Ideas For Continuing To Make The Most Of Your Garden This Autumn

August 12, 2019 19 comments

Autumn brings a change in weather and arguably makes enjoying the outdoors much more fun! There are lots of puddles to be jumped in and piles of leaves to be kicked.

Sleep Under the Stars

A great way to do this is to camp in your garden! There are few better ways to get close to nature than camping. Remember that nights can turn cold quickly for little ones so be sure to pack warm clothing.

Get Out Your Sketchbooks

Autumn is truly one of the most visually stunning times of the year. Find a comfortable spot in your garden and capture the moment together forever!

Collect Seeds

This is a fantastic time to harvest seeds from your garden to grow into free plants, and children can get involved too. 

Make A Collage

Challenge the children to forage for some natural materials to make a beautiful autumn collage. Using leaves, twigs and paints they can make a beautiful picture that would look perfect stuck to the fridge. Use appropriately autumnal paint colours such as reds, oranges and browns to really make it feel seasonal!

Pumpkin Carving & Decorating

Pumpkin carving is always a fun family activity. However, if you’re not up to carving this year remember that you can always paint them instead. Their big orange appearance make them the perfect canvas for a seasonal painting and a great excuse for the kids to splash the paints around. Challenge them to paint autumnal animals, Halloween phantoms and other pretty pictures.

Build A Den Challenge

Head out into the garden and help the kids build dens to spend an afternoon picnicking in. A top tip is to use a tree as a base and build outwards using sticks to make a sturdy structure. Next layer up a roof using crunchy leaves and you’ll have the perfect woodland den in no time! You could always liven it up by making it a competition, you can play judge and decide whose den is the best.
