40+ Fall Outdoor Play Activities for Kids
Now, even with all these awesome ideas it is still important to remember to dress properly. Dressing in layers is important in the fall. The breeze might be chilly, but the sun will make you warm. So, wear a jacket with a sweater. Wear light gloves and proper footwear. If it has rained recently, don’t forget to wear boots. Bring along a towel so you can clean off before getting back in the car or heading back into the house. Preparation is all so very important when it come to outdoor play with kids.
