5 Things To Do With Your Children During Fall Break

Fall Break is just around the corner! For some it may already be here. Although some people are sad summer is over, most are excited for the leaves to change colors and the cool crisp air in the evenings. It’s a love-hate relationship with the weather in October, mornings and evenings feel like Autumn but mid-day still feels like summer. Parents and children are eager for their first break after going back to school.

The school routine structure loosens up and the stress of having to drop off and pick up at school is lifted for a week. The best part of fall break is being able to spend time with the family, there are several events and fun activities scheduled in various business locales, parks, schools, and malls that the children as well as teenagers and adults will enjoy doing. Here are 5 fun things to do with your family during Fall Break:

1. Visit A Pumpkin Patch

Find a local pumpkin patch in your area to pick the best pumpkin for a Jack o’ Lantern. Some pumpkin patches can be found at a farm, and others are smaller and may take place at a local park or garden center.

2. Explore A Corn Maze

Children of all ages love a good ol’ corn maze! They’re a ton of fun and it’s a good way to bring out your child’s imagination. Make believe the family is lost or was chased into the field in the middle of nowhere. Have your child be the leader and ask them to “save” everyone and find the way out. Enjoy working together to find your way out and celebrate when you make it!

3. Halloween Costume Parties

What is Fall break without a Halloween party?

Children love to dress up into cute princesses and scary goblins for Halloween. Join the fun and dress up with them. Usually, schools or public libraries have fall festivals with music food, and costume contests that are free and open to the public. It’s quick and easy to find these events on by searching by city or zip code near you.
