15 Ways to Enjoy Fall with Your Toddler
“Autumn carries more gold in its pocket than all the other seasons.” ~Jim Bishop
Fall is my absolute favorite season. The smell of burning leaves. The crunch of a freshly picked apple. The warmth of a hand-knit hat. The golden hue of yellow, orange, and red that falls upon the trees. What is there not to love about fall? Fall is even better when spent with your family, making lasting memories. Here are my favorite toddler-approved fall activities.
Throw rocks into a pond or lake.
Take photos of your child playing in the leaves.
Collect leaves and other treasures on a nature walk.
Make leaf puppets with the leaves you collected on your nature walk.
Paint a handprint art canvas.
Have your toddler help you make fall chocolate bark.
Read a book about pumpkins and then teach your child fall-related signs.
Host a not-so-scary dress-up party.
Have your tot help you create a fall-friendly meal.
Go apple picking.
Take photos of your child in their Halloween costumes (after Halloween, in daytime light).
Go to a football game to see the marching band.
Find a greenhouse or farm and walk through the mums. Toddlers love all the colors and smelling the flowers.
Go on a hay ride and learn about the animals on a farm.
Avoid the danger of pumpkin carving and paint them instead.
