Fun Fall Family Ideas

Fall is the perfect time to make memories with the family.  Here are a few ideas that we enjoy doing every season.  Hope you get some inspiration!  Happy Fall!

Fall Foliage Crafts

Fall is a great season to make crafts.  Mother Nature provides many unique opportunities to be creative.  Take your kids for a nature walk, and collect things – we love scavenger hunts.  Use the time to teach them about the changing seasons, leaves, and the ways that nature readies for winter.


Visit a Pumpkin Patch

We love to visit the Sunny Side Pumpkin Patch in Assaria, KS.  They have hay-rack ride, cornmaze, pedal cart track, playhouses, slides, and more! Check out the website for more information.

Here are a few of my favorite Pumpkin Patch pictures.  We didn’t get to go this year because it wasn’t in the budget.


Check out Allie’s Birthday Cake this year!  It’s a pumpkin patch πŸ™‚

Paint or Carve Pumpkins

When your kids are little — give them a paint dotter, and let them go to town!

  1. I haven’t been feeling very crafty with the kids lately, but once fall hit, there were so many fun thinys we could do together! It has been great!
