Looking for things to do this Fall? Look no further we have a brilliant 30 day bucket list of fun and easy activities to keep kids occupied in fall. Pick the ones you like best or do the whole list. Happy Fall!
1.) Pick conkers - and then play conkers. Who picked the hardest one?
2.) Make an apple pie
3.) Carve a pumpkin
4.) Watch a Halloween movie
5.) Paint some rocks - there are some great rock painting kits. Once you've painted some rocks, take a walk around your neighbourhood and leave them for neighbours and other children to find.
6.) Jump in the leaves
7.) Go to the park
8.) Drink hot chocolate - You can do this indoors or outdoors.
9.) Dance to a Halloween playlist - check out Spotify or Amazon Music, they normally put together Halloween playlists. YouTube is another great place to listen to Halloween songs. Some ideas of songs include Monster Mash by Bobby Pickett, Thriller by Michael Jackson and Somebody's Watching Me by Rockwell.
10.) Make a Fall Scrapbook
11.) Make a costume - create a homemade costume for Halloween.
12.) Go on a night walk. Young kids love a night walk because they don't often go outdoors after dark.

18.) Collect pinecones - then display them at home or use them for a fall craft. Painting pinecones to decorate your home is fun.
19.) Listen to spooky stories - make up your own or find them on the internet or in a book.
20.) Find spider webs - go on a hunt around your home and see how many spider websyou can find!!
21.) Go to the woods - and find the biggest stick you can. My kids love finding sticks. They make great outdoor toys. They can be lightsabers, a walking stick or just used to rummage through the leaves.
22.) Go on a bike ride
23.) Climb a tree
24.) Make muffins
25.) Decorate your home for fall or Halloween - use pinecones and make a leaf wreath.

29.) Go on a scavenger hunt - make a quick list of items to look for and find on a fall walk. Some ideas you can put on your list include conquers, pinecones, a red leaf and an acorn.
30.) Go bat watching - this is a great thing to do at dusk. It's fun to watch the bats come out and see how many you can fine.
