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 :-)

Bissell Vac and Steam Machine Review and Giveaway

I have hard floors downstairs which I love.  They are much more practical than carpet with 2 mucky boys and a dog. Over the past 8 years I have tried all sorts of ways to keep them clean and I think I have finally found the product that does that for me. It is the  Bissell Vac and Steam Machine .  This amazing suel action machine vacuums and steam cleans either independently or at the same time.  It means that I have done away with my vacuum and steam cleaner downstairs (which I gave to my brother in law). What I like: You can either vacuum or steam clean or do both It is lightweight and easy to manoeuvre The handle is adjustable great for a home with people of different heights and for getting the kids involved. You need no chemicals The pads are washable and reusable It comes with a two year guarantee It warms up fast (within 30 seconds) so no long wait to start cleaning It costs under £100 It is space saving.  No need for a separate vacuum, steam cleaner or mop. 

Tissue paper poppy badges

Remembrance Sunday will soon be upon us and my boys take part in the annual church service and march as Beavers. This year MadDad will also be marching in his capacity as Manager of the U7's football team.  We are great believers in remembering what people have done for us and the boys have been busy making tissue paper poppies at Beavers.
