15 things to do outside this Autumn
  • Do a walking trail. There are several permanent family friendly walking trails in Berkshire, click here to find out where they are. (Follow government Covid-19 guidance r.e. exercise and travel.)
  • Go Star Gazing. Wait until its dark at night, go out and look up at the sky. Why not wrap up under a warm blanket and watch the stars. Can you see the space station or spot a shooting star? Why not see if you can identify any constellations in the night sky?
  • Go Geocaching. Geocaching is ‘the world’s largest treasure hunt’ and is a free activity; outdoors, lots of fun and an activity for the whole family.

  • Jump in Muddy Puddles. On a rainy day, go prepared and jump in muddy puddles. Yes, it maybe a bit wet and muddy but the kids will have a plenty of free fun and burn off some energy at the same time.
  • Feeding the ducks as part of a walk is popular especially if you have younger children all year round and it doesn’t just need to be a summer activity. Click here to discover some great places to feed the ducks in Berkshire.
  • Why not sit outside at home and enjoy a hot chocolate and marshmallows in the garden or head out for a walk and treat the family to a hot chocolate during your walk.
  • Watch an autumn sunset.
  • Run through the fallen Autumn leaves.
  • Play in the park. Just because it’s no longer summer doesn’t mean that you can’t take the kids to the park. Just make sure they are wrapped up warm.
