7 Fall Activities for the Whole Family

The leaves have started to change color, jack-o-lanterns have taken over all the neighbor’s patios, and pumpkin spice lattes are back on the Starbucks menu.

Yes, the fall season is in full swing, so it’s time to bust out the sweaters and enjoy some fall fun.

Speaking of fall fun, this is the ideal season to spend time with the little ones and bring the family together.

Fall Activities for the Family

1. Play in the Leaves

You know it’s fall when you find leaves scattered around your backyard. While most of us don’t exactly get excited about picking them up and raking the lawn, it’s a fun task to do with your kids!

Grab a rake or two, and show your child how leaf-gathering happens. Admire the beauty of the different leaf shapes and explain to them how and why the leaves change colors.

2. Go Apple Picking

Fall is apple season, which means that this is when these fresh fruits are ripe and ready to eat!

One great way to take advantage of this is to gather the family and head to an apple orchard for outdoor fun.

3. Visit a Pumpkin Patch

Another fun fall activity is heading to one of the many pumpkin patches that crop up around town during autumn.
