4 Cool Ideas To Do With Kids This Fall

Whether you're a babysitter or a parent the weather forcing children inside for the fall is a common problem. Personally, I do a lot of babysitting, it helps pay for university and pulls me out of the books for a few hours. But when summer ends the weathers turns ugly I am at a loss at what to do with three kids for four hours. Here are four fall crafts that will get you guys busy and active.

1. Pumpkin Carving
This is great especially for younger ones, you may have to handle the knife and the actual carving bit but they can draw on their designs and dig out the pumpkin guts. Maximum entertainment for the little ones. Just make sure you lay down newspapers and clean up really well.

If you feel like being really creative then after the pumpkins have been gutted you can roast the seeds for a snack for the little kids! Just make sure you handle all the cooking and check for allergies. I usually make them drag over a chair and then they stand and watch. I like this recipe it tastes really good!

2. Photo Shoot
This next idea relies heavily on it not being rainy. Take the kids outside and get them to throw leaves around. Take their picture and you have a little fall photo shoot going on. Try and get them to spin, jump and laugh as those make the best picture. Just make sure that if you are not the parent that you ask them for permission to do so. I usually take picture of all my little babysitting minions and send them as updates to the parents throught the day

3. Scarp book
Grab a cheap photo album and some cool leaves from outside and you will be well on your way to an afternoon of entertainment. If you decide to do the fall photo shoot some of those pictures would look really cool in the album. I usually grab some leaves and write out what the kids are thankful for! It adds a super nice touch.

4. Apple cider
This is really easy if you just want something really simple to do with them! Plus a tasty treat for later. Apple cider makes the whole house smell amazing and gives kids tons to do. Ask them to help you measure out the ingredients and feed them apples while you prepare(get that fruit in) Its tons of fun for all ages. I like this recipe it's super simple !

I am sure there are many things you can do with kids during the fall but these are some easy and cheap ways to keep them occupird. You will be the favourite parent or the best babysitter in the world after these crafts.
