10 Free things to do in Autumn or Fall with your children

I adore Autumn.  The changing colours, the  crisp weather and the golden sunlight.   Something about this time of year makes me want to get out with my children and make the most before the weather changes to our dire UK winters.

So I am sharing with you my favorite free things to do with kids this Autumn.

  1. Go jumping in piles of leaves.  Crisp dry leaves are best. Whilst you are there why not collect some of the different coloured leaves that you can see to preserve at home.
  2. Go on a woodland walk and treasure hunt 
  3. Go on a bike or scooter ride.  
  4. Go to the park after school.  Take a small flask of hot chocolate so that you can all warm up.
  5. Go collecting conkers and then learn how to play conkers.  You can even create your own trophy.
  6. Make a nature display with treasure collected on your walks
  7. Fly a kite
  8. Make leaf and bark rubbings or print with leaves you have collected
  9. Make apple prints
  10. Go on a leaf hunt.
What are your favorite free activities for this season?


  1. Lovely! We like to make huge piles of leaves then jump in them.

  2. Great list there. We are always on the hunt for new, free, ideas of things to do :-)


I love comments and will try to respond to all
