Fall is a great season for cozy (and budget-friendly) fun with the family! No matter how old your kids are, there are fall activities that everyone will enjoy. You won’t even have to worry about falling into consumer debt with these 6 ideas for frugal fall family fun!
Go to a high school football game.
Fall means football season! Attending a high school football game is a great way to spend time with family this fall, especially if your kids are in high school and want to show their school spirit! High school football games have cheap or free admission for families and students, so your Friday night football fun won’t break the bank!
Go apple picking.
Nothing says fall like apple picking! Enjoy a day at the apple orchard while the air is nice and crisp before it gets too cold. When you get home, you can make all your favorite fall recipes, like caramel apples, apple pie, and apple butter!
Make crafts out of fall leaves.
If you have preschool or kindergarten age kids, they might enjoy making pictures out of leaves that they collected outside. All you need is some paper, glue, and plenty of fall leaves!
Have a scary movie night.
For families with older kids, scary movie nights could be a fun way to get ready for Halloween! Rather than spending money to see the latest horror flick in theaters, find a scary movie on Netflix or dust off your old DVD collection.
Do you have a fire pit? Make use of it during the chilly fall nights! Roasting marshmallows is always fun for kids, and it’s a cheap way to entertain them on a weekend night.
