The first day of Fall is Sunday and we are already beginning to see the weather cool down a bit… yippee! So begins another season of fun! Some of you have shared that you enjoy posts regarding ideas of things to do around town so this post is dedicated to that. Fall brings to mind pumpkins and farms and there’s nothing better than taking your child out to explore nature.
I just realized that my youngest (poor little 3rd child) has never been to a pumpkin patch. Whoops. But, try taking a family of 5 to a local pumpkin patch and see how much money you spend! Which is why I love the link above. Click on it and it will take you to a coupon for Johnson Farms Pumpkin Patch… 50% off! Hurry, though, the offer ends on Sunday.
One of my favorite fall events is the Overland Park Fall Festival. If you know me or have read my past posts, you can probably guess why: cheap, easy, and entertaining! This is a large craft show with live (free) music from local artists, lots of entertainment for the kids including puppet shows and displays set up from local companies like Mad Science. It’s a win situation for everyone!
Fall also brings to mind apples! The link above will take you to some local farms that allow you to come and pick your own apples. Please always make sure you check the daily picking report before venturing out!
Speaking of apples, Louisburg Cider Mill is also a fun place to visit for fall and they also have an annual festival. Check out information on that event below. I highly recommend their cider donuts!
There are so many great local events and places to explore! But, don’t forget how much fun just hanging out at home can be too! Baking together at home is always fun. Children usually especially enjoy pumpkin bread! Or, after visiting the pumpkin patch (or the local grocery store) for pumpkins, let your children decorate them with paint!
Just a reminder, too, that Aldersgate United Methodist Church has their own pumpkin patch beginning the week of September 29! Our own preschool Fall Festival is coming up on October 3, too.
What types of things does your family enjoy doing in the fall? We’d love to hear from you!
