First edition: here’s our Autumn Play Planner

autumn theme ideas

Welcome to the Autumn Play Planner: fun play every day 

Thank you for all the lovely feedback from our weekly Summer Play Planners. I’m so happy you enjoyed the ideas we shared – and it’s just lovely to hear how you’ve used the ideas with your children.

But now summer’s over, the kids are heading back to school – but we’re not going to stop the playing, are we? Here’s the first edition of an Autumn Play Planner. I’ll be sharing seasonal ideas, with lots of nature projects and ideas for more indoor play. I’m also going to be including some inspiring ideas from around the web, especially some of the ideas that are shared each week in our Play Academy idea swap. So, I’m hoping you’ll find these planners helpful as the weeks roll.
