Loaded with helpful tips and fun activities for parents and kids.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this autumn section of the larger site will attract parents more than kids. Yet shuffle through the sales pitches (click on an activity link and an ad will pop up first) to choose from many crafts, recipes, word games, and field trip suggestions, and everyone will enjoy creating fall fun together. Parents will also find helpful year-round tips including toy recalls and school issues.

What's it about?

Part of the Family Education Network, FAMILYEDUCATION.COM's AUTUMN ACTIVITIES section features an orchard full of activities, games, recipes, and field trips of fall fun ready to be picked. Registration with an email address is required before downloading free printables and other activities (you can opt in or out of future product info via email while registering).

Is it any good?

The ads on this site (including extensive McDonald's ads that feature links to blogs and ongoing storylines) border on overkill. But, overall, the content is educational fun, and motivated parents who want to enjoy the season with their kids will find lots of ways to do it here.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about how the Internet can be a useful tool for finding things to do and create in real life. What's more fun: Planting a virtual tree online, or collecting crisp, red and yellow autumn leaves from a real tree in your backyard for a Web site-inspired art project? Also, this site has a "go to link" option on some of its pop-up ads. Discuss why you may choose to watch or bypass certain ads.
