I don’t know about you but I love everything autumn: autumn crafts, autumn activities, autumn recipes and autumn candles. You don’t want to know the amount of money I spend on them each year. It’s just one of my favourite seasons! So what better way to celebrate its start than with a round-up of fantastic autumn posts from my favourite bloggers?
There’s something for everyone from delicious recipes and activity ideas to super cute crafts for little ones. Let’s dive straight in!
I’m a massive fan of a warming soup in the colder months. In fact, I’ve written this post about 25 delicious autumn soups and broths a couple of years ago. Cat from Yellow Days has shared this super yummy roasted butternut squash and sage soup with me though, so I might have to do a top 30 post soon!
Aly from Bug Bird and Bee is known for her pickles and chutneys among British family bloggers and she’s come up trumps once again this autumn. Check out her yellow plum chutney, I bet it’s delicious with some crackers and cheese!
Emma (Bavarian Sojourn), Kirsty (The Mummy Sphere) and Jenny (Mummy Mishaps) are fellow apple lovers with a sweet tooth. I wonder if Emma’s German Apple Cake is as nice as my Nan’s? Another autumn recipe that really reminded me of my childhood was Kirsty’s Easy Baked Apple recipe with cinnamon. We made them in kindergarten or at my Nan’s and to me, they’re just the perfect autumn treat!
Something I’ve never made before is Sticky Toffee Apple Breadsticks. Jenny has a step by step recipe on her blog, so I’ll try and make them for the autumn fete at Amy’s kindergarten.
I’ve got a couple of autumn crafts and activities planned for the coming weeks, but if you want to get started straight away, here are some fantastic ideas for you.
Autumn is not only apple season, it’s also the perfect time to see if foraging is something you’d enjoy as an outdoor activity. Michelle from Mummy From The Heart has written a fantastic guide to foraging for beginners. She doesn’t only tell you about seasonal produce but also gives you an overview of the benefits for children. It’s really a fabulous resource!
We all know that the weather can be a little temperamental in autumn. If you prefer to stay indoors, these ladies have you covered. Otilia from Romanian Mum Blog shows you how to make a handprint tree. Cass from Frugal Family has an entire post on conker crafts and Joy from Pinkoddy made adorable little hedgehogs with cocktail sticks. Definitely, check them out, they’re super cute craft projects for little ones!
Jennifer from Jennifer’s Little World is keeping her name as Hama bead queen alive with these autumn themed holders for battery operated tea lights. They’re rather lovely and make a fantastic centre piece for your autumn table!
