It feels like the whole world relaxes and changes as fall sets in. The air is crisper and it’s just so much more peaceful. This is the perfect time to take your kids on a nature walk and do some outdoor fall activities together as a family. Vineyard Vines has such a great selection of fall looks for the entire family. We love how their easy-breezy styles make it so comfortable to be stylish. Here are 7 fun activities to do on a fall walk:
1. Start a nature walk journal
This is one of the most basic nature walk activities. Journal what you see in a nature walk journal. From the trees, to the animals, the weather, and more. See if you can find any patterns during the week.
2. Organize a scavenger hunt
There are so many free printable scavenger hunts available on Pinterest. Pick one that works for your family and head out to see how many items on the list you can find!
3. Make a leaf rubbing
Get a white piece of paper and put it on top of your leaf that you find. Then using the side of a crayon, you can rub it on the paper across the leaf to get a rubbed pattern on your paper.

4. Do some notebooking
Using a free printable or a primary journal where they can write and draw about what they see. This can incorporate art, language arts, creative writing, and more!
5. Practice math by graphing
The great things about fall is all the different colors. Set out to make a graph on how many trees to see with each color leaf or even how many of each color leaves you find in your own yard.
5. Play “I Spy”
With younger kids, sometimes it’s harder for them to notice some of the smaller details because they are more focused on the big picture. Playing a game like “I Spy” helps them spot the smaller things. If they get stuck, don’t just point out the object. Instead, give them hints so they can figure it out and feel the satisfaction of getting to the answer.
6. Engage all 5 of your senses
Turn your walk into a sensory experience. Have your kids stop and close their eyes. Ask them what they can hear, and what they can smell. Bring some fall foods with you to taste. Have your kids touch everything to feel different textures. Lastly, ask them what they can see. When they rely on something other than their vision, they will get much more out of the experience.
Most of all, remember to let your kids be kids and have fun! Let them go explore what catches their interest and they will learn so much.
