30 fun fall activities for kids

Today I am sharing 30 fun Fall Activities for kids!  I love Fall and there are so many Autumn inspired crafts and activities for kids to fully enjoy Fall.

All of these crafts are simple and most of the supplies you need will be found in your home already.  I love crafting, but I like affordable crafts that are fun for my kids to do on their own.

Fun Fall Things To Do:

Autumn Hunt

Carve Pumpkins

Carving pumpkins is so much fun, but if your kids are little we loved using stickers!  We found some pumpkin decorating stickers that came with eyes and mouths.



Make some Halloween costumes!  We love getting creative and making our own silly costumes.


Apple Picking

Find all the local Fall activities in your neighborhood.  We have a local apple picking place that I can’t wait to try out.


Pumpkin Patch

Not all pumpkin patches are the same.  We have a local farm with a pumpkin patch where we can pick our own pumpkins.


Grow Pumpkins

This year we are growing pumpkins from seeds!  It is a lot of fun to watch these pumpkins double in size over and over again.


Trick or Treating

Since we are in the middle of a pandemic we are going to get creative with the trick-or-treating.  I have a few ideas!  Make a mini party at home with candy hidden around the house similar to an Easter egg hunt.

Drive by family and friends’ homes and collect candy through the window or just show off our costumes and have candy at home.



Conclusion Fall Activities for Kids

I hope these 30 activities help you to have a fun and memorable Fall or Autumn (depending on where you live).  We never seem to get bored with all there is to do each season. 

What is your favorite Autumn activity for kids?

      Thank you for catching that, I use Grammarly and I don’t know what happened. I had it spelled right a lot of times and then it must have changed it to that after I copied and pasted something. Even after I ran Grammarly again it did not pick up on that. I think I have found all the mistakes.

    Thanks for sharing these cute fall activities! I am looking for some fun things to do with my kids after school these days. I might have to use one of these as a treat after our upcoming pediatric dentist appointment. Thanks again!!!
