Happy October! 

What's your favorite fall tradition?

 We love to rake leaves and jump in them! Pumpkin patches, hay rides, mazes, pumpkin spice, it's all Fall! 

We love to get out and play backyard games all year but Fall opens up some cool opportunities. 

1 - The first is a no brainer! Pumpkin Carving and/or Painting

2 - Backyard scavenger hunt! 

3 - Leaf Projects 

4 - Birdseed Cookies and Birdhouses

5 - Haystack Bowling

6 - Potato Sack Race

7 - Beanbag Toss

8 - Leaf Garland 

9 - Pine cone bowling 

10 - Pumpkin ring Toss 

11 - Flashlight Tag & Ghosts In A Graveyard 

12 - Apple Stacking 

13 - Pumpkin (apple, pinecone etc) rolling contest 

14 - Leaf Jumping (jumping in a pile of leaves) 

These are just a few of the fun activities for fall games in the backyard.
