19 Fun Fall Activities to do with kids
AHH! The Smell of Fall is amazing isn’t it? It just gives off that crisp, fresh, fun smell and such a cozy feel! Fall or Autumn has always been my favorite season for various reasons. Maybe because I don’t like to get overheated and here in Utah the weather can get pretty hot, and maybe because I think the outfits to put on my kiddos are so much cuter! Ha, I don’t know why, in a nutshell I just LOVE Fall!
Because as a mom in can get a bit hectic around here indoors, and because it can be tough keeping the little ones entertained all day, I decided to put together a simple list to keep kids entertained while enjoying the crisp weather before the snow comes.

Fun Fall Activities
How can you go through Fall without carving a pumpkin? I know this can get a little difficult with kids so you can always give them markers, stickers, and stamps to decorate their pumpkin if you prefer.
A stroll on a beautiful mountain trail can only do good.
These are super fun for the kids and it can be a joy watching them enjoying them so much.
These are fun because you can let your kids run! But you need to also be a faster runner to keep up with them and not lose track of them.
If you bring the kiddos you may want it to be kid friendly.
Leaf collecting or hunting
When I was young my mother would always bring home a giant bouquet of fall leaves from the mountains to keep in a vase at our home. So beautiful! and the kids enjoy finding the most pretty branches.
Get those Family Pictures done:)
The beautiful mountains make for the best family pictures. Its Ok not to get a pro. ask a friend to take the pictures.
Make a leaf pile
This seems like a must in my book!
Do leaf stenciling ( Get cool leafs and put them under a paper, then get crayons (lay them on there sides) and lightly go over the paper. This makes for pretty art!)
My mother used to do this with me when I was a kid. It can be so much fun!

Build a stick fort in the mountains while enjoying the leaves

Take some time with family this season. There is nothing better than family and when we are old and all the kids are moved away these are the memories we will cherish the most.
