I had mentioned in a previous post that I LOVE Fall (you can find said post right here)!! I love everything about it and seeing as it is Friday I thought I would round-up some of my favorite Fall activities, books and recipes to help you jump-start your weekend.

I love these great Leaf Lacing cards from Gift of Curiosity. Lacing cards are so great for developing fine motor skills and with the help of a laminator, hole punch and some yarn they are a super easy activity to put together for the kids.

I am a HUGE fan of pretty much anything 1+1+1=1 puts out! She is amazing! But for Fall I am loving these Fall Leaves and Trees Coloring Printables. Soph is on a major coloring kick right now so to have these for her to color and hang up have been great!

I am so grateful to The Measured Mom for the amazing Emergent Readers that she shares for FREE on her site. They are amazing and I love reading them with the kids. Her newest set is perfect for Fall and I am sure we will be reading these MANY, MANY times!

I loved doing leaf rubbings as a kid. There is just something about that instant picture that you get that I loved. I found a great tutorial over at Edventures with Kids that also has some great book recommendations and examples of using the leaf rubbings as a way to teach your kids about the different parts of a leaf!

Buggy and Buddy has a great Moon Journal printable to help the kiddos chart the many phases of the moon (I can’t help but think that I Took the Moon for a Walk would be a great tie in to this activity). This journal is such a fun way to introduce the kids to phases of the moon.

I also really love the Fall Bucket List of sorts over at Edventures with Kids with 40 great activities to do as a family this Fall! We are planning on checking off as many as we can.

Now let’s talk books, here are a few of my favorite Fall books:

We’re Going on a Leaf Hunt

Leaf Man

Red Leaf, Yellow Leaf

Why Do Leaves Change Color?

Let It Fall

Lastly, let’s talk about my favorite subject: FOOD!! Here are some of my favorite Fall inspired recipes (you will notice quite a few desserts, what can I say I like my dessert!)

I am pretty sure you can’t go wrong with Rice Krispie Treats and these ones from Capturing Joy with Kristen Duke are no exception and perfect for Fall.

The Best Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls from Averie Cooks are truly amazing and pretty easy to make as far as cinnamon rolls go.

This recipe for Apple Cinnamon Pancakes from Six Sisters Stuff are a great way to use up some of the apples you picked up at the apple orchard and makes for a perfect breakfast on a nice, crisp Fall morning.

Pumpkin + Cheesecake + Snickerdoodle! There is nothing wrong with those three words together, as a matter of fact I can’t think of anything better. You have to try these Pumpkin Cheesecake Snickerdoodles from The Recipe Critic they are seriously AMAZING!

I love this recipe for Easy 15-Minute Maple Bars over at Butter with a Slice of Bread. These are so good and a great start to a Fall day!

Last but certainly not least you have to try these Pumpkin Whoopie Pies with Maple Frosting from I Heart Naptime. You want to talk about Fall, I don’t think it gets much more Fall than this!
