Fun Fall Activities to get us Moving!

Need some ideas to get you motivated and moving with your kids?

Here are our favorite physical activties for the Fall:
  • Leaf hunt or nature walk
  • Pumpkin Patch or Apple Picking
  • Carve or paint pumpkins outside
  • Local Festivals or fair: walk from booth to booth, let the kids enjoy the bounce activites or petting zoos
  • Farmers Market:  pick fresh produce and take it home to cook. Talk about the importance of eating healthy.
  • Parks and/or Playgrounds: try to encourage your child to try something new such as the hanging on the monkey bars or pumping those legs on the swings.
  • Have a picnic and then play chase...once your food settles of course.  
  • Backyard BBQ with Games-Hula Hoops and Hop Scotch are favorites at our house.
  • Ride bikes or stroll the neighborhood-try to go a different route every time.
  • Walk your dog-they need exercise too!
  • If you are stuck inside? Play hide and go seek, have a pillow fight or build a fort.
