20 Outdoor Fall Activities for Kids

What are your favorite fall activities?

We are enjoying our first fall in New England.

We picked apples, took a hayride, ran through a hedge maze, ate apple cider donuts, read autumn-themed books, walked through the forest, and picked a pumpkin.

My daughter is actively learning about the changing of the seasons, how fruits and vegetables are grown, and how animals prepare for winter.

We often think of learning as an indoors activity while being outside is playtime, right?

Well, let’s take our learning outside this fall before the cold weather comes in winter.Shop Yoga Books for Kids | Kids Yoga Stories

To take advantage of being outside without having to wear winter clothes, I’ve gathered a list of fun fall-themed educational activities from my Kid Blogger friends to get your children learning, moving, and having fun.
