Family Fun – Fall To Do List

I simply love everything about the fall season.  It is my favorite time of the year by far and I really relish all of the fun family activities that we do together during the season.  Each year I put together a list of activities that we plan to do over the fall months together as a way to get excited about all things fall, family, and fun.  It is time for pumpkins, sweaters, hot cider, and bonfires and I couldn’t be more excited!

Well, we managed to check off every single activity on our summer fun list, and it’s time to retire it for this year.  Because fall is my favorite time of the year I enjoy looking forward to all of our family activities through the next couple of months.  I make a list this time of the year, not so much to help us keep busy and find things to do, but to enjoy the thought of all of my favorite fall things.  I recently re-purposed a very cool old door into a chalkboard that fits on the end of our pantry off of the kitchen.  It is the perfect space for our family fun fall list.  I will give share a with you how I transformed the door into a chalkboard soon, but today I want to share all of the fall activities on our list with you.

The things that I included on our list range from simple kids crafts, to family traditions, to general reminders about the season.  Tailor  a list to suit your families interests and activities.  A lot of the activities we would be doing anyway – but it gets the kids really excited about each and every family activity.  This year our list included:

  1. Go apple picking
  2. Do a mummy craft
  3. Take the horses for a trail ride
