Welcome to another Outdoor Play Party, if you've played outside with kids this week, why not link up below. We love Autumn (Fall) and it's a brilliant time of year to get outside, not too hot, not too cold and loads of natural stuff (leaves, conkers, acorns etc) to play with. So here's a round up of some of our favourite ways to play outside this fall.
Find some leaves, cover them with paper, rub with crayons and voila a beautiful reminder of Autumn. Check out how we made ours here.
2. Conker and spoon races
An Autumn twist on the summer egg and spoon race! We have millions of horse chestnuts (conkers) so this is a great way to use them. This was originally posted with lots more conker ideas.
3. Conker Golf
We used sticks to play 'golf' with and I made a target out of an old box. Super simple, lots of hand eye co-ordination and lots of fun. Even more conker ideas here.
4. Conker Rolling
Not fed up with conkers yet?? Then how about conker rolling, guaranteed to keep little ones occupied for hours!
5. Acorn Treasure Hunt
Fed up with conkers, we painted our acorns with glitter then hid them round the garden for a quick treasure hunt. Lots more acorn ideas here.
6. Pinecone Toss
We've not run out of Autumn goodies yet! Next up the pinecone toss, where you guessed it you toss pinecones into a bucket! Plenty more pinecone ideas here!
7. Pinecone Bird Feeder
A classic kids craft. A pinecone, peanut butter and bird seed. For full instructions check out what we did here
8. Leaf Masks
A fab combination of foraging and art, plus you get a cool mask at the end. A great all age craft, that you can read more about here.
If you haven't had a look at the last Outdoor Play Party then check it out here, there were heaps of play ideas to get you and your kids having fun outside. A favourite of mine was the leaf slide from Happy Hooligans, just because, well who wouldn't want to slide into a giant pile of leaves!!
