Activities you can do with your host children

Fall has officially started and we have to be ready for the cold weather! Fall is the season that most of the leaves change their colors and then fall, this is the season prior to see the snow! you can make a leaf pile and play with your host children outside. Lets see some activities you can in this incredible season!!!

22054307_1938918769679518_1890160330_n  22053150_1938918766346185_545930724_n

Nature walk

Nature walk can be done at any park with a lot of trees, so you can go with your children and have fun collecting leaves of different colors and sizes, at the same time you can explore new places with them! Its recommended to do it in the middle of fall, either at the end of October or at the beginning of November.That sounds good!

Draw in the side walk chalk

20748096_1920721131499282_6242151799525229348_o.jpg

Since the weather is getting cooler and cooler draw in the sidewalk is a good idea to spend time with your host kids! lets try it, that would be awesome!

Take them to story time to your local library!

There are many libraries that in fall schedule story time for children, so you can go with them and the librarian reads books and they also do some crafts! I am completely sure your kids will be happy attending to the story time with you!

Write letters to their love ones (walk to the post office)

Most of the kids have cousins and they love to write letters, so it is also a great idea to help them write some letters and walk to the post office with them to send the letters!!

As you can see in fall you can do many activities with your host kids!!
