It’s fall time!
What does that mean? In most areas, the weather grows colder and the days become shorter while leaves change colors taking on a beautiful hue of red, orange and yellow. It’s also an excellent time for families to enjoy each other and share in the holiday season. So what kind of activities can you and your children enjoy during this season?
Pack up a basket with a thermos of hot chocolate, some crackers and cheese and head to the park. Lay out a blanket and enjoy a cooler day with the family. It’s low cost and fun. While you’re at the park, play catch or soccer. If your children are young, play with them on the playground.
Even after Halloween, it’s a fun time to pick out a pumpkin at the store, set up the kitchen table and have a fun pumpkin carving contest. If you’d rather not make it a contest, then just have fun as a family. If you have little ones, give them washable markers to draw on their pumpkin. Make some hot chocolate or cinnamon tea and don’t forget to bake your pumpkin seeds, salt them and enjoy them while you create your masterpiece.
