I spend a lot of time in late November and early December thinking about gifts. Gifts for my kids, my husband, my parents and siblings, my kids’ teachers, babysitters, employees, mailman, etc., etc., etc.!

The heart does seem to swell up this time of year. (My belly does, too! Strange…)
We often think of spring/summer as the seasons to get out and “do stuff.” I like to think that fall also offers so many unique, seasonal opportunities to engage the children in our lives in fun activities and adventures. No matter what climate you live in and what fall looks like where you live, here are a few suggestions to enjoy my favorite season with your little ones!
