It’s that time of year again. The leaves are changing, the weather’s starting to turn, and the Grandkids are soon to be off school. Getting to spend time with the family is priceless, but keeping the kids entertained can sometimes be a challenge. To make things easier, we’ve put together a list of the best tried and tested Autumnal activities you can do with your grandkids this half term – all of which are sure to put a smile on everyone’s face.
Get out in nature
Is there anything more satisfying than a crisp autumnal walk? Wrap up warm and soak up the last of the Autumnal sun while the kids have fun crunching around in the leaves. Why not round off the day nicely with a lovely warming cup of hot chocolate once you’re home? Sound like heaven to us!
Go pumpkin picking
With Halloween just around the corner, picking your perfect pumpkin is the perfect family-friendly activity. Visit your local farm or head out to your nearest Pumpkin Patch and make a day of it. The kids will revel in carving and decorating their pumpkins into all sorts of spooky designs once they’re home, too!
With a new season comes new opportunities for fun, and Autumnal art is a great way to spend the day. Getting crafty is the perfect way to spend quality time together – from leaf-picking and collecting conkers, to painting pinecones. What’s more, there are no rules here, so you can create your very own traditions you can bring back year after year.
Host a family film night
When rain is on the cards and the weather’s looking cold and gloomy, nothing quite beats getting cosy indoors. Grab your blankets, snuggle on the sofa, gather some snacks and watch a film together as a family. From Disney classics, to Netflix’s finest – there are lots to choose from.
With ‘The Great British Bake Off’ still popular as ever, there’s never been a better time to show off your baking skills! It’s the perfect opportunity to hand down your family recipes, or even pass on your knowledge of some baking classics like apple crumble or lemon drizzle cake. If you’re feeling more experimental, the kids will love making their own cupcakes and sneaking a taste as you go. You can even get creative with some spooky Halloween-themed biscuits – don’t forget the sprinkles!
