5 Creative Things To Do During the Fall Season With Family
Fall season is right around the corner and this may just be my favorite time of the year.
The weather is cooler, a hoodie is perfectly acceptable attire and football is on. The leaves start to change color and the mood in the air is pleasant. I can’t describe it any other way. The fall season is fantastic.
Below are five things that you can do with your family this fall season to take it all in and enjoy this time of year.

1. Get lost in a corn maze
Who doesn’t love a corn maze during the fall season? As a family, this is one of our favorite things to do during the fall. We have a few corn mazes that we visit each year.
Google “Best corn mazes near me” and you will be shocked at what you find in your area!
We try to find a new maze each year to add to our list. Some of the mazes take a long time to get out.
Especially when you let your kids lead the way!
2. Decorate pumpkins together
As it nears a change of seasons, take notice of all the different markets and stands in your area selling pumpkins. My kids love to pick out their own pumpkin, as each pumpkin is always so unique in its shape and texture.
Then, it’s time for the real fun to begin.
There are so many different pumpkin kits and design templates that you can find online.
If cutting open a pumpkin and pulling out the gross seeds isn’t your thing, paint the pumpkins instead!
3. Spend the fall season jumping in the leaves
Listen, if you have trees in your yard, this is one of those dreadful activities every year.
But someone’s got to do it. So why not make it enjoyable for everyone?
If you have never watched your kids jump into a giant pile of leaves in your yard, then you’re missing out. It’s a classic tradition that most people have had the chance to partake in. Make it a family affair and jump in those leaves!
4. Make halloween costumes together
My kids are seven years old and we rarely buy costumes for halloween. Instead, my wife makes the costumes in September and October and our kids enjoy helping with the process.
My wife has made the following costumes from scratch:
- Optimus Prime
- Fancy Nancy
- Old people
- Ice cream girl
- Cookie monster
- Abby Cadabby from Sesame Street
- Princess Peach
All it takes is a little creativity and maybe a little patience too. But the end result is well worth it!
5. Take a walk around your neighborhood admiring the fall season decor
One of the coolest things about the fall season is when everyone starts to decorate their homes for halloween and Thanksgiving.
Our family goes on what we like to call, “monster walks.”
This involves walking around our neighborhood looking for the scariest house. Which one has the scariest monsters in their yard?
Go when it’s dark out. Bring flashlights. And have your kids lead the way. It ends up turning into a mini scavenger hunt and our kids always love checking out everyone’s twist on the fall season!
