- Pumpkin Patch – Visit a local pumpkin patch, take the kids, make a day out of it. Enjoy the leaves changing, the road trip, and buy one or two extra pumpkins to use as a display or give as a gift.
- Corn Maze – These are fun to go to at night for a more spooky good time if your kids are older.
- Make a Pie – You could go apple picking and then make your own delicious pie. Enjoy a big slice of a Best Ever Apple Pie, or if you want something very easy, try the Super Easy Pumpkin Pie.
- Apple Picking – Take a drive on a crisp fall day to enjoy picking apples with the family. You may be surprised to find an apple orchard close by.
- Stargazing – Now that the days are getting shorter you can get outside and gaze at the stars. Buy the kids an inexpensive telescope like a My Discovery Telescope to gaze up at the night time constellations.
- Hayride – Find a local hayride to go. The kids will love it and you will all get some fresh air. Maybe you could grab some hay to take home for your own decorating ideas.
- Family Movie – Make a family movie night with a great fall-themed movie like Halloweentown, Hocus Pocus, Goosebumps, October Sky, Fantastic Mr. Fox, just to name a few. They don’t have to be scary movies if that is not what your family wants.
- Fall Candles – To get you in the mood for fall, make your home smell like fall with whatever fall scents you enjoy.
- Camping – Go on that last camping trip before the snow flies. Try this amazing recipe for Little Potatoes Campfire Homefries.
- Jump in the Leaves – Have everyone head outside and rake up a pile of leaves and then enjoy an old fashioned leap into leaf piles. I loved doing this as a kid.
The List Goes ON!
11. Football Game – Although you may not be able to go to one, round up your family and get outside to play a little touch football.
