Top 10 Family Fall Activities

Top 10 Family Fall Activities

Ahhh fall…my favorite time of the year! This is especially true now that we live in the north again. I actually see leaves changing color already and it’s marvelous! Although it is still quite hot during the day, I feel the nip in the air at night. Since fall is my favorite time of year, I want to share our top 10 family fall activities!

 

10. Family Photos

My family is starting this tradition this year. For a long time, I’ve wanted to get beautiful family photos with bright orange, yellow, and red foliage in the background. I can’t wait!!

 

9. Apple picking

Apple pie, apple cider, caramel-covered apples…I love it all!

 

8. Pumpkin carving

 

I always forget what a complete mess this makes! LOL But, with a little preparation and helicopter-parent carving, it doesn’t have to be a disaster! Carve one large family jack-o-lantern instead of individual ones to cut down on the mess.

 

7. Halloween Party

I love hosting a Halloween party for kids, taking them trick-or-treating, and then having a more adult Halloween party late into the night. It’s the best of both worlds!

I love everything about fall festivals. The food is delicious, the weather is usually cool enough to enjoy being outside, and fall decorations are everywhere!

 

3. Visit the Halloween Store

My kids love going to the Halloween store! It’s fun to see all the costumes and decorations. They even like the little scares they get out of the more realistic decor items. LOL

 

2. Fall Decorating

In September, I pull out the fall-colored decor items. In October, I add Halloween to the mix. Then, in November, of course, I replace Halloween with Thanksgiving items!

 

1. Thankful Tree

I absolutely love this idea that I got years ago from Dora the Explorer! LOL Cut out a big tree trunk from construction paper. Also cut several leaf shapes in various fall colors. Every day of November, everyone in your family writes down something they are thankful for on a leaf and adds the leaf to the tree.  At the end of the month, you will have a huge, beautiful tree full of all your family’s blessings!

I would love if you’d comment below with your favorite family fall activity! You can also join my Facebook Group to find more ideas and share your own!

  1. I always pushed back when my mom took me apple picking and dragged me along to other fall activities. I regret fighting the fun, because I’d love to do a lot of this where I’m living now! It’s not as much fun without family and close friends.

      My husband reminded me that I used to make him do fall activities with me even before we had kids! LOL I guess I’ve always loved it!!
