I’m sure by now you know, I adore fall. The beginning of a new school year and new beginnings. Getting back into a routine – and soccer. The turning of the leaves, the warm sunny days still, with crisp autumn evenings. Salted caramel mocha’s and pumpkin spice lattes. And that’s just the beginning. Halloween, Thanksgiving – it’s all fall.
Every year there are certain things I just have to do for fall, traditions for me and my kiddos. I thought I’d share some with you, and encourage you to make your own list of fun fall activities.
31 Fun Fall Activities:
1. Go to a Pumpkin Patch
2. Go on a hay ride
3. Find you way out of a corn maze
4. Make an apple pie from scratch (Check out my recipe here .)
5. Rake leaves, and then jump in the pile and throw them in the air.
6. Buy the most ridiculous and/or comfy pair of socks around and a pumpkin spice latte, then go home and curl up with a good book and relax
7. Go to a kid’s soccer game and cheer them on!
9. Make caramel apples
10. Go to a high school football game
11. backyard bonfire with smore’s and hot cocoa
12. Have a picnic in the park (and here’s 5 reasons why I think you should take your kids to the park)
13. Eat pumpkin pie
14. Go to the Zoo. It’s so much fun in the fall!
15. Make homemade chili
16. Get a jump-start on Thanksgiving….create a “thankful” list
17. Buy some fall colored nail polish and give yourself a mani/pedi
18. Visit a haunted house
19. Drink apple cider (or a steamer!)
20. Make leaf art with the kids
21. Go on a walk and enjoy the autumn weather!
22. Plan a date night
23. Bake homemade bread
24. Attend a farmers market
25. Make trick or treat bags for all of the little goblins on the 31st!
26. Plan thanksgiving dinner and try a new recipe!

This is a great list 🙂 I would love for you to share this post and any other Fall related post you have, at this week's It's Fall Y'all ~ Linky Party. Hope to see you there!
I'm an Oregon girl transplanted into the Florida pan handle (our first year here) and I'm starting to fear that they don't actually have Fall in this strange state. . .no mountains, not enough coffee shops, and no fall. . .so jealous.
Oh no! I do love that Oregon has a little bit of everything here! I'll make sure I post lots of Oregon pics for ya! 😉
What a great post!! I'd love to have you come over and link up to our Pumpkin Linky Party going on for the next 30 days. Hope you can make it. Following. Linda

I'm sipping a pumpkin spice latte right now. Have you ever tried mixing candy corn and peanuts together? YUM!!!!! Stopping by from the Weekend Blog Walk.
Love it! Especially #13… my husband is from the South and maintains that sweet potato pie is better. He is wrong. Found you on the Weekend blog hop!
I agree with every single item on this list! Fall is basically the best season ever! Thanks for sharing!
