Cooler weather, warm sweaters, fall often provides a prefect landscape for your child’s adventures in the great outdoors. Celebrate the autumnal season by providing your little one with unique ways to play amongst the fallen leaves. Consider these ideas for fun, outdoor recreation and help combat the impending cabin fever of the winter months.

Dynamic Play

With plenty of apple pie and pumpkin treats to be consumed and state fairs to attend, daily active play is certainly needed! Autumn is a time booming with sporting events. Encourage your child to join in on the spirit by playing a game of catch or a pick up match with neighbors and friends. Whether their game of choice is football, soccer, or basketball, the NightZone™ Sports Pack is great for light-up game play with no worries of earlier sunsets. Consider making active play a family affair by playing games like Djubi® , which is a twist on the simple game of catch but with slingshots. Needless to say that winter often hinders children’s outdoor activity so be sure to take full advantage of autumn’s possibilities.

Cozy Atmosphere

There is just something about fall’s presence that can give you “warm and fuzzy” feelings. With plenty of seasonal books to read like Leaf Man, Pumpkin Pumpkin, and Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf (just to name a few), it’s a great time to provide your child with a cozy and inviting reading space. Consider making that cozy space outside. Keep the wonderment of summer alive with the Glow N’ The Dark Firefly House Tent. The soft glow of the moon and jars of fireflies will provide your child a wonderful reading companion. You can also easily encourage their literary exploration with the Sky Chair. With a variety of colors, patterns, and even LEDS, the Sky Chair creates a comfortable, swinging nook that can be used both inside and outside. With providing cozy outdoor spaces, their reading and day dreaming is sure to provide them with sensory delight!

Whether your child is tuck away in their new hideaway or dashing across the backyard, be sure to help them soak up every moment of the autumnal fun.
