Now that the stress of finding the perfect Halloween costume for your kid is over, you can focus on spending quality time with your kiddos before the business of the Christmas season kicks off. Sometimes, it can be challenging to travel far with kiddos, so here are some fun (and inexpensive) fall activities you and your family can enjoy together!
