Fun for Fall Challenge Day 6: Autumn Family Tree

Posted by   + Show Post

Today's activity will be fun for the entire family and is something you can do year after year to see how much your tree (or the leaves on it) grows!


Materials Needed:
 Paper
 Optional supplies (crayons, paint, markers, glue, etc)


My original plan was to do my family tree with painted hand prints, but with a 1 year old and a 3 year old that wasn't working out for us. So we went to plan B and traced our hands to create autumn leaves. You can try either paint or paper for your tree!



What are some activities you like to do as a family? How often do your kids see their extended family like grandparents, cousins, aunts, and uncles?


If you missed yesterday's activity, you can find it here. If you haven't signed up for the Fun for Fall Challenge yet, you can do so here.

We love going to the park and having a picnic. She sees her extended family about every other week. We try to take her to visit as often as possible.

This is really cute!
My kids see a lot of dh's family; they're a very close knit family so we visit quite a bit. My family, on the other hand, we see a couple times a month.
We enjoy spending time together outside- whether its camping in the summer, going to fairs & carnivals, raking leaves in the fall, sledding in the winter, or planting flowers in the spring; as long as we're outside we're happy!

That is neat. The kids do see some of their family a few times  ayear, not as often as I would like though
