Fall Party For Kids – Celebrate Autumn

Welcome Autumn with a Fall Party!

My daughters and I have had a fall party for several years on Fall Equinox. But any fall day is perfect for a fall celebration!

Our Fall Party has always included cleaning and decorating the house, making special treats and playing games. It’s usually an all-day celebration at our house!

I’ve got several awesome fall games and activities here for you to choose from.

And simple fall party food ideas that anyone can do.

This party is so easy to plan and host. Make great memories the easy way!

Easy Fall Fun for the Whole Family!

If you invite guests to your party, they may not be as eager to clean your house but I’m sure they would love the other activities!

Good thing is that for this party you can use any fall decorations you already have or intend to get for the autumn:

4. Make Art with Leaves

Collect some leaves, use them to stamp cards. Or press the leaves and laminate them on notebook covers.

5. Have a Pumpkin Race

What you need:

  • Two pumpkins or balls
  • Two sticks

You need two teams or do one-on-one races.

Roll the pumpkin by pushing it with a stick to a marked area (or around a scarecrow) and back.

  • Leaves

Use a straw to blow a leaf across the table.

Or put a pile of leaves on the floor and have kids blow them to their (team’s) side. The one with most leaves wins.

7. Pass the Pumpkin

  • Two pumpkins

Two teams.

Members of a team stand in line. First person passes the pumpkin over his head. Next between his legs. Third over the head and so on. When the last person gets the pumpkin, he runs to the front and passes the pumpkin over his head. Continue until everyone is back in their original positions.

8. Pumpkin Hunt

  • Pumpkins

Hide small pumpkins or paper pumpkins around the house or yard. Whoever finds the most wins.

And Have Quiet(er) Time with Books, Board Games, Puzzles

9. Harvest Time Board Game

This is a cute cooperative game. Everyone has their own garden but all will also help the others to plant and harvest. It is a great game for the little ones. Start planting and harvesting with Harvest Time.
