Fall is here and the leaves are down! Here are 5 Fall Activities to Add to Your Weekend Itinerary!

1) Create a big leaf pile

Have the kids work together to build "the largest leaf pile!" At the end, they can all jump in to enjoy this childhood classic!

2) Leaf hunter

Need to have some outside time during online schooling? Take the kids outside for them to become leaf hunters! Have them work together to find the brightest leaf in the yard. The prize? A fun tasty fall treat such as baked apple chips!

3) Leaf sensory bags

After the kids collect the brightest leaves they can find, turn them into a science experiment! What you'll need is:

  • A sealable bag
  • Cooking oil or Baby Oil
  • Glitter
  • Sequins
  • Food coloring

Place everything in the bag and you're ready to go!

4) Leaf stamps

Do you have leftover leaves? Grab some construction paper and washable paint to create leaf stamps! Paint the leaves before pressing them down on paper to create a masterpiece. Want the creativity with less mess? Swap the paint out with crayons. Places the paper on top of the leaf and color over it to transfer the details of the leaf to the paper! 

5) Bake with family! 

After a long day of crafting, bake a delicious healthy snack! Apple Chips are easy to make and are tasty as well! Here's what you'll need: 

  • Apples
  • Cinnamon (or Cinnamon Sugar) 
  • Oven or dehydrator 
  • Parchment paper

Here's how to make them:

- Core and slice the apples. Lightly sprinkle with cinnamon powder.

- Arrange slices on your dehydrator tray and dry at 115 degrees until the apples are completely dry, but not hard and brittle. 115 degrees will make this a “raw” food recipe.

- If using the oven, set to the lowest temperature and arrange apple slices on baking sheets lined with parchment paper. You can leave the oven door slightly cracked open to reduce the oven temp while baking. Bake until the apples are dry, but not hard.

Enjoy!
