Fall Family Activities

  • 01

    Get the Kids Active

    Find out where you can pick some apples with your children and get them climbing trees for the fruit. Think of all the recipes these apples will make and encourage your children to enjoy the picking while they think of baked apples. If they like applesauce, remind them of the delicious applesauce they can make with you after the apples are picked. Put the apples in a big bin of water and dunk for apples at a Fall party.

    Teach Your Teens

    Collect some fall fruit and teach your teens how to do some canning. The lost arts will be lost if you don't teach your teens how to preserve by working with them to do the canning process. Teaching your children some survival techniques like canning will be something they can use right now. They can also get their friends together in the early fall another year and teach them about canning. Make sure you have them research well so they can properly to avoid contamination or allow bacteria to collect in their poorly canned products. Canning takes concentration and is fun for teens to learn.

    Garage Sale

    Now that summer is over, think about cleaning the garage and putting together a sale. Have everyone in the family contribute at least 3 things to the sale that they do not want anymore. Plan you sale one weekend when everyone can help in some way while the sale is going on. If there are things to do, change those things or change the date of the sale. There can be people putting up signs, running for change if needed and bagging items bought. A garage sale can be a fun activity and the proceeds can go toward a family vacation.

  • 04

    Trimming In the Yard

    Fall is the best time to cut back and trim trees and shrubs. It can be a family activity if you make it fun. Invite the neighborhood children to a back yard clean up party. You children can invite their best friends and everyone can do something to help to clean up the yard. Let responsible adults run the clippers and hedge trimmer. Tell everyone in a certain length of time there will be a cook out and smores for all who work in the yard. Make sure it is alright with the parents of these children to have them help.

  • 05

    Harvest Party

    Fall is when the gardens are shutting down for the season. Have your children gather all the berries and produce from your garden for a delicious harvest dinner party. If your children have friends that would like to join in the family harvest party they should be encouraged to bring their parents. If the neighbors have produce to share ask them to bring something to add to your abundance. If you can, get a permit for a bonfire and enjoy roasting marshmallows in the flames with the supervision of the adults. All left over food is divided up so each family takes home some.
