It has always been a little strange to me that September is referred to as “fall” in the U.S., since technically summer isn’t over until September 22 this year. Plus, temperatures are in the 90s at our house this week, so it definitely still feels like summer! The leaves in our neighborhood haven’t really begun to change colors yet either.
Nonetheless, fall is only a few short weeks away, and I was just in love with all the fall leaf activities that have been shared by other bloggers.
I’ve pinned my favorites to do with my kids, and I’m sharing lots of them here for you to enjoy as well.
Note: For more kid-friendly fall activities including fall printables, see my Fall Activities for Kids page.
