10 Free things to do in Autumn or Fall with your children

I adore Autumn.  The changing colours, the  crisp weather and the golden sunlight.   Something about this time of year makes me want to get out with my children and make the most before the weather changes to our dire UK winters.

So I am sharing with you my favorite free things to do with kids this Autumn.

  1. Go jumping in piles of leaves.  Crisp dry leaves are best. Whilst you are there why not collect some of the different coloured leaves that you can see to preserve at home.
  2. Go on a woodland walk and treasure hunt 
  3. Go on a bike or scooter ride.  
  4. Go to the park after school.  Take a small flask of hot chocolate so that you can all warm up.
  5. Go collecting conkers and then learn how to play conkers.  You can even create your own trophy.
  6. Make a nature display with treasure collected on your walks
  7. Fly a kite
  8. Make leaf and bark rubbings or print with leaves you have collected
  9. Make apple prints
  10. Go on a leaf hunt.
What are your favorite free activities for this season?


  1. Lovely! We like to make huge piles of leaves then jump in them.

  2. Great list there. We are always on the hunt for new, free, ideas of things to do :-)

Dumping the tumble dryer and Ecoforce giveaway

We have a tumble dryer, but it broke before christmas and we  couldn't afford to get it repaired, so I have been managing with an old fashioned wooden clothes rail and hanging bedding over the doors to dry, This last would of weeks however, I have been hanging the washing outside and it has been drying much quicker and with less creases, so I am going to take the plunge and instead of getting the dryer replaced I am going to give it away. Ecoforce heard me on twitter bemoaning the fact that I was chasing laundry round the garden as my pegs were not working and very kindly sent me some of their Ecoforce pegs to try and they have been fab. So in conjunction with Ecoforce I have a year's supply of green cleaning and washing up wonder products worth £50 comprising the following: EcoForce Peg Basket x 1 EcoForce Clothes Line x1 EcoForce Pegs x 2 packs Several of each of: EcoForce sponges, scourers, cloths, duster and bag grips Dishmatic Dishmatic Refills x
