Fall of 2020 did not go as planned.. let’s bring back the fun this year with these fall activities!
Take a scenic train ride
One of the best ways to peep the changing leaves? From the comfort of a train. The east coast has plenty of active railways that wind through gorgeous fall landscape. Try Amtrak from New York City to the bustling art community in Hudson, New York. Or, hop aboard the Ethan Allen Express in Vermont.
Visit the Farmer’s Market
Though it may seem like a summer activity, there’s no shortage of delicious fresh produce at your local farmer’s market in the fall. Look for gourds of all kinds to add to your seasonal decor, plus autumn harvests like Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, beets, and more.
Host an apple pie bake-off
Classic apple pie is synonymous with fall. Get your competitive juices flowing (and make the kitchen smell delicious) by having a friendly pie bake-off with friends.
Read ghost stories by the fire
Gather ’round the fire with your close friends and tell your scariest ghost stories(bonus points if you swear they’re true). Whether shrieks of delight or fear, a good time is sure to be had by all.
Make homemade candy apples
So many of fall’s greatest delights trigger memories of childhood nostalgia. Indulge in the old-school treat of candy apples by making your own, with a variety of yummy toppings. Alternatively, these chocolate turtle apple slices are always a hit.
Throw a scavenger hunt
The pumpkin patch, the apple orchard, or even your own backyard are all perfect locations for a fun fall scavenger hunt. Make printouts of your items and be sure to have a treat ready for the winner!
Make pumpkin art
Who says jack-o-lanterns get to have all the fun? Swap pumpkin carving for something a little more toddler-friendly by using crafts like paint, glitter, glue, or felt instead.
Create an Autumn Wreath
Sure, you could buy a fall wreath—or you could spend a little time flexing your creative muscles to make something custom. Peep these DIY wreaths, then visit your local craft store for all the items necessary to make a stunning wall or door hanging.
Craft with leaves
Leaf-crafting is easy, fun, and—since you’re likely to have a few spare mason jars, glue or twine around the house—completely free. Let the toddlers simply paint leaves, or go the more sophisticated route and create homemade fall decor like embellished luminaries.
Plant fall flowers
Celebrate the cooler weather by planting autumnal flowers that are sure to thrive: think chrysanthemums, goldenrods, and pansies. Now’s also the time to plant bulbs that’ll pop up the moment spring arrives.
Go for a hayride
Picking pumpkins isn’t the only way to celebrate fall at your local farm. The most underrated activity of all? A hayride that allows the whole family to kick back, relax, and enjoy the sights. Feeling brave? At night, many farms offer haunted hayrides, so grab your friends and prepare for bone-chilling chainsaws, creepy clowns, and shocking sights aplenty.
