  1. Oooooooooh, GORGEOUS prize! I love autumn and it is impossible to pick one activity! Kicking leaves/collecting conkers/making pine cone animals/autumn walk followed by home made soup/breadmaking/pumpkin crafts/stone painting/fairy houses/leaf prints….if I HAVE to name one it would be pumpkin carving at Halloween…or leaf kicking or…see?! 😉

  2. Favourite activity so far has been painting pinecones (post to come soon )

  3. Oooh! I love everything about autumn! From raking leaves and drinking hot apple cider to baking delicious harvest treats to corn mazes and Halloween! I think my very favorite thing, though, is dressing in layers and bundling up around a backyard bonfire, singing songs and letting the fall air lift my spirits. :)

    Puddling jumping with my daughter! (Or carving a pumpkin if indoors)

  5. Fantastic prize!! My favourite Autumn activity has to be good old, simple, conker collecting. Yes there is loads to be done with them afterwards, but you can’t beat the excitement of finding one glistening conker hiding in its spiky green shell! I love it!! :)

  6. Sara says:

    Autumn is my favourite season as all the colours change to the beautiful rich reds, yellow, deep browns. I love the way we get to wrap up in layers and walk the dog and if we happen to run through a pile of leaves well it was purely accidental as we are all too grown up for such things.

  7. Jenny says:

    Lovely book – my favourite Autumn activity has to be throwing fallen autumn leaves in the air! (And I am 32!)

  8. Definitely jumping in puddles! Looking forward to getting crafty now my son is getting bigger too!

  9. I love the look & sound of this book. Up to now we have started conker collecting but can’t wait for pumpkin carving.

  10. My all time favorite Autumn activity is in the US going to the cider mill and drinking the fresh non-alcoholic cider and hot fresh cinnamon donuts yum! Unfortunately there don’t seem to be public orchards and cider mills here in the UK.

    My favorite crafty fall thing is finding pretty leaves and ironing the leaves between two sheets of waxed paper to keep them.

  11. Karen Lloyd says:

    Oh it has to be going for walks in the rain with all those muddy puddles to splash in

  12. Lisa Parker says:

    I love leave printing. The colour’s of Autumn can be spectacular. I get a selection of different types of leaves. Paint and make a tree out of cardboard and odds and edge and hang them on the tree. Great fun with children.

  13. We love to pick apples and go to the pumpkin patch!

  14. So far this autumn my fave thing has been collecting acorns and pine cones with my sons!

  15. Solange says:

    Trampling on fallen leaves

  16. Carrie says:

    Leaf peeping definitely!!

  17. Kelly Koya says:

    Blackberry picking!

  18. Our absolute favourite is kicking through leaves in the woods. Everyone loves it, from the 5 year olds to the 12 year old!

  19. We have just enjoyed hand painting an autumn trees – I’m teaching Emmy about the different colours the leaves turn in autumn.

  20. Rebecca K says:

    Oooh…. pick me, pick me!!! My favorite autumn activity is going to the pumpkin patch, though that’s a touch choice since autumn is my favorite, and i love everything about it!

  21. Kara says:

    THis looks wonderful – I am a new childminder so this book would be the perfect help!

  22. Donna Towner says:

    I love autumn leaves, the colours the fun, jumping in them kicking them etc.. conker hunting and watching the squirrels gather nuts for winter.

  23. se7en says:

  30. Lesley Bain says:

    My favourite Autumn pastime is getting the children and I all bundled up in lots of layers and wellies, and heading into the woods up here in the gorgeous North of Scotland. We kick leaves and shake raindrops off trees, and play hide and seek :)
