Autumn is upon us, and that means it’s time to start enjoying fall activities with the kids. Summer is great, but there is something about cozy sweaters, apple cider, and a crackling fire that will just warm your heart. That is why we decided to put together the ultimate family guide for the best fall ever. You can hang it on your refrigerator. Or you can keep it in your planner making it easy to mark off fun fall things that you do. You will have an amazing fall season with all of these fun fall bucket list ideas.
Visit an apple orchard- Make sure you pick enough apples for all of the delicious apple items you plan to create when you get home. Display a random act of kindness for your kids by delivering some to your neighbors or a shelter.
Make Apple Cider
Create this fall favorite by placing some of those delicious apples in a large stockpot with some sugar, cinnamon and allspice. Boil them for an hour, strain through cheesecloth, and refrigerate until cold.
Make Candy and Caramel Apples
Nothing screams fall like caramel and candy apples. Use some of your apples for dipping into your 3 qt. saucepan of gooey goodness.
Roasting marshmallows is an activity you’ll never be too old to enjoy. Now you can experience it in your own backyard over a Sun Joe Fire Joe 35” Cast Stone Fire Pit from Buydig.com.
One of the most beautiful hiking seasons is upon us. Make sure you wear your Garmin Vivoactive GPS-Enabled Fitness Smartwatch so you don’t lose track of where you are among the fall foliage.
Visit a Pumpkin Patch
Skip the grocery store this year and visit a real pumpkin patch to choose the perfect pumpkin instead.
Paint or Carve Pumpkins
Make creating your Halloween jack-o-lantern a family affair. Let the little ones paint some of the pumpkins you chose while you use a carving knife to cut out scary faces on a few.
Roast Pumpkin Seeds
Don’t throw out those seeds from your carved pumpkins. Instead, roast them in the West Bend Electric Extra-Deep Square 12-Inch Nonstick Skillet from Buydig.com.
Have Family Game Night
Game night can be one of the best ways to bring families together on a cool fall evening. You will be making wonderful family memories playing great games like Jenga and Guesstures.
Jump in Leaf Piles
We can’t think of a better way to celebrate after an afternoon of the family working together raking and blowing the leaves than to have everyone jump right in the middle of the pile!
While it’s sad to see summer go, there’s something magical about fall that makes us want to get the most out of this season. Don’t miss out on this beautiful but short season and try some, or all, of these activities on our list. You may even still find some time to throw in some extras like visiting a corn maze, tailgating at a football game, geocaching, or staying in and making popcorn balls after enjoying your favorite soup or chili on Soup Sundays.
