Muddy Puddles are on a mission to connect growing explorers with nature by making clothes that protects them in all weathers and is kind to our planet. They are built on the proposition that there is no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong kit!
The autumn season is upon us! We love this time of year – everything from conker foraging, pumpkin picking and the feeling of stomping and crunching through the leaves on a brisk family walk. To celebrate this wonderful season, we’ve joined Muddy Puddles and put together a list of activities to do with your children in the great outdoors this autumn.
- Go pumpkin picking
What better fun in preparation for Halloween than walking through rows and rows of pumpkins in all shapes and sizes. Once you’ve picked the perfect one, head home and have a go at carving some fun designs with the kids.
- Fly a kite
Autumn is the perfect season for flying kites – just make sure you pick a nice windy day. We’re sure your children will love learning how to fly them and remember the higher up you go, the better they fly.
- Paint pine cones
Look out for pine cones on your autumn family walks and then you can enjoy painting them at home with different types of paint or even glitter.
- Jump into leaves
The ultimate autumn activity! There is no better feeling than jumping into a freshly raked pile of crisp autumn leaves. It’s a win-win – your children can jump to their heart’s content while helping you in the garden, raking the leaves.
- Make a bird feeder
At this time of year, there is less going around for our lovely bird friends to feed on so why not make a bird feeder? A good feeder will bring lots of different species of birds into your garden so your little birdwatchers can learn all about them.
- Go on a leaf hunt
There are endless shapes, colours and sizes of leaves at this time of year. Why not have a little competition and see how many different colours your children can find.
- Look for conkers
Children love conkers and looking for them. You could always then try your hand at a good old game of conkers and see who the winner is.
