The prompts can be:

  • Completed sequentially 
  • Picked randomly out of a jar 
  • Done as a 30-day challenge (sequentially or randomly)

Note: Once a prompt has been selected, take a moment to read the detailed description for the prompt on the pages in this guide. The descriptions will give you confidence in helping your child deepen their learning and connection with nature when you go outside.

What age range are the prompts for?

I have personally done all these prompts with my children when they were younger (4, 6 and 8) and again when they were older (ages 9, 11 and 13) and they enjoyed them both times. That being said if you’re looking for an age range I would say anywhere between ages 4 to early teens. It’s easy to adjust the prompts for any age.

How did Fall Outside start?

Dawn Suzette Smith, co-author of the book Whatever the Weather, was inspired to start Fall Outside in 2015 as a 30-day outdoor challenge for the month of November. November can be a difficult time to get outside in the Northern Hemisphere, and Dawn wanted to inspire families to enjoy time outside together whatever the weather. In 2018 Dawn handed the Fall Outside movement to Josée Bergeron from Backwoods Mama to continue encouraging families to enjoy fall outside.
