Slow down and enjoy the fun stuff that fall naturally brings. Fall itself is fun. Think of the things you enjoyed when you were little. Many foster children have not experienced these everyday little pleasures while others may not be able to celebrate Halloween due to religious beliefs.
Rake leaves and jump into the piles. My past foster children loved this and had never done it before.
Enjoy walks together as a family and note the changing colors. We try to find the most interesting leaf shape or color. Finish the outing by reading A Simple Brown Leaf, an awesome book that ties this sort of fall fun, all together.
Visit a pumpkin patch and have every family member pick a pumpkin or get a great big one for the entire family to enjoy.
Build a scarecrow together for the front yard. Set up other fall decorations like gourds, pumpkins and bales of hay.
Visit a crop maze. These are fun for all ages. My teen boys had a blast running through one last season.
Plant fall bulbs together. Allow the kids their own section of a garden.
Above all, have fun this fall.
