Falling For The Season #SafeConBritaxFallFun

I love when the weather changes from the heat that you cannot stand to the wonderful brisk wind in your face.  I love to see the leaves turn and fall.  Though I have never been able to play in the leaves like I have seen on TV, I have always associated that with Fall.  And is still on my list of things to do in the Fall, so if you see me in your front lawn, rolling around in your leaves, don't call the police.

 #1-Roll around, toss'em up, and play with Fall leaves

Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall....

Right when Summer is ending, you see little signs of Fall everywhere you go.  One sign of Fall is always pumpkins, pumpkins, and more pumpkins.  I like taking the kids to pumpkin patches.  If you have never been to a pumpkin patch, you should add this to your list.  There are pumpkin patches everywhere.

#2-Pumpkin Patch

And after you have hit the pumpkin patch after picking just the right is time to decorate it.  Paint it, carve it, or whatever you want...this is a fun activity that even the littlest of your little ones can do.  Toddler Activity 101 can include little pumpkins which they can pick out themselves.  Then decorate with their fingers or paint brushes with adult supervision.  This activity helps with motor skills, learning colors, textures, and family fun all in one.

#3-Decorate Pumpkin

Right when October hits, scary movies start to play over and over.  A scene that scares me is when the characters get lost in the cornfield and the scary attacker is running after them with some kind of weapon.  I always wondered if I could find my way out.  Challenge accepted, and guess what, bombed.  We got lost in the corn maze for 3 hours, but never found the exit.  We evenly went the exact same way we came in, but we had so much fun.  The only person who conquered his way out was my teen.

#4 Corn Maze

Now that you stepped into the cornfield what do you see....tractors.  Have you ever taken a ride on a tractor?  I never had.  I did not grow up on a farm.  The farm we actually were at this weekend had a tractor pulling little buggies made for 2 to ride in.  It was so cute, and fun for my toddler.

#5-Ride a Tractor
Have you ever been to a Fall Festival?  You can find all of these activities and more at your nearest Fall Festival.  Churches, neighborhoods, schools, and even the Zoo get in on all the fun.  You do not have to go to the Zoo to check out the animals.  Some Fall Festivals include traveling petting zoos for the kiddos to enjoy.

#6-Attend a Fall Festival

The crisp chill that a windy day can bring is just a reminder of the wonderful season we are in.  I love to wear scarfs, hats, and bring on the boots.  Take a break from it all this Fall.  As the leaves turn and fall, take your children for walk outside instead of in the mall.  With all these fun activities I am sure your family will have a ball!
Have you fallen for Fall?  What activities do you like to do in the Fall?  Am I missing something on my list?
