Hey there readers! The fall season is approaching and if you’re like me, you’re looking for fun things to do with your kids, nieces and nephews and any other young children in your life. But if you're also like me, you don’t want to go broke in the process. So what fun activities Can you do with them that is still within your budget? Well, well everyone's budget is different here are my top three recommendations for fun fall activities that won't break the bank.
Clean up your yard and have fun in the process!
Now hear me out, while I know this doesn't necessarily sound fun, in the fall this is the perfect thing to do. While raking leaves and tidying up your backyard, you can encourage your children to pick out the leaves that are their favorite and use them for fun activities. You can give them some guidelines in terms of the leaves they should look for, kind of like a scavenger hunt. Task them with looking for red, orange and brown leaves and then later on you can incorporate it into some arts and crafts. You can encourage them to outline the leaves and color on their own, or you can do my personal favorite, get a hole puncher and punch holes in them and weave them together. They also double as great home decor.
Go apple picking
This one is a fan favorite. I mean, even if you don't love apples, who doesn't love picking them? Take your kids and let them run through the various apple trees and pick the ones that are their favorite. A lot of places either charge you by the bag or the weight, so if you don't want to go over budget by one or two bags per child and if it's by the weight set guidelines that they can pick 5 or 6 so that they stay within the budget.
Paint some pumpkins
I used to love doing this as a child and I'm pretty sure the little ones in your life will too. You can either take them to a pumpkin patch or your local supermarket and look for some pumpkins that are on sale. Stop by your local Michaels or Jo-Ann's Craft Store and then get some supplies. Let their imaginations run wild as they paint their Pumpkins. This can be Halloween themed or just a nice general fall theme. I also think they double nicely as the decor for Thanksgiving. Not only are you letting your child free artistic spirit out, but you're also saving some bucks on Going to Hobby Lobby.
