What a beautiful time of year to go for a hike and enjoy all the fall leaves! Another way to be outdoors is to have a family bonfire and make s’mores (yum)! Maybe even a family camping trip in your own backyard? Or you could have an outdoor movie night on a big screen and have popcorn and snacks. The possibilities outdoors are endless, just figure out what is the most practical for your family.
Little kids will love to pick the apples…and who doesn’t love homemade apple treats used from your bounty? Maybe it’s time to make a homemade apple pie, or candy apples (yum)…whatever you decide, apple picking is sure to be a fun fall tradition!
After all, October is National Cookie month…sugar cookies with icing to decorate is so much fun for everyone. You can make it a certain theme in the decorations or just use your favorite toppings!
A simple tradition you can create is to have a family game or movie night. It might be too chilly outside, this is a great time to relax inside and have some fun! Having a specific theme such as scary movies, or Disney movie night can also add a personal touch and make it more exciting for the family.
Here are some tips to help you have a successful family game night.
Since all the leaves are falling take this season as a time to enjoy them! Raking them alone can be boring and tiring, so making it a family affair is much more appealing. If you have small kids, get a big pile together and jump in them they will think it is so much fun! Afterwards, you can have some apple cider or hot chocolate with marshmallows and get cozy and relax.
Creating fall family traditions are lifelong memories shared with those you love, and the Fall is a fabulous time to get started! Enjoy!
