Autumn Outdoor Activities for your Little Ones


Autumn's here, and the great outdoors are calling! But what's a parent to do when the weather turns brisk, and the leaves start to fall? Fear not, for we've got you covered with our fun-filled list of outdoor activities to enjoy with your kiddos. Let's dive in and soak up all the enchantment this season has to offer!


Experience the Wonders of Autumn with a Walk in the Forest

The perfect temperature and the breathtaking nature during this time of year make a forest walk in Autumn a must-do. If you're lucky enough to have some rain, let your kids enjoy some puddle splashing. It's a simple and old school activity that brings them so much joy (sometimes we wonder why). As you wander through the forest, look up and  take time to appreciate the changing colours of the leaves. The vibrant orange, yellow, and red hues create a stunning backdrop for family photos. You may even catch a glimpse of some wildlife, as many animals are busy preparing for the winter ahead. When you're finished with your walk, warm up with a cup of hot chocolate or a lovely pint in your local pub. You never know, there might even be a fire! 

Creating Beautiful Wreaths and Decorations by Collecting Natural Materials

Kids love making arts and crafts, and combining this with their love of nature is the perfect activity. Collect leaves, acorns, and pine cones to make a special wreath or decor that will brighten up your home. Not only is this a fun activity for kids, but it is also a great way to teach them about the environment and the importance of sustainability. By using natural materials, you are reducing waste and creating something beautiful at the same time. Plus, the possibilities are endless! So, next time you're taking a walk outdoors, bring a bag and gather some materials to create your own unique and eco-friendly decorations.

Discover the Enchantment of Fairy Trails!

In the UK, there are many fairy trails to choose from, each with its own unique charm. Follow the fairy dust and locate each door for a stress-free hike through the forest. Don't forget to warm up your vocals for the added bonus of impersonating the fairies! It's the perfect environment to let your imagination run wild and truly immerse yourself in the magical world of fairies. All of these trails are suitable for families and children, as they often are buggy friendly, making for an exciting and educational day out.  Whether you're a believer in fairies or not, these trails are a must-visit for anyone who appreciates nature and a touch of magic.

Exploring the Great Outdoors: Hunting for Wild Mushrooms

Looking for a fun activity for kids to enjoy? Mushroom hunting and gathering is a fantastic option. However, it's important to remember that picking mushrooms can harm the fragile ecosystem, and it can be challenging to distinguish between different types. To ensure a safe and successful mushroom hunting experience, it's recommended to go with an experienced guide or take a class to learn about mushroom identification. In addition, it's crucial only to pick mushrooms that are fully grown and have visible spores, as these are signs that they are mature and safe to eat. Remember to always leave some mushrooms behind to ensure the sustainability of the ecosystem. With these precautions in mind, mushroom hunting can be a fun and educational activity for the whole family to enjoy.

Check out your local Pick-Your-Own!

Visiting a pick-your-own farm can be a fun activity for the whole family. Not only do you get to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine, but you also get to choose the exact produce you want to take home. It's a great way to teach children about where their food comes from and to encourage healthy eating habits. In the Autumn, many pick-your-own farms offer apple and pumpkin picking, making it the perfect activity to get into the Halloween spirit. So get your oven warmed up, pumpkin pie here we come!
