The holidays are right around the corner, and kids know it! As their excitement grows, they’re likely to get antsy. How can parents help kids stay focused in these last few weeks of fall? Simple: get playing with them! Check out these fall activities for families from The Fun-E Farm in Kingston, NY!
- Get Crafty. Kids love to get messy, and grandparents love to get hand-made gifts, so it’s the perfect time to pull out the craft supplies and get creative. Try a garland of leaves for the window or a simple apple tree craft for little ones. Have a party or bake sale coming up? Whip up some pumpkin chocolate chip muffins! Cooking or baking is a great way to solidify the math kids learn in school. Plus, you wind up with delicious treats at the end!
- Go on a Scavenger Hunt. Think of objects you’re likely to find in your neighborhood–a parent with a blue stroller, a house with a red door, the mail carrier, specific dogs–and put together a scavenger hunt. Have kids take pictures (with the permission of the people in the pictures, of course), or collect small objects like colorful leaves, fall flowers, etc. Then reward your intrepid little hunters with treats or an afternoon out!
And of course, don’t forget to visit The Fun-E Farm! Kids need exercise to stay focused and healthy! Bring them down for an afternoon of bouncing around to keep their brains and bodies happy. Keep an eye on our specials for great seasonal discounts!
