When autumn arrives so does the falling of leaves. The trees all around us will be changing colours and slowly fading away to fall to the ground. While some homeowners dislike those fallen leaves all over their property, some families love when this time of year comes. Fallen leaves let you enjoy a fun activity with your kids, jumping in leaves. Rake up the leaves, remove those pesky sticks and enjoy this fun autumn activity with your family today.
Why you should be jumping in leaves with the children
This generation of kids are indeed being raised in an electronic world. Even though your kids may prefer their electronic devices over outdoor time, it’s still beneficial to play outdoors. The fresh air and physical activity from jumping in leaves with kids is the perfect outdoor activity for families.
Uses Gross Motor Skills
Kids and adults can benefit from using their gross motor skills regularly. Being able to go outside to jump in leaves with kids helps use your gross motor skills. This enhances your ability to have good movement in your arms and legs, all the while having a blast.
Good For the Soul
Not only is the outdoor time good for you as a physical activity but jumping in leaves with kids is good for your soul. The fresh air, laughter, and silliness that occurs when you start raking up those leaves and run to jump in them can create plenty of laughter for the whole family.
Cleans the Yard
Raking up the leaves to put them in a pile for jumping fun is a great way to clean the yard while having fun. Let’s face it, many of you want to get those fallen leaves up and off your yard, so why not rake them up into piles for leaving jumping fun before you haul them off to be taken care of?!
Taking the time to jump in the leaves with kids helps build longlasting memories. Being able to get down to your kids’ level and be a child again helps them see another side of you. This enhances your parent-child bond and provides memories that will last a lifetime.
Being able to get outdoors and go jumping in leaves with kids is truly a fabulous way to enjoy the autumn season together. With the cooler weather and warm sunshine, you’ll find that this is not only a fun activity to do but it’s also pretty rejuvenating.
