Fall Activities – What Can You do to Enjoy Fall?
Now that it is officially Autumn, what is a better way to celebrate than going outside to and enjoy it? If you don’t have any ideas of what to do to enjoy fall, don’t fret! We have you covered. Whether you want to be active, relax, or enjoy time with your family, we have ideas for all of it!
There are so many fun things to do to enjoy and embrace the Fall season. If you are someone who celebrates Halloween, there are even more! Traditionally, people carve pumpkins with faces, characters, and designs to celebrate. However, the fun doesn’t stop there. Lately, families have taken more to painting instead of carving pumpkins! It’s safe as opposed to using a knife, and it’s a great way to add colour to your home. Another idea for a fun pumpkin is to drill holes in it. When you light a candle inside of it, the light shines through and creates a beautiful design!
Try visiting a local farm. Most farms that are open to the public have fall-themed activities such as hay barrels, pumpkin patches, hay/tractor rides, corn mazes, and more! They usually also offer food such as candy apples and apple cider. Make it into a tradition and bring your family and friends. Farms can be a perfect place to spend a Fall day.
Perhaps the best way to celebrate fall with your family is to go apple picking. Apple picking has been a tradition in my family for years. There are numerous apple orchards all over the world so it’s easy to find one near you! Take a trip to your local orchard and have fun picking out the shiniest apples you see. Another idea is to make a treat out of them once you get home – try making apple pie, apple crumble or apple crisp- yummm.
If you are looking for a mellow way to enjoy Autumn, grab a book and a cup of your favourite warm drink and head outside. Find a cozy spot to relax, read, and breathe in the fresh air around you. Try doing this first thing in the morning. It can be a great way to relax and unwind before you begin your day.
Lastly, a definite way to enjoy is to plan a nice hike or picnic with your friends, family, or even by yourself! Find a trail or a path near you, bring some hot chocolate, and surround yourself with the vibrant colours. Bring your favourite snacks, wear a comfy sweater, and have fun.
If none of these ideas interest you, here are a few more: We suggest going for a run outdoors, making your own apple cider, decorating your house with Fall or Halloween decorations, buying a pumpkin-scented candle, making your own hot chocolate or baking your favourite Fall treat. I hope this helps you enjoy your Autumn and gives you fresh ideas of ways to make this Fall memorable and fun.
