Well, guys, Fall is officially here. I have to say that besides Summer, Fall is my second favorite time of year. The leaves change, the weather is crisp, and the crockpot is back in full force with soups and chilies! I really do love this time of year.
Another thing that is super fun about this time of year is all the Halloween and Fall crafts that is totally happening. I have to admit that Halloween is a favorite holiday of mine because I get to see my kids run around in cute costumes and I get to eat their candy 🙂
I don’t eat all of it! Just some. I think of it as a service to them so I can help prevent cavities.
Doing crafts is always a fun fall activity because it’s super fun to do with the kids. It gets their brains working and they get to be active too!
I have put together a round-up list of fall activities for kids that you might like to do for some fun times!
My friend Cathy from Indie Tot created an article for a super fun and easy activity to do with your kids! The supplies can all come from the dollar store so that’s awesome!
Check out all the materials and ingredients you need here! Not only is this fun for a fall activity for kids, but it’s also educational for them. They get to feel like mad scientists while doing this one!
If you’re planning on trying this activity, I would head to the dollar store sooner rather than later so that they will have the supplies you’ll need. I would imagine that they have plenty of the Frankenstein or pumpkin heads right now being the end of September!
Decorating For Fall
I love to put out all my fall decorations in my house! It makes the season feel more real to me when I see pumpkins or anything that is in a shade of orange or red!
My kids love to do this fall activity because they’re able to use their imaginations and contribute to the beauty of our home.
My friend Daylin from, So Live Love Create put together a great article on how to decorate your home for the fall while sticking to a budget!

Why have I never thought of doing this? Seriously, it’s so easy and so pretty! The kids would love to participate in this craft and I’ll be getting these supplies very soon!
These will give the perfect touch of fall to your home and you can do it all on a budget so that’s a win for me!
Spooky Movies Safe For Kids
When I was a little girl, I used to love watching Halloween movies! Growing up being the youngest of all my siblings, you can imagine the Halloween movies they would watch! I would have nightmares for days but I somehow still loved to watch them.
Do you guys remember Freddie Krueger? What about Michael Myers? Those were horrifying!! Don’t allow your kids to watch these!
Side note, why did those women not run for their lives? I would laugh a little because they would run so slow when they thought they were being followed or in harm’s way. Like, run woman!
Now, I wouldn’t ever imagine allowing my kid’s watch the Halloween movies I used to watch as a kid. Watching Halloween movies is another fall activity you can do with your kids!
My friend Lisa from, Food Family and Chaos has a list of the perfect Halloween movies you can all watch as a family that shouldn’t cause any nightmares! If you’re stuck and can’t find any movies, you can find her list right here!
So, there you have a few fun fall activities for kids that are also budget-friendly.!
