FUN Fall Family Ideas


After a busy, enjoyable summer, isn’t it nice to be back in routine with kids back to school, the sun setting earlier (making kids bedtime easier), etc? It sure is. And that doesn’t mean the fun times have to end– no way! Here’s a list of family fun things you can plan this month.

1) Decorate

– Wreath for the front door
– Inside your home for fall
– The porch with pumpkins and other fall decor

2) Bake

– Pumpkin pie
– Pumpkin bread
– Homemade apple cider

3) Enjoy the Outdoors

-Make raking the leaves a family event.
-Go to the local pumpkin patch & hop on a hayride.
-Grab the ingredients for s’mores, then go outside after dinner to roast & enjoy with a cup of hot chocolate.
