Fall Activities for Kids Ages 5+ (plus a new After School link-up!)

Last week so many of you shared great ideas for Fall!  Today I’m rounding up some of those fall activities for kids that work especially well for children ages 5 and older.  Try some of these after school or on the weekend to extend learning your child is doing at school or in your homeschool classroom!

      It’s a good reminder to get off the computer and enjoy this beautiful weather with my kids — (as I sit here replying to comments :). Winter will be here all too soon, at least in the Midwest!
