Fall activities

Yesterday we did two fun fall activities. First, we made a fall snack mix. Then we raked and played with leaves.

We made snack mix for Little Guy's teachers at school. I thought it would be a fun treat for them right before Thanksgiving and it was something that Little Guy could easily help with. I got the idea from this website, found on Pinterest.  In our snack mix we included:

  • Corn Chex
  • Cheese crackers
  • Crunch'N'Munch
  • Pretzels
  • Reece's Pieces
  • Candy corn
  • Chocolate chips
I would pour an item into a measuring cup, then Little Guy would dump it into the big bowl. After we added all the ingredients, we mixed it all up with our hands. Little Guy really liked helping to scoop the mix into jars! We made enough mix to even give daddy his own jar!

I love scooping! Franklin the Turtle is helping me!

Don't these jars look pretty!
Later in the afternoon, we went into the front yard.  We only have 2 smallish trees in the yard, but they sure put out a bunch of leaves!  So mommy started to rake, and Little Guy roamed the yard.  He played with his little pumpkin from Halloween for a little while, and even helped mommy with the leaves a few times.  He would get big handfuls and try to put them in the bags.

Here are some leaves, Mommy! Where is the bag?

This is a lot of leaves!

Help me out of the leaves!

It was much harder to rake while keeping a 17 month old entertained!  What fall activities are you up to?
