Fall Activities for Families with Young Children

Fall Activities for Families with Young Children


Since sharing Sophia's capsule wardrobe last week for the fall, it gave me time to think about all the fall things I would love to do with her this year. Some of these we did last year and we want to keep doing them each year as a family tradition and other's we want to try to see how she will enjoy them and possibly adding those as a tradition as well.

Visit a pumpkin patch

I took Sophia to a few pumpkins patches last year around here at local churches but we also took her to a local farm that had a legit pumpkin patch and you get to choose your pumpkin from the field. It was the perfect opportunity to do a mini fall photo shoot with the hay and tractor and pumpkins but also this particular farm had a corn maze, petting zoo and a ton of games, slides and activities for kids to enjoy. This is definitely one that will be on our fall bucket list every year.



Take family photos

We decided to take our first family photos when Sophia was old enough to allow her personality to shine through on the camera which just happened to be in the fall last year but it worked out perfectly as we were able to use those photos for our Christmas cards. I loved how they came out and since baby boy will be arriving sometime in October, it'll be the perfect time for us to do an updated family photo and to use for Christmas cards again.


Carve/decorate pumpkins

We have done this in previous years with our nephews but Sophia was too young last year to carve or decorate pumpkins. Lately she has been loving stickers so our plan for this year is to get her a mini pumpkin and allow her to decorate it with stickers and maybe markers.


Go to a county or state fair

Anthony and I both grew up going to our county fair from our hometown and it is small enough to where it isn't overwhelming for a toddler although the county we live in now still has a pretty amazing county fair as well but for sentimental reasons we will probably only be taking our kids to our hometown county fair that way they can also enjoy it with their grandparents.


Read books about fall

I love books and I love that Sophia shows such a great interest in books therefore I always try to get her a book or two about the current season or any upcoming holidays or even as souvenirs from places we visit. This fall, I plan to read her Thank You, Dear God which is the perfect board book for infants to 4 year olds on teaching them how to be thankful. Another good book I debated on was One Little, Two Little, Three Little Pilgrims as this book is helpful in teaching counting and giving a little history lesson of Thanksgiving in a fun way but it is aimed more towards 3-8 year olds so this book will be on our list for next fall.



What are some of your family fall traditions?

Fall Capsule Wardrobe 2017 | Toddler Edition

Fall Capsule Wardrobe 2017 | Toddler Edition


We have gotten some nice fall like weather here in Houston lately which has inspired me to get Sophia's fall wardrobe ready. If you remember from last year, I put together a mini fall capsule wardrobe for her as a baby girl and you may notice a few of those pieces will reappear here in her toddler fall capsule wardrobe. Again, most of the pieces were found at second hand stores with an exception of a few that were given as gifts at her birthday (I made sure to request the next size up from our guests). I did try to find as many exact or similar options for you all in case you want to create a similar look for your toddler girl.

If you are wanting to hear more about how I thrift shop for baby and toddler clothing, let me know and I can prepare a tips and tricks posts later on (UPDATE: see Tips for Thrifting Children's Clothes here). I am also in the works of creating a new baby capsule wardrobe (UPDATE: see Infant Wardrobe here) so be sure to stay tuned for that!

Fall Wardrobe 2016 | Little Love

Fall Wardrobe 2016 | Little Love


When I was planning our trip to New York (UPDATE: Trip Recap here), I had so much fun picking out all of our outfits (to be honest, I started on my outfits months ago haha) but I never realized how much fun it was to play in Sophia's closet as well. When selecting her outfits for our trip, I wanted to make sure she was warm enough as Northerners have real fall compared to us Houstonians. Like it barely turned fall now, like two days ago. 

Anyways, once we returned home I was so excited for Sophia to wear the same outfits that she wore in New York down here in the South and I even created more fall looks. The problem is, it has been too hot until now which is why I am barely sharing Fall Outfits towards the end of Fall because Houston doesn't know what seasons are.


A lot of her clothes are great finds from resell shops, Instashops including my own. If I can't find the exact items, I will link similar items for each piece of clothing.

DIY Fall Wreath

DIY Fall Wreath



Last Spring, I created my own Spring wreath for half the price of others listed. I knew I had to create a Fall wreath on my own as well. I was in love with quite a few wreath inspirations that cost $45+ and was determined to cut that price in half for my DIY version.

I gathered my supplies from Garden Ridge which is now known as at home.


I already had the sunflowers and glue gun. I purchased the wreath, harvest bunch and burlap ribbon for about $15. #winning

I glued the flowers and ribbon on the exact same way I did for the DIY Spring Wreath. I also followed this tutorial to create the bow. It was super easy to follow and took less than 10 minutes.


In total, I completed this project in less than an hour. I may add a little something more down the road but as of now it couldn't be anymore perfect.
