My Daughter’s Top 10 Things To Do This Fall

I’m turning this blog post over to my oldest daughter.  She’s been a guest blogger here a time or two before and asked if she could share some  fun, Fall, family activities.  I figured why not.  She came up with a great list.  I’m glad that she’s taken an interest in my blog.  Plus, it gives me the night off.

Here’s a countdown of my favorite fun things to do with my family during the Fall.

10.  Go to a pumpkin patch and pick out a pumpkin.  Many have lots of fun activities like big bouncy pillows, hayrides, and corn mazes.


9.  Carve Pumpkins. Make fun faces or cool patterns. You could also try painting them.   Don’t forget to save the seeds to roast.

8.   Have a marathon cooking day. What’s more fun than spending all day making making some of your favorite foods? I like to make lasagna, apple crisp, cupcakes, chicken,  mashed potatoes, and breakfast burritos with my Dad.

7.   Take an afternoon off and enjoy a movie at home. Make some popcorn, smoothies, and just relax.

6.  Make shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child.  This is a great organization and it is super fun for all ages.

5.  Make apple cider.  Rent a cider press and spend all day cutting and pressing apples.

4.  Have fun making homemade Halloween costumes.

3.   Try some new foods. I recently figured out that adding kale to a fruit smoothie tastes pretty good and makes it really healthy.

2.   Go somewhere fun, inexpensive, and close to home. A hike at a nearby park is fun and the leaves look cool.

1.  Take a road trip. Our family has gone to Kansas City, Minneapolis, and Omaha before.   Getting away for a day or two is always a good thing.

What’s on your family’s list of things to do this fall?

  1. Wonderful ideas!!! I think I’ll try some. Now I’m thinking about creating a quarterly bucket list with my family. It would be fun way to plan some seasonal activities each year.

    For homeschool, it could be a practical project, not only the planning but also including photos and a write-up about the adventures both large and small.

    Thanks for sharing your ideas.

    1. I love your idea of a quarterly bucket list for your family. Writing things down helps to actually make them happen. At least that’s the way it is for me.
