Fall is without a doubt a great season- the colours are amazing, the weather makes you want to snuggle up with someone dear or read a book, drink some hot tea and of course, bake a pumpkin pie ( or an apple one, still delicious) If you love rain, you get plenty of it in fall, and let’s not forget about Halloween and Thanksgiving! However, if you’re running low on fall activities ideas you might find our list useful- it might get you out of a rut and make you laugh along the way. You’ll also make some great new memories. Here are the 30 fall activities we came up with:
30 Fall Activities To Do Before Snow Falls
#1. Rake a big pile of leaves and jump in it. Your kids will simply love this and you’ll love it too- you will remember that little child still living inside you.
#2. You can use leaves as more than just a pile to jump on. Create art using them and let your imagination run free. Who knows what you’ll create?
#3. Build a bird feeder. This makes for an interesting learning activity that will stimulate the kids and yourself. You could even use pinecones to build it!
#4. Make a scarecrow. It’s a lot of fun to build a scarecrow, especially when you build it with children. It makes for a fun a day and a happy memory.
#5. Visit a pumpkin patch: your family will love the day on the pumpkin patch, as kids will get to choose their pumpkins and you will get a breath of fresh air.
#6. Carve pumpkins. This is perhaps one of the most fun fall activities. Be creative and carve those Jack-o-Lanterns whichever way you like: scary, nice, creepy.
#7. Decorate your house for Halloween. You can easily make most of the decorations yourself- so that makes for a double activity. Be creative to have a spooky house.
#8. Still on the subject of Halloween, you should take your kids Trick or Treating- the costumes, the candy, the quality time- it sums up in a great memory.
#9. Make your own Halloween costumes! Here are some suggestions for easily made DIY costumes.
#10. Visit a Haunted House! A spooky experience that you will cherish forever. Just be careful, you wouldn’t want to get spooked to death!
#11. Create a Scavenger Hunt for your family. Hide clues in your yard and bury a treasure somewhere close to your house. Whoever finds the treasure, gets to keep it. Everyone gets to keep great memories, though.
#12. Go on a Hay Ride. It’s a simple, fun way of spending a Sunday.
#13. Go through a Corn Maze. See how well you can handle mazes and get ready for some fun.
#14. Go in an apple orchard and build apples. Not only will you get to keep the apples you will also spend quality time with your family. As an added bonus, you get to make something delicious with those apples.
#15. Bake an apple pie! The scent of cinnamon, the taste of fresh apples and the homey taste of the pie will make you go for seconds. It’s one of the tastiest fall activities, wouldn’t you say?
#16. Make caramel apples. A tasty treat for your family.
#17. Make S’mores. Fall is the perfect time for this tasty activity. Build a fire, gather your family around it and toast some yummy marshmallows.
#18. Build a bonfire. Who doesn’t love a good bonfire from time to time?
#19. Attend a football match. Perhaps of your favorite team, perhaps of your local team or even high-school one. It doesn’t matter as long as you enjoy it.
#20. Visit the Zoo. Though you can do this any time you like, fall is the perfect season as it is not too hot or too cold.
#21. Roast pumpkin seeds. Remember those pumpkins you carved? Use their seeds to make a healthy snack for your family.
