That summer sure did fly by, didn’t it? It seems like only yesterday that we were enjoying hikes through the woods, splashing around in the pool, and trying to cool off with some ice cold lemonade. However, the leaves on the trees are beginning to turn, and soon they’ll be falling off, which can only mean one thing – autumn is here!
I love this time of year. Not only are the kids back in school (hooray!) but it’s such a pretty time of year, as the world around us prepares to go to sleep for the winter. I hope you’re enjoying these early fall days with your kids, and I hope that you’ll remember Hartstrings for everything your kids need to make sure they’re prepared for the cooler days ahead.
Outdoor Play with Your Kids
Just because the weather is getting cooler doesn’t mean you have to keep your kids inside. Kids need to play outside because it boosts their creativity and their imaginations. It also gives them the much-needed exercise they need to be sure they stay healthy and strong. Make sure your kids have the right clothes for outdoor play in the fall. We have a beautiful collection of girls’ sweater dresses that are feminine, but that will also give them the freedom they need to run around the back yard. For your little boys, we have a great selection of polo shirts that come in both long and short sleeves. These types of clothes are versatile and easy to wash, so you can be confident that even if you do catch the kids jumping in a pile of leaves, they’ll wash well and be ready to wear to school.
Indoor Activities with Your Kids
There’s no doubt that while you want to encourage your kids to play outside, the fall is a great time to take part in some indoor activities too. With the holidays quickly approaching, why not tackle some of your holiday baking right now? In our family, baking was always more fun when we did it together, and if you start early enough, it won’t matter that you take your sweet time. Why not bake a few batches of pumpkin cookies for the kids to share with their class at school? Or perhaps you’re more of the crunchy walnut toffee type and you’d rather whip up a batch to share with family and friends. Either way, your kids will love that you included them in baking fun.
At Hartstrings, the love of children is at the heart of all that we do. Fall is a very special time of year, both for kids and for parents. No matter what you do to celebrate, and no matter what fun activities you take part in as a family, make sure your kids have all of the clothes they need. From girls’ sweater dresses to boys’ jackets, we have it all! Visit our online store to see our great selection today!
