Just because the summer is over and school is in session doesn’t mean that the family fun has to stop. Everyone is probably a little more busy now that Fall has arrived, but that is all the more reason to set aside a little bit of time for some family fun with a Fall activity.

While you can always make memories and have a good time with activities like a family game night or trip to the movie theater, Fall activities are only able to be enjoyed for a few short months each year. This means that you need to take advantage of the crisp air and the changing leaves now – before we are transported into a winter wonderland.
In celebration of the upcoming Fall season, we have compiled a list of several fun activities for families, in hopes that a few of them will pique your interest:

  • Visit a local craft fair or a Fall Festival.
  • Check out a Farmer’s Market.
  • Make a pinecone bird feeder, then watch it get devoured.
  • Bask in Fall flavors, like pumpkin, cinnamon, squash, cranberries, and more.
  • Unbox all of your winter clothing, and get it ready to wear again. Then put on a sweater fashion show!
  • Donate any clothing that no longer fits to a homeless shelter.
  • Find yourself in a corn maze.
  • Plant bulbs so that they will bloom come next Spring.
  • Get into the holiday spirit by volunteering.
  • Visit your local library and check out a Fall themed book.
  • Build a bonfire, and invite over your family and friends for S'mores.
  • Enjoy the weather with a hike or bike ride.
  • Try making your own butter for some homemade pumpkin muffins.
  • Take a trip to the park, and bring a picnic lunch.
  • See a football game, whether it be a Patriots game or a local high school match.
  • Have a football themed party, and invite friends and neighbors.
  • Make the Fall leaves into art projects.
  • Start a Fall tradition, like making your own popcorn balls.
  • Schedule a hayride for the whole family.
  • Two words: candy corn.
  • Take a ride in a hot air balloon, or visit a balloon festival.
  • Start thinking about Halloween – making decorations and (if you feel brave) costumes!
  • Once Halloween is over, you can begin crafts and projects for Thanksgiving.
  • Visit a pumpkin patch, and pick out a carve-able pumpkin for each person.
  • Pick your own apples at a local orchard.
  • Use those apples in a kitchen project – like an apple pie or candy apples.
  • Start your holiday shopping early so that you have lots of time to find perfect gifts.

As you recover from your choice of a Fall activity, spend your downtime making sure that your home and car are ready for the harsh winter months. Just call Vargas and Vargas Insurance at 617-298-0655 for a home and auto insurance review.
