The end of October often marks half term for many UK schools. If you’re helping out with childcare you might be looking for autumn activities to do with the grandkids.  We’ve put together some fun and cost-effective activities to suit a range of ages and abilities, so you can teach little ones about the world around them and take a walk down memory lane yourself.



Grab your wellies and scarf, and take the kids for a walk. Walking has many physical benefits and spending time in nature offers many benefits to mental wellbeing. Enjoy the beauty of the autumnal leaf colours, and teach your grandkids to look out for signs of the changing season. For older children, you might want to talk about hibernating animals and watch for migrating birds. For little ones, you may just want to enjoy the sensory aspects of your surroundings, from the crunch of fallen leaves underfoot to the bright reds, oranges, and yellows on the trees around you, or splash in puddles and warm up at home with a mug of hot chocolate.  TOP TIP: If you use a mobility aid to get around, check in advance that the route is wheelchair friendly.


If you remember the days of having a ’29er’, pass your conker hardening tips onto the grandkids. From soaking in vinegar to coating in clear varnish, let them experiment with any conkers you can find and show them how to play a match to defeat Grandad with a ‘none-er’ and ‘stringsies’. Alternatively, you might want to have a go at painting and decorating any conkers you collect or use them to play a game of bowls.


Fallen leaves come in a range of shapes, sizes, colours, and textures. This makes them the perfect material for getting creative, without the mess of using finger paints. Gather leaves from the garden (make sure they are dry) and pick your favourites to arrange and stick onto paper. Create leaf monsters or a pretty collage to take home.


The days of hacking at turnips are long gone since the arrival of spoon-friendly pumpkins in recent years. Pumpkins are a fantastic way to decorate doorsteps during Autumn, especially when using a spooky design for Halloween. Pick a good size pumpkin and cut out a lid shape. Using a spoon and bowl, scoop out the messy insides (you might want to save the seeds for planting in the garden next year), and carefully use a knife to cut out your design (adult supervision essential). Then, add a tealight and voila.


On rainy days, there’s nothing more comforting than the smell of fresh baking coming from the kitchen. Use seasonal fruits like apples and pears to make spiced warming fruit crumbles served with creamy custard. Little hands can help with measuring out sugar, and crumbling butter and flour together in a bowl. The messier it is, the more fun they’ll have. Teach them a valuable skill while making memories to treasure for a lifetime.

If you have the grandkids over and want to make the most of your time with them, our stairlifts can help you to open up your home to the possibility of sleepovers and more. With safety features to prevent little ones from injury, find out more about our range of affordable new and reconditioned straight and curved stairlifts on 0800 644 7766 to speak to our team.
