You Really Autumn Know: Fall Family Fun Activities

Sweater weather is upon us! Time for the cool air, apple picking, and hayrides. Fall is full of fun activities that all families can enjoy. In fact, here are a few fun activities to try out and cross off your fall bucket list.

fall family activities
  1. Baking: After visiting your local farm to pick apples, blueberries, or pumpkins, you can spend some quality family time baking a pie. Try this recipe out!
  2. Decorate for fall with scarecrows, haystacks, and pumpkins out on the porch because it's the best time of year!
  3. Have a backyard bonfire. Gather with family and roast marshmallows, or you can tell scary stories.
  4. Visit a sunflower field. Many farms have drive and walk throughs for flower picking, so check out a local field here!
  5. Go on a hayride, go through the cornfields, and enjoy some time relaxing with family and friends. For those who are Halloween fans, check out a haunted hayride in October!
