Your Ultimate Fall Family Bucket List: 15 Fun Fall Activities for Kids

Gorgeous colors, incredible smells, and crisp breezes all make fall a wonderful time of the year. We’ve put together a list of fall activities every family can enjoy together. Make some unforgettable memories this autumn!

  1. Visit a Corn Maze
    Find your way through a local corn maze. If you have mostly little kids, visit during the daytime - if your kids are older and braver, try a haunted maze at night!
  2. Go on a Nature Walk
    Enjoy the beautiful colors nature has to offer this time of year. Be sure to bring along your camera and snap some great photos.

  3. Jump in the Leaves
    Rake the leaves in your backyard, then play around in them! It’s sure to be a fond memory for your little ones.

  4. Visit a Pumpkin Patch
    No fall season is complete without visiting a pumpkin patch. Let each of your kids pick out their own, then take them home to decorate!

  5. Carve Pumpkins
    Let each of your little ones carve their own pumpkin. Encourage them to be creative! (For small children, painting pumpkins is a great alternative.)
  6. Roast Pumpkin Seeds
    Make sure the insides of the pumpkins are put to good use by roasting pumpkin seeds. All you’ll need are seeds, salt, and an oven for a delicious and healthy snack.
  7. Go Apple-Picking
    Visit an orchard as a family and pick your own apples. Be sure to take some photos while you’re there!
  8. Make Caramel Apples
    Using apples you picked or apples you bought, make caramel apples. Get creative with your toppings!
