Fall Season Fun Fall Activities

Make use of the great outdoors. Use the comfortable weather & nature’s beautiful backdrop as motivation for an outdoor adventure with your family. Plan simple things that are both engaging, fun and inexpensive. This will help you stay on budget. Here are some ideas that you can try this season.

  • Plan a treasure hunt in the local park – Print out a map of the park on ivory paper and put a treasure map on it! It’s guaranteed to be a lot of fun for parents planning it and for the kids on hunting for the treasure.
  • Enjoy the outdoors – Take a hike or explore local creeks. The surrounding is prettier in the fall season and the weather is comfortable. Bring home a collectible such as a rock or a pine cone and paint it as a keepsake to remind you of a beautiful fall day you spent with the family.
  • Get a head start on your spring garden – Get the kids involved and get your hands dirty. Plant the pretty shades of tulips and the yellow daffodils – how colorful!
  • Sneak in a camping trip while the nice weather lasts – This is one activity that is most enjoyable for your family and is rather inexpensive. Get that s’mores going over the campfire & enjoy nature.
  • Pick your own fruits – As the apple orchards & the berry trees are starting to bear fruit, it gives you and your family an inexpensive way to enjoy the cooler fall days. Want to bring the fun home? Bake an apple pie!
  • Leaves, leaves & more leaves – Gather your kids to a productive outdoor fun session. Rake the leaves in your backyard, make a massive pile and just jump on it! It may seem simple. But trust me it’s a load of fun! It’s also productive, as you can bag up the leaves for disposal afterwards.
  • Visit a pumpkin patch – Visit a local pumpkin patch and pick your own for this season carving! While you are there you may be able to visit a petting zoo or even a corn maze, depending on the farm.
  • Start on a DIY project to make this year’s Halloween Costumes – This may be a good time for you to ask your kids what they want to be this Halloween. May be you can make it a fun project with them to make their own costumes. This will be an inexpensive way to celebrate the upcoming holidays and enjoy a fun activity with your kids!
