Fall Fun for Kids
What do this fall in Toronto and surrounding areas…
The leaves may be falling, but fun is still on the rise in Toronto this autumn. With a backdrop of colorful leaves and an array of events to mark the beginning of the holiday season, rake in the excitement with these fall activities for kids.
Before you know it, your weekends will be full of chill, extra-curricular activities, and homework. So pack a fall picnic lunch (weather permitting) and head out to your nearest conservation park for a day devoted to outdoor fun.
Organize a family hike or a scavenger hunt. During this outing, encourage your kids to pay special attention to the sights and sounds of autumn, whether it be the rustling of leaves, the changing trees, or the call of the migrating birds.
Before heading out, check with the park to see if you are allowed to collect twigs, leaves, acorns, pine cones, etc… Take lots of photographs to captures these moments. Bring a sketch pad for the kids to draw fall motifs, bugs or animals, or to trace leaves.
