Outdoor Activities for Kids: Ideas

outdoor activities for kidsPumpkin Fun

Nothing says fall quite like pumpkins. Pumpkin carvings and visits to the pumpkin patches are great outdoor activities for kids — and this time of the year, pumpkins are plentiful. A visit to the pumpkin patch is a good activity in and of itself, but the fun does not have to stop here. After you wander through a pumpkin patch for hours and have found yourself some prize-worthy selections, the entertainment can continue at home .

Head outside with your carving gear and get to creating a festive jack-o’-lantern. You can take in the beauty of fall from your front or back porch while carving, which makes for a great family activity.

Corn Maze

There is something magical about a good, old-fashioned corn maze. Of the many fall outdoor activities, corn mazes are amongst the best. Corn mazes can test your navigational skills and get your heart rate going, too. In addition, they double as team-building activities. In need of more family bonding ideas? Rally the troops and head to the corn maze this fall or winter.


If you are in search of more rigorous outdoor activities for kids, hit the trails and get hiking. There is something majestic about the burnt orange, blood red, and electric yellow colors of fall, and there is no better place to enjoy the scenery than from the great outdoors. While the mild weather lasts, head outside and get hiking. And don’t forget to visit Uncle Sam’s, your St. Louis, Missouri, supplier for hiking equipment.

Leaf Exploration

When it comes to fall outdoor activities, there is no reason you shouldn’t get your hands on some of those bright colorful leaves. Instead of just looking at them, start a collection of leaves. And if you want to mix things up, have the kids create a big leaf pile and then jump in it. This simple activity packs a surprising amount of fun. Don’t believe us? Check it out and see for yourself.

  1. Quite right. Nothing says “fall” like pumpkins. I’m a big fan of the corn maze idea too.

  2. As a kid I loved corn mazes! My allergies on the other hand did not. Allergies aside, I remember always having a great time.
