Labour Day has passed, which means that fall is officially upon us. As sorry as I am to see summer go, however, I am even more excited about the fun fall activities to do with kids!

Need some ideas for making the most of this beautiful time of year with your family? Here are 20 fun activities to do with kids this fall.

20 Fun Activities to Do with Kids this Fall

1. Go Apple Picking

2. Use a Crayon to Do Leaf Rubbings

How to do this? Simply place a leaf under a piece of paper, remove the paper from a crayon, and lightly rub the side of the crayon over the paper.

3. Jump in Leaf Piles

4. Read Fall-themed Stories

“Apple Farmer Annie” by Monica Wellington, “Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf” by Lois Ehlert and “The Little Scarecrow Boy” by Margaret Wise Brown are three awesome choices.

5. Make Fall-themed Wreaths with Paper Plates and Colored Tissue Paper

6. Visit the Pumpkin Patch

7. Find Your Way Through a Corn Maze

8. Sort Leaves to Learn About Color

9. Take a Hay Ride

If you can’t find a hayride near you, at least pull the kids around the neighborhood in the wagon. Bonus points if you go through every leaf pile on the way.
