According to the astronomical seasons, September 23rd marks the official end of summer 2019. We can already see the leaves starting to turn red and brown, there’s condensation on the car windows in the mornings and of course the children are already back at school.
These obvious signs from nature remind us that summer definitely left us and autumn is here.
By now your family has probably started to settle back into the familiarly of the school routine; for your little ones, the novelty of their shiny new cat stationary might be starting to wear off and they’ve probably exhausted their amazing summer holiday stories.
But what about you as parents? After weeks of outdoor activities, playtime and maybe even the odd late night and lazy morning together, we know it can be difficult to find ways for you and your children to continue spending quality time together now that you’re limited to after school evenings and weekends. Plus it’s colder, the days are shorter and there’s seemingly less to do.
But what we want you to know is that you don’t need to worry about that at all! Just because the sun won’t be shining as much (although let’s be honest, how much sun do we get during a British summer anyway?!) doesn’t mean you can’t do fun things together and continue to make real family moments.
Whether it’s exploring the beautiful changes of nature or relaxing in the comfort of the indoors, you can enjoy the autumnal months with our 5 easy-peasy things to do as a family to beat those post-summer, back-to-school blues.
