I love summer, but there’s a lot to be to said for fall too. As the temperatures cool down and the leaves change, there are lots of fun ways to get out (or stay in) and enjoy the season. We’ve come up with 30 fall activities for families–and this list doesn’t include video games or phones, just family bonding. Yay!

I don’t even know where to find acorns.
Look for different ways to make apples.
How about decorating pumpkins with the leaves?
Use the leaves to make pictures.
Thanks for all the great ideas.
This is a great list. Thanks for the printable.
After you pick the apples, do an apple bobbing contest.
Going to print this out for my niece. She is always looking for special things to do with her 4 yr old daughter on days off from work.
It’s fun to carve pumpkins. or just paint them.
