target ball all without breaking the egg. This could get very messy being as they are raw eggs and can certainly break easily.

Seed Spitting

Might sound like a hillbilly gross idea, but you can have some run with this. In reality though guys how much explanation is needed when we’re talking about spitting seeds? Yeah, that’s what I thought easy peesy lemon squeezy. Ok well you get the picture spit your seed the furthest you will be the winner of the seed spitting contest.

Horseshoes

This is a classic outdoor summer adult game, and pretty much everyone knows how to play. Get some horse shoes, metal stakes and you’re in business. You don’t need the whole set up with sand to play a game in the backyard of your friends or family members house.

Ice cream Eating contest

This will bring the adults back to feeling like a kid again surely. Get a big bowl of ice cream and get to eating. Now you can make the way people have to eat their ice cream your choice. Let them either use some utensils or heck only their mouth as their eating utensil.

The Handyman Basket

A ruler, sandpaper or even a box of nails can fill the basket. Wrap the basket in colored cellophane making a bow out of a measuring tape to top it off.

The Pampering Basket

For the woman who needs to take some time for herself, fill a gift basket with spa products, a manicure or pedicure kit, colorful nail polish, a bottle of nice perfume, fuzzy slippers, a relaxation music CD, some fashion or beauty magazines, scented candles and a yoga or Pilates starter set. Based on your budget, you might want to splurge and include a gift certificate for a facial or perhaps a day at the spa.

Tea & Coffee Lover Easter Baskets

Want something less romantic? Consider using a coffee basket filled with an assortment of specialized coffees and coffee syrups and sugars. Give a small coffee press and some gourmet coffee stirrers, and you have an ideal basket for coffee lovers. For that tea lovers in your life, have a few ounces of a favorite variety of loose tea, and put in a small decorative bag. Set the bag, a tea ball plus some fancy sugar cubes inside a special tea cup and saucer, devote a small decorative box and you’ve got a sure winner.

The Gamer Basket

For the gamer in mind, fill an Easter basket with scratch tickets and lucky charms. A lucky penny, a keychain having a four-leaf clover or a pair of dice can give the player a feeling of luck. When they enjoy a good bingo game, then add bingo markers and a magnifier to see the numbers around the game cards up close. If it’s the casino scene they like the most, give them plastic eggs full of quarters to play the slots with. Fill a jar saying “bingo money” with jelly beans to consume now and use the jar in order to save coins for bingo money later. Toss in a blow-up seat cushion for comfort, and don’t your investment hand sanitizer for handling the money they will win. Wrap the basket in Easter cellophane and finish it off with a big purple bow.

Add some gourmet cheeses, olives, summer sausage and your favorite beverage, and toss some gourmet petit-fours or specialty chocolates in to the basket. You now have a romantic Easter Brunch Basket that may be treasured and used again later on.
