It’s Fall Y’all! 5 Simple Fall Family Fun Ideas

Fall is my favorite season of the year for so many reasons. It's a great season for family fun. I love the colored leaves and cooler weather.  There are so many activities you can do. I encourage you to make a Fall bucket list with your family just like you do in the Summer. That way you can be intentional with family time. 

What is a Fall Bucket List? 

A Fall bucket list is a list of experiences you want to do during summer. Making a Fall list is a great way to empower kids to think through what they would enjoy doing. The fall family fun bucket list can include indoor and outdoor experiences. It can also include some outings. Below is a list of 5 simple ideas for you.

1. Go apple picking

Find an apple orchard nearby and go apple picking. It’s a great experience to do as a family and can also be educational. Do you know the correct way to pick an apple? I didn’t until going to an orchard and learning. The variety of apples is also fun. Our family loves Jonathan apples because it’s my husband’s name. 

2. Collect leaves

Look for a place with lots of different trees. It may even be your own backyard. Then, send everyone out to collect leaves. Afterward, take some time to identify the trees the leaves came from. You can also place the leaves between wax paper and iron them flat. I remember doing this as a kid and loved it! Click here for a detailed post about that process.

3. Jump in a pile of leaves

As a family rake leaves into piles. And then jump in! It’s so much fun and freeing! If your yard doesn’t have trees, offer to rake someone else’s yard and use their leaves. Have fun jumping!

4. Go for a drive in the country

Go for a drive as a family in an area with lots of colorful trees. Keep a log of all the colors and trees you see. One of my favorite places to drive is in one of our downtown neighborhoods. The view is absolutely breathtaking with the canopy of trees. 

5. Make an apple pie

My favorite pie growing up was my Mom’s apple pie. Yummy! Apple pies can be part of your fall memories. Use the apples you picked at the orchard (or apples from the store) to bake an apple pie together as a family. It’s a great way to connect and work together. There is also some Math involved so it can be educational too. Click here for an apple pie recipe if you need one. Don’t forget the cool whip or vanilla ice cream to go on top. I can smell the apple pie now!
