Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. Summer’s seemingly unbearable temps begin to lighten up, and the leaves turn to those beautiful amber and gold hues. Although the weather is exceptional this time of year, so is the list of activities you can do with the whole family. Fall is full of exciting times and great opportunities to take advantage of family togetherness. A few great family fun activities include:
Enjoying a nice nighttime hayride with your family is a fun, yet slightly, spooky way to enjoy each others companies. Ghost, ghouls, and goblins may be running about under the full moon as a tractor pulls you and your family through an open field, or it may be more laid back so that you can simply sip on hot cocoa and relax under a blanket. Usually local hay farmers or orchards will offer these rides for only a couple of bucks.
If you have older kids, consider getting the family together for a visit to the area’s local haunted houses. Together you will laugh, be scared out of your wits, and may even have a chance to get free psychic readings. Either way, your night together will be sure to create lasting memories.
Anymore, great costumes are hard to come by in the store. The selection is usually limited, the costumes are often over priced and they just feel cheap. You usually wind up buying multiple accessories anyway just to complete the costume or make it look more like what your kids want.
Instead of buying costumes this year, consider making them with your kids. Not only will it give you some quality time together, but you will all also get to use your creativity and have fun – not to mention finally have that one of a kind costume.
Fall is full of other great activities you and the family can enjoy outside and for rather cheap prices. In addition to those mentioned above, there are also plenty of corn mazes about during autumn and many local orchards will create enjoyable fare, including apple donuts and cider, that everyone can enjoy. Don’t let the great weather pass you by this season. Get out there and enjoy some cider and a good bon fire. Your family will be sure to enjoy the season right along with you.
