It's getting colder, the days are getting shorter and a lot of changes are taking place in nature. Then the best part is of course to experience nature up close and to be creative with what this tide brings. That's why these 7 most popular fall activities for your kids should be on your bucket list!

1. Outdoor playgrounds

It may be a bit colder in autumn, but especially at the beginning of autumn it is still nice to go to a playground for an afternoon. Make it a fun outing and put on a nice coat.

2. Take an autumn walk and look for mushrooms

The change in nature creates completely new colors. There are also various mushrooms that pop out of the ground. So take your children for an autumn walk to get some fresh air. It is also fun to collect chestnuts, acorns and pine cones, but more about that later in the article. You can also look for mushrooms. Download a search card from the internet with different mushrooms and go out with your child(ren) to look for them.

3. The petting zoo

In addition to nature, room has also been made for autumn in the animal world. Where birds migrate south and other animals prepare for colder periods. This is often taken into account at the petting zoo and it is therefore fun to visit a petting zoo.

4. Bird food or peanut wreath for the birds

Now that autumn is approaching, it is also becoming more difficult for the birds to find food. That's why it's fun to make your own bird food for the garden. For example, make a tasty pine cone snack with peanut butter or a super long peanut garland. Or go for a peanut wreath, for example. You can get busy with a bag of peanuts, an empty wreath and some wire. Click here for more bird food recipes.

5. Be creative with chestnuts and acorns

Let the children enjoy crafting with chestnuts and acorns that you collected during the autumn walk. For example, make dolls and animals with cocktail sticks and wool.

6. Let your child(ren) paint pine cones

The pine cones, which were also collected during the walk, are still very dull. That's why it's a lot of fun to paint pine cones and hang or place them as decoration in the house. An extra tip: to ensure that there are no bugs in the pine cones, you can bake them in the oven for a short time.

7. Pumpkin and more pumpkin

Finally, there are lots of fun things you can do with pumpkin. Of course you can hollow out the pumpkin and make nice figures in it. You can also make delicious dishes from the pieces you remove. Pumpkin soup or pumpkin risotto is especially delicious when it is colder and darker outside.
