Cooler temps mean s’mores, hot cocoa and impromptu star-gazing mini-adventures. Well, at least they should. So bundle your mini-me up, grab a favorite blanket, jump in the car, head to a stargazing spot, and pop these easy-to-listen to kindie songs on the iPod. If your kids are old enough, make a pocket star guide before you go.

Perfect edventure that masquerades as a family date night. Hello, (cool) parenting win.
