Host a cider stand

While hosting a lemonade stand is a popular summer activity, there’s no reason that your child can’t have a blast with a slight variation this fall. Pick a date, gather your supplies, and help your child host a fall cider stand right from your front yard. While many parents choose to let their tot give away cider for free to neighbors, others turn it into a learning experience and encourage their little one to raise money for a good cause they care about. 

Head to the pumpkin patch

While most pumpkin patches don’t open until the end of September or beginning of October, if your family has a busy schedule you’ll want to get this on the calendar now before your weekends fill up and you miss your chance to head to the local pumpkin patch. 

Schedule an orchard visit

Nothing says fall like a trip to the apple orchard where kids get to pick their own fruit. Most apple orchards are open for picking during August and September. Lot’s of family-friendly apple orchards also have activities and events for kids and families so it can be beneficial to look at their websites early to choose the best time to go. 

Make plans at an indoor pool

While the outdoor pools might be closing soon, there’s no reason your babe can’t keep enjoying the water all year long. Whether it’s a membership at a local indoor pool or weekly lessons in a near-by pool, make plans to help your child stay in the water year-round by looking into indoor pools in your area.
