It’s been a hot summer, but it’s almost time for fall. A new season means finding new activities for your family to enjoy. Instead of stressing out while trying to figure out what to do, check out these five fall activities that your whole family is sure to love.

1.      Watch Fall-themed Films

A fall-themed movie night is a fantastic way to kick off the season. Pick some fall classics, such as “Hocus Pocus,” “Back to the Future,” or “The Great Outdoors.” Your family will laugh at the hijinks on the screen and make some memories in the process. Oh, and be sure to bring the popcorn to make your movie night complete.

2.      Enjoy a Picnic

The weather is way too nice to stay inside day after day. Fortunately, you can break free from the indoors by having a picnic.  First, pack a picnic lunch and grab a blanket. Then, you can go to a nearby park or your own backyard for a tasty picnic. Whichever you choose, consider bringing toys along if you have little ones. Then, you can relax and enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells of fall while your kids play.

3.      See the Foliage

You can load up your family and take a ride to see the foliage. If you want to view the changing leaves from the ground, drive over to Robinson Preserve. It has over four miles of hiking trails that provide excellent views of the colors of fall. You’ll be immersed in the season when you visit here.

4.      Bake Seasonal Pies

If your family enjoys cooking, now’s a great time to bake some pies. Your little ones can help you with the baking, or you can set up a pretend cooking area in the kitchen for them. That way, everyone will feel like they had a part in the baking process. You can even pretend to eat the pies that your kiddos “bake.” As a result, everyone will have a fun time in the kitchen.

5.      Have a Pie Tasting Competition

If you have several bakers in your family, you can have a pie tasting this fall. Set up grading cards next to each pie, but don’t put names on them. Then, your family can go from pie to pie, tasting and reviewing each one. After the tasting is over, review the cards to see who won.

Because it’s a competition, you should consider having a prize. It doesn’t have to be anything major. For instance, the winner can pick the film for your fall-themed movie night. That’s a nice prize, and it won’t cost you a thing as long as the movie is available to stream.

Your entire family will have a great time with these activities. With indoor and outdoor options, you can let the weather be your guide when choosing from the list.
