Are you looking for some fun ways to keep your little ones entertained this fall? Fall is such a magical time of year and the perfect time to create memories and traditions you can return to year after year.
Go Apple Picking
Go to an apple picking orchard this fall season. It’s a great way to get out in the fresh air while doing something active altogether. Pick apples, then head home to warm up. You can make a delicious apple pie to enjoy together.
Decorate a Pumpkin
Decorating a pumpkin is great fun for all the family. Before you start carving, you can spend some time sketching your ideas out on paper before starting. Enjoy getting messy scooping out the insides before you create your frightful pumpkin. Make sure not to let anything go to waste, and cook up a delicious pumpkin pie. Perfect for cool evenings. If you want to avoid carving with younger kids, simply swap the knife for some glue and get creative!
Make Hot Chocolate
Is there anything better than cozying up with hot chocolate? Set up your hot chocolate-making station with marshmallows, whipped cream, and sprinkles galore. The kids are sure to have fun making their sickly sweet creations.
Have a Halloween Movie Marathon
Get your popcorn ready! There are plenty of family-friendly Halloween movies to watch on various streaming platforms. You could even write the names of appropriate movies down and put them in a hat. Let each family member pick one out and random, then snuggle up for a movie marathon.
Have a Picnic
The air might be crisp, but it’s still the perfect time to wrap up warm and enjoy the great outdoors.
Go on a Fall Scavenger Hunt
Fall is a great time to go on a scavenger hunt. Enjoy crunching in the leaves and see what treasures you can find. From lovely leaves to acorns and conkers, you are sure to be able to collect some real treasures.
Have a Pumpkin Patch Photo Shoot
Matching fall outfits, anyone? A pumpkin patch photo shoot creates the perfect family keepsake. You’ll love looking back at the photos for years to come. Opt for little girls clothes with plenty of layers, ruffles, and fall colors like burgundy, burn orange and warm yellows. Lots of pumpkin patches even offer hay rides, corn mazes, farmer’s markets, and petting zoos.
Have a Campfire
You don’t have to go far to make fall memories. You can simply head into your back garden and have a campfire. Make some warming snacks like chili and soup before roasting marshmallows and making s’mores. Everyone can huddle together and look up at the stars.
Decorate your house!
Decorating your house can be fun for all the family. Don’t take it too seriously, and let your kids enjoy free reign. You can choose to go in a Halloween direction and turn your home into a haunted house, or opt for a fall theme and even make a scarecrow for your yard!
