Celebrating Fall as a Family

10-Ways-to-celebrate-fall-as-a-family

Today, I swept all the dead leaves off of our back porch. There were a lot of leaves and a lot of obstacles; it took most of an hour. The girls turned my bucket of rainwater into a mound of bubbles (found some leftover bubble solution) and doled it out in every plastic cup and watering can they could find. They played and squealed until they were both soaking wet, and we had to come inside. (Because really, it’s not cold, but it’s not warm enough to be outside and wet.)

Fall is the perfect time to encourage exploration, experimentation, and curiosity in your kids. Free, unstructured time gives their brains a chance to process and expand on what they’re experiencing, so make sure you include lots of that, but take the time to plan some Big Day activities, too.
