This Week: First Day of Fall, Pet an Alpaca, and More!

5 Things To Do Sept. 21-28 With Kids

By Kara Murphy September 20, 2022

Looking for family fun this week? We have ideas for you! Here are five things to do with kids Sept. 21-28:

1. Play a round of putt-putt

Kids love miniature golf, and there's no better day to surprise them with a trip to your favorite local course than Miniature Golf Day! Sept. 21

Wondering where your local events are? 

A Macaroni KID site near you needs a publisher to keep the local events calendar full!
If you're interested in being a publisher for Macaroni KID in your town, visit now and find out if a territory is open near you! Or share with a friend or family member looking for a great at-home job!

2. Celebrate FALL!

Pumpkin patches, apple picking, corn mazes, bonfires, piles of leaves ... there are so many things that make fall special for families. What's on your family fall bucket list? We know fall — just like summer — will pass in a blink of an eye, so we wanted to create a bucket list to hang on the fridge to make sure we don't miss a thing. Get your free fall printable now. Sept. 22

3. Pet an alpaca

Alpaca farms across the United States will open up the last weekend of September for National Alpaca Farm Days! It's a chance for your kids to see alpacas up close, tour a farm, and view live demonstrations. Find a list of participating farms here! Sept. 24 & 25

4. Buy a comic book

Many kids fall in love with reading because of comics or graphic novels. Celebrate National Comic Book Day by taking your kids to the local comic book store to find a new favorite. Sept. 25

5. Hug your daughter

Celebrate everything about your daughter — and tell her why you'll always be her biggest cheerleader — on National Daughters Day. Sept. 25
