What to do this Autumn

Colour changing leaves, muddy puddles, toasted marshmallows by the fire – Autumn is one the best seasons!

With so many fun activities, and places to see around the UK this year, your kids will be spoilt for choice when it comes to getting in the festive mood for Christmas!

As a parent, if your looking to give your 3-year-old or 5-year-old a day out that they will never forget, or simply do something that will spark their curiosity – Here is a list of things to do for kids this Autumn season!

Visit a National Trust Park

Of course, no Autumn is complete without a trip to the park!

The UK has hundreds of National Trust places, such as Lyme and Tatton park, where your little ones can play games, jump into a big pile of leaves, collect conkers, go for a woodland walk in their wellies, and maybe even spot a deer or two.

Rainy Day Activities

A little rain shouldn’t stop you from having fun!

Arts and crafts are a great way for kids to be creative whilst also learning to be resourceful. You could make paper flowers, masks, paint pictures, mould clay toys – the possibilities are endless!

Or, get the popcorn ready for a family movie day, and watch their favourite films all snug as a bug on a rug together.

Hot Chocolate and Baking

Cosy up and get warm with a mug of hot chocolate in the cold weather, and if you’re a GBBO fan, get baking with a range of yummy autumnal baking projects for delicious treats!


Autumn is all about festivals, and this season is no different!

Check out the Manchester animation festival this November, celebrating all things cartoony, with workshops and special screenings.

Light up your kids’ faces by going to Longleat’s light festival, and see their amazing lanterns be brought to life as they dance the night away!

Historical sites and Museums

Why not take a journey to the past, or discover the wonders of the world?

Travel back to medieval times and let your children live out their fantasies as a brave knight or princess at Warwick Castle, or visit the Bolton Steam Museum and learn all about the industrial revolution and machines that powered Britain.


Speaking of machines, hop aboard on the East Lancashire Railway to experience the thrill of travelling on a steam train, and admiring the scenic views of the countryside.


If your 3-year old’s birthday is coming up, or you’re looking ahead on what to buy for Christmas, Electric Ride On Cars supply a huge selection of ride on cars, SUVs, 4X4, and Buggies so they get the chance to ride in style!
