Summer vacation may be long behind us, but that doesn’t mean we’re packing in the fun + adventures! The cool breeze is perfect for breaking out your favorite fall sweater + heading out for some fun activities from sunup to sundown! Here are five of our favorite ways to take advantage of this month’s festivities:
Go Apple Picking
Find your local apple orchard, corral the family, and get picking! Not only is this a great way to get the family together and having fun, it’s a great way to get the whole family moving and creating lifelong memories. Plus, many orchards offer different types of food + drink made from their orchard’s many types of apples. It’s a great way to try a variety of new foods and learn more about the process that goes into making each type of apple treat!
Check Out A Local Festival or Fair
Along with the season of pumpkin spice comes the season of festivals and fairs! Many states and towns have local fairs that are perfect for getting the community together and having fun. They generally offer rides for adults and children as well as face painting, hay rides, and pumpkin painting for your little ones! In addition, local crafters and businesses sometimes set up tables or food trucks. This makes it a perfect way to enjoy the season while giving back and connecting with your local community.
Get Lost In A Corn Maze
There’s nothing quite like pooling the family smarts to navigate your way through these seasonal mazes. If you tend to be a little more competitive, you can even divide it up and see who reaches the finish line first! The more competitive, the better. Try searching your local events on Facebook or reaching out to schools near you! Often, they will organize these mazes to raise money for school supplies for a class trip which makes it another great opportunity to give back while having fun!
Go On A Treasure Hunt
Pull out the eye patches + pirate hats to send your little ones off on a grand adventure! Hide their treasure somewhere around your house or neighborhood + create a scavenger hunt-style map to send them on their way. You can even crumple the paper + singe the edges to add a special touch.
