I love fall–or, as I like to call it, “No Leg Shavin’ Season”! I love the crisp weather, the festive food, and yes, even the cool crafts and activities to do with my Littles. Though, I won’t lie, sometimes the cooler weather also makes me want to do nothing at all. Which is why I’ve found some great fall activities for the “Perfect Pinterest Mom” and the “Loves to Lounge Mom”.
PPMs are all about cutesy crafts and activities for their brood. Like these:

And now for activities for the LtLM–the momma who just needs a break, even if its just five minutes of peace to go to the bathroom.
For some reason, every time Huff the Tot sees a bird she says, “Shoo! Get away bird! Shoo!” That’s how I came up with this game–all you have to do is send the kids outside to scare the birds! Then, close the door and binge-watch Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.
Lay on couch while kids bring you snacks and beverages. If they aren’t into it, offer stickers for the best “doctor”.
Rake the Leaves
This works especially well for kids who like to dump out their Legos all over the floor and then refuse to clean them up, causing you to step on them (also see: worst pain ever). When the Legos make you want to hide wine in your coffee mug and retreat to the bathroom, tell the kids to grab a broom, shovel, whatever–and “rake the leaves”. Bonus points if you can get them to rake the actual leaves!
