How I wish we also have a fall season in our country when the leaves are golden and the weather is just perfect.
I would love to visit an orchard and pick my own apples. I think that is a fun things to do with your family in autumn. Enjoying the colors of autumn is another relaxing thing to do.
I’m so ready with fall soups and some scones- I love those so much so that will be a must-do. And also, I’m getting inspired to go for glamping and kayaking. Can’t wait!
I absolutely love these ideas! Especially the apple cider “tea” party, and making peanut butter Rice Krispies treats! So yummy!
These are great activities to do this fall. Some are already on my list but i am so adding more right now.
I love this season because we will finally have pumpkins back in supermarkets! And the cooler weather means walks in the parks and pretty soon the farmer’s markets will be open for business.
Lovely fall activities for the whole family. I would love to visit an apple orchard and pick apples. Watching the different leaf colors is also fun to do.

I couldn’t agree with you more. Making soups during the fall are some of my favorite pass times with family.

So many great lists of fall activities and I love it. As a family we mostly have walking, road tripping and cooking different recipes of a delicious soup.
Great ideas for fall. Thanks for documenting- I can’t wait to begin checking off the list.
Those were a great list of fall activities. My kids would be so happy to try all of these.
I plan on going to the apple orchard to pick apples and the pumpkin patch this year. Fall is my favorite season and I am so happy that it is almost here!

Wow. These activities would really bring great family bonding and happy memories. I will keep this list and hopefully we get to do most if not all in your list.

Those are some great suggestions you got there. Can definitely do 3 to 5 of those in one day. Looking forward to the memories I’ll be making with my family this fall.

Amazing ideas! I think it’s really important for families to be creative and to always find ways to be with each other.
Just recently my sisters and I went on a trip to Vietnam. It’s fun. Family first. I believe in that.
I do love summer and I’m usually a little sad to see it go, but there’s so much to love about fall! I love to see the leaves change, wearing more of my scarf collection, apple picking! Pumpkin bread! Thanks for the reminder of all the wonderful things right around the corner!
