Visit an orchard

Nothing beats the taste of a freshly picked apple. Why not go apple picking with your children this autumn, and for an extra challenge, ask them to balance one on top of their head.

Rake the leaves

Rally the family together to try something old and something new. A favourite activity is to rake the leaves into a big pile and jump into them! You could even make a Leaf Maze in your garden or over the park. Our Chelsea boots for perfect for this type of fun with their flexible soles for day-long durability and comfort.

Hit the trails

Take time to appreciate the changing colours of the leaves that can transform a regular hike into a magical one. Our super tough Charge shoes will see you through this kind of adventure with their 360-degree protection and durable soles.

Pumpkin patch challenge

Get Halloween ready by visiting your nearest pumpkin patch. Encourage the kids to burn some energy and have a run around to find their favourite shaped pumpkin. Challenge them to push, roll or carry their pumpkin away.

Jump in puddles

Most kids will make it their mission to find the largest, muddiest puddle to jump in within five minutes of going outside after it’s rained. Our waterproof Splash boots are perfect for carefree splashing as they help keep little feet dry and warm.

Football for all

If there’s one sport synonymous with autumn, it’s football. Gather the family and go as fans to a local match or play your own game in the garden.

Farm fun

Visit a local farm or festival for some good old fashioned fun. Tractor rides, pony rides and hay bales are all worthy of becoming your new family tradition. Our Whisper boots will make the perfect companion for farm fun with their flexible soles for round the clock comfort on the move.

Just roll with it

Climb to the top of a hill and roll down. This classic outdoor activity is a great way to connect with nature and learn to roll under control.

Go on a colourful walk

Visit your local park or head to the beach to see what you can find. Look out for unusual birds, see what different trees you can find and collect some conkers in the woods to play with once you get home.
