Children’s Clothing from Hartstrings and All Things Autumn

For every season there are new ways to have fun with your children, new activities and events to match the time of year.  Dressed in cardigan sweaters and corduroy jumpers, your baby boys and girls can be ready for all the best things that come with the autumn season.

After School in Fall

As the kids return to the classroom each day, after school fun becomes all the more precious.

  • Collect colorful leaves.  Explore the shades of fall as the trees shed their leaves.  Have contests for the widest range of oranges, reds and yellows.  Then make crafts of these seasonal treasures to display the colors of fall in a golden rainbow.
  • Homework field trips.  Homework may be a necessity, but who says it has to be done in the confines of the kitchen?  Afternoon trips to the park can be a great way to play and celebrate the end of the school day.  Then, refreshed, you and your little scholars can set up homework at a picnic table and enjoy the cool autumn days before heading home to dinner.
  • Wreath making.  Fall can be quite a festive time of year.  Craft creative decorations to celebrate Halloween, Thanksgiving or just to celebrate the return of the chilly weather!  Add some educational fun by making wreaths that reflect the history lesson or science project studied that week.

What are some of your favorite after school activities?

Autumn Weekends

Your family treasures weekends as they are meant to be spent together having family fun.

  • Watch football games.  Appearing with the cooler days, football games are a fun family activity.  Halftime is a great opportunity to get outside and throw a few passes of your own.
  • Bake cookies.  Baking is better than ever in the crisp autumn, as time around the warmth of the oven presents a great chance to bond.  And now is the time to welcome all things pumpkin!
  • Shopping trips.  Finding school supplies is an important event that attends each fall.  Spend weekend days finding the very best to send your little ones off with, while also enjoying some quality time.

Every family has its own traditions that signal the true reappearance of fall.  What says “autumn’s here!” to you and yours?

Hartstrings proudly features quality apparel for children of all ages just in time for the autumn season.  The return of fall means finding a collection of cozy outfits to keep your child snug and stylish, like a baby boy cardigan sweater with a pair of trousers to match.  Assembling layers ensures a variety of outfits and guaranteed comfort.  Vests, hats, jackets, boots and leggings create ensembles that are nearly as adorable as they are.

Weekends or weekdays, this fall is the perfect time to find the very best clothes from Hartstrings for your little ones to wear for all the fun.

Fall Means Football, Family and Fun!

Fall Means Football, Family and Fun!

Fall is here! If your family is anything like mine, you know that means you’re in for a few months of football, family and lots of fun!

Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. Even though it means adjusting to a new routine now that the kids are back in school, it’s also a time to enjoy some great new fall activities. Perhaps you have a child who is still young and doesn’t remember when you made apple cider together in years past. Or maybe your oldest is preparing to go on her first solo hayride without her parents tagging along! No matter what special occasions your family is planning on celebrating this fall, make sure your kids are dressed for the weather and for every occasion. Hartstrings has everything your kids need.

Sunday Football Games

If your boys are into football (like all of the boys in my house!), you know that once football season hits, you’re in for Sundays spent on the couch, eating chicken wings, ordering pizza, and cheering on your favorite teams. If your boys plan on venturing out to a game this year, make sure they’re prepared for the cooler weather. Our kids’ long sleeve polo shirts are exactly what they need to stay nice and warm while they enjoy the action on the field. Or maybe your family is like mine, and you have a little one who is joining a local football team. Our kids’ long sleeve polo shirts are great for everyone in the family, participant or observer, and of course, you’ll want to make sure they all have warm jackets for when the temperatures really dip down, later on in the season.

Fun with Fall Holidays

I’m sure your kids love Halloween just as much as mine. Halloween is such a fun time of year. If you have a baby at home, you’ll want to invest in some Halloween gear that’s priced right and that will help him or her feel included in all of those pictures you’ll be taking of your kids in their costumes. Our infant Halloween Funny Skeleton long sleeve shirt, or our infant Halloween Jack-O-Lantern T-shirt are just what you need. There’s no reason to let your baby’s big brothers and sisters have all the fun, right?

As you get ready for Halloween, don’t forget to create some delicious treats at home for your family to share. You might also want to make extra for your kids to take to school. Rice Krispies treats or candy apples are big hits this time of year, and they’re easy to make, together with your family.

This is such an exciting time of year for your kids, and we want to help your family enjoy it as much as we can. Whether your kids need long sleeve polo shirts, shoes or accessories, we’ll make sure they’re dressed in their best for every occasion this fall.

Are Your Kids Ready For The Autumn Season?

|

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!
