Go to a Pumpkin Patch. Pick your favorite. Take it home and decorate or make pumpkin seeds and pumpkin bread.
Go on a hayride!
Stuff a scarecrow.
Do leaf tracings. Find out what types you’ve collected.
Have your children rake up leaves (for money?). They jump in!
Have a harvest party. Include scarcrow making. Everyone brings an old shirt and pants. You supply hay, rope, scissors. Stuff sticking with hay for head. Make apples taffies. Play a word game using Fall words like “Harvest Time” to see how many smaller words they can find in it.
Learn sign language.
Do simple science experiments. Place celery in colored water to watch what happens overnight! Have tastes tests. Blindfold or not. Using all senses, tell the difference between salt, sugar, flour and baking powder.
