So, let’s cut to the chase.

Help your neighbors to pick apples

All you have to do is find an apple orchard near you and start picking. This is really an activity suitable for all family members, it offers you numerous possibilities, and after physical work, you really sleep much better.

Do you know what we like best? Many cities have different fall festivals where you can enjoy apple donuts and apple cider in addition to apple picking.

Have fun with leaves

It’s no secret that kids of all ages love to play in the dirt, and the ground full of golden leaves is a perfect time and opportunity to do so. You know what we mean, the simplest, yet so entertaining games like jumping and rolling and, of course, tossing into piles of leaves?

For example, you can persuade the youngest to make full use of autumn’s orange, red, and bronze color palettes. All you need to do is get a color chart from your local DIY store and ask the kids to match the colors on the chart to those you can find on leaves as well as in some other objects around the property.

Consider homegrown pumpkins for next season

Are you familiar with the fact that pumpkins have been cultivated in North America for almost 5,000 years? Regardless of whether you use them for carving or cooking, you can’t go wrong with pumpkins.

Just imagine how good it would be next season to decorate your outdoor and indoor space with fresh specimens that you have grown with your own hands. Younger family members would surely enjoy it the most. Take a few minutes of your family meeting to consider growing your own pumpkin next year.

Cater to the wildlife

It would be good to devote some free time to cleaning and maintaining bird baths and feeders. Since not all birds are migratory, the ones that spend the fall and winter in your neighborhood will really appreciate clean and supplied water and food sources.

Don’t forget that fall is a great time to plan plants to plant in early spring that will help invite wildlife like butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds into your space.

Build a scarecrow

One of the most favorite fun fall activities for kids and families and at the same time, to be honest, one of our fall staples is making the scarecrow. Since colder days don’t mean the end of planting vegetable crops, making and putting scarecrows is a great way to scare birds away from new plants as they start to grow.

We usually make him with old clothes and a bundle of hay and sit him right by our front door. Take a look at this article and find out more details.

To conclude

This was a list of our favorite fun fall activities for kids and families. Each of them is suitable for all age groups, but the youngest will like it the most. Joint activities are indeed an excellent way to maintain good relations and build mutual trust between all members of this community.
