Go Apple Picking
Fall brings in the season of fresh, crisp apples! Check out your local apple picking center and plan a trip to go pick some fresh apples. Take part in a wagon ride as most apple picking locations have a wagon ride on hand to bring you out to the orchards. Once you are done picking apples, you can come home to prepare some yummy apple recipe desserts and snacks with the kids!
This is a perfect way to have the kids clean up the yard while having fun. Get out there with the rakes and kids and rake the lawn up into a pile of huge leaves. Be sure to remove all sticks and other debris from the pile. Once your leaf pile is safe of debris and other pointy items, you may put the rakes aside and run to jump in those leaves. This is sure to make for some laughter and happiness with the kids this Fall.
