Get Outdoors With These Activities

Fall is a great time to go and spend time outside with friends and family. The weather is not as hot as summer and not bone-chilling like the winter. This season, spend some time outdoors with your friends and family to make the most out of these shorter days. If you need somewhere to start, Cafe Mom has some great ideas for you!

Fall Fun At Home

Have fun at home this autumn by planning fun activities in your backyard! Kick off the season with a fun outdoor movie night. By hanging a sheet in your backyard. Or go to some of the few places still open. Together, or separately, have a bonfire where you can get all cozy. If done on a different night than your fun movie night, maybe tell some not-so-scary ghost stories and spend time cuddled up as a family! Plus, make s’mores, the perfect treat for a cool night in front of the fire.

Take A Day Trip

Spend a day enjoying the fall weather without having to go far. You can pick apples at a local orchid and make a pie or caramel apples when you get home. Take the family to a farmers market to explore the fresh produce and plan a fun meal for the night! This could be a great way to introduce your kids to some new veggies, like acorn squash. Or make a scavenger hunt for them to find the vibrant, fall produce while you are there.

Or enjoy a peaceful day outside with a fall-themed picnic. Grab some seasonal favorites, maybe soup, jams, apple cider, caramel apples, or roasted pumpkin seeds. Enjoy your family or friend’s company while the cool air shake loose some leaves.

Spend A Weekend Outside

Take some time away this fall and go camping for the weekend. While it will be a bit chilly, camping is a great way to admire the beautiful changes in nature. Plus, you can spend the weekend hiking or biking with your friends and family to see more gorgeous views!
