101 Fall Activities to Do with your Kids

101 Fall Activities to Do with your Kids! Are you ready!? Fall is (almost) here! Fall is my favorite time of year to do activities with the kids because there’s SO MUCH to do!! When I was a little kid my mom would come up with Fall Adventures on the weekends and it was always so much fun to see what we would do!

101 Fall Activities to Do with Kids

Every weekend it was something different and it was always exciting for us as kids! I want to do that for my kids, especially with them getting older – it’s even more important to me to do as much as I can with them as possible!

Every year I love to create a major bucket list of things to do in the Fall with my family. It’s not always easy coming up with a ton of things, but I made it my mission to list out 101 things! I know that not all of these will be able to do, but I’ll feel happy if I can get through a good bunch!

I thought it would be fun to share 101 Fall Activities to Do with your Kids with YOU! Print this list out and starting crossing things out as you go! I’d love to see what you can get through and also anything that I may have missed, too!
