Fun Fall Family Activities

Apple Picking – Depending on your locale Apple picking is a very traditional fall family activity. Many orchards will even allow families to spend the day picking up apples directly from their apple-picking farms. Besides spending valuable time together in the fields, you can head home with a truck load of apples and make delectable fall treats like apple pies, apple sauces, caramel apples or apple candies with the fresh fruits that you just picked. It’s also a great way to get kids to munch on the fruit if they are generally not very fond of it.

Fairs – ‘Fairs’ are the essence of fall. Do some research into what is happening in your local community; there might already be a fall fair with carnival rides and games that kids enjoy. Some of these fall fairs also have animals that the kids can interact with which can make for unforgettable childhood memories. The little ones will look forward to fall every year once you take them to one of these festive fairs.

Making Leaf Piles – Finding all fun can be pretty simple and non nonsense. For example you might have the kids rake the leaves in your yard to form large piles. Allow them to jump through these piles and watch their faces glow with excitement as the leaves take flight! A simple tradition like this can make quite the impression on your little ones.

Scarecrows – Come fall, you might encourage your kids to create fun decorative items for your home. Scarecrows provide the perfect means of putting your kids’ old clothes to good use. Simply hang the pieces out or stuff their garments with straw for decorative purposes or to actually help scare crows and other pests away! Kids will ultimately have an entertaining time putting together their best works of art for everybody to see!
