Family Fun: It’s Fall Fun for All!
It’s already fall? What? Yes! Summer is a memory and school is back in session. Routines, schedules, and extracurricular activities are in full force … AGAIN. What to do? Have fun! Fall is a great season for fun family activities to break up the daily grind. There are so many possibilities before the winter sets in and a whole new set of fun activities!
Fun Fall Family Activities
- Nature walks
- Nature scavenger hunts
- Hiking or cycling
- Family sports (soccer or football)
Cooking is a great chance to teach your kids a skill and spend quality time together. Open up those cookbooks (or dust them off, in my case).
- Halloween treats
- Thanksgiving recipes
- Homemade applesauce or cider
- Pumpkin or apple pie
Crafts are fun, educational, and there are endless possibilities.
- Apple or Corn Prints
- Pumpkin art
- Table centerpiece (use scavenger hunt items!)
Explore your local area for fun. You never know what you’ve been missing right next door!
- Visit a pumpkin patch
- Pick apples at a local orchard
- Fly kites at a local park
- Camp out in your own backyard (don’t forget the smores!)
Read & Write with your kids for fun!
- Write/draw a list of things for which your family is thankful
- Create “Wish Books” for Christmas
- Visit the library for seasonal books
- Read favorite stories over an outdoor picnic
Hopefully this list has helped you think and imagine of all the possibilities for fun this fall.
