Top 5 Fall Activities for the Family

It’s almost Thanksgiving and the highlights of autumn are the festivities that come this time of the year. You can get outdoors for brisk walks against the backdrop of falling leaves of every color, choose pumpkins to carve or even bake away to your heart’s content! We present some exciting endeavors that you can enjoy with your loved ones. 

1. Go on Hayrides to Pumpkin Patches

Children see hayrides as a novelty and tend to get immensely thrilled by them. You can visit a farmhouse with a pumpkin patch and let your tiny tots have the benefit of a hayride to the patch where they can choose the pumpkins they fancy. So take a swift drive to a farm in your neighborhood or even close to the countryside for a day of fun at the farmhouse! Getting your vehicle well organized for the journey is vital. It would be best to have a talented mechanic diagnose any lingering car trouble so that you are all set for the trip to the farm.

2. Visit Fruit Orchards for Apple Picking!

Go apple picking! The best part is that you can make it a family project. Soon after you pick out those crisp, red apples, you can look up some fabulous recipes for baking them into goodies. 

3. Bake Apple Treats for Your Friends

Be it caramel encrusted candied apples for your toddlers to binge on, some cinnamon-laced apple pies for gifting your neighbors or even apple strudels as a fitting dessert after supper — the sky's the limit to what you can bake with this versatile fruit. Bake together to relish every bit of the cooking as much as your loved ones shall enjoy devouring the sweet treats! In fact, you can use the ripe fruits to make a delicious jam that you can store away for later. This also makes a thoughtful present for when you visit relatives or friends for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner.

4. Take a Brisk Stroll on the Beach

With the brisk breeze, fall gives you great weather for a walk on the seashore. Be it a picnic meal you wish to relish with your partner or even building sandcastles in the sand with your toddlers; autumn makes for serene beach weather. So dig out those sandals, beach ball and pack a few sandwiches for it’s time to head to the beach for a leisurely afternoon.

5. Stimulate Your Children’s Brains with a Corn Maze

Not only is this a thrilling activity, but successfully making their way through a corn maze is a great way to empower your little one. It is an activity that stimulates their brains when they must rely on their wits to find their way out of the maze. It is deemed suitable for kids over the ages of seven! 

As parents, all you must do is simply chaperone the visit and make sure your child knows you are waiting to greet them at the end of the maze!
