The air has turned sharper, the leaves are changing color, and the nights are getting shorter and darker. It will soon be time to decorate the Christmas tree, but before you do, there’s another season to enjoy. The fall brings some wonderful opportunities to enjoy nature, seasonal food, and get creative. This year, with the pandemic, there are even some surprise activities popping up. Do you have your broomstick or your wizard’s hat out? If not, you still have plenty of time. Here are 5 fun things to do in the Fall.

A Trip to the Pumpkin Patch

Are you desperate to make pumpkin pie but have yet to see any sign of the seasonal vegetables in store? Or maybe you just fancy a fall trip to the farm with the kids. Many local farms offer families the chance to come and collect their own pumpkins. Walk up and down the channels of pumpkins in the sharp fall air and choose the ones that stand out most. An excellent seasonal day trip for the family. 

Drink Pumpkin Spice Coffee

It’s that time of year again when pumpkin spice syrup is easy to find in the supermarket along with all of the other ingredients for making delicious pumpkin spice coffee. To make this fall favorite, you will need pumpkin spice syrup or allspice, ground coffee, and cinnamon. Mix the ingredients in a small bowl and place it into the filter of a drip coffee maker. Operate the coffee maker as normal. When done, pour mugs of pumpkin spice coffee. Add cream and sugar for extra flavor. 

Take a Leafy Walk

Even if you’re not the type of people to take nature walks, it can be a hard thing to resist at this time of the year. In the fall, the trees prepare for the winter months by conserving their energy. All of the energy that is used to keep the leaves green is taken inside the tree trunk, causing the once green leaves to turn brown and yellow before decorating the ground. In a few months, the gorgeous color will all be gone, so don’t miss it. 

Go to a Drive-in Cinema

With the global pandemic in full swing, we are gearing up for a Christmas like never before, but even the pandemic can’t dampen our seasonal spirit. Companies and businesses across the country are thinking outside the box and using settled debt, to bring some fun ideas to the table. It’s not the 1950’s but drive-in movies can be just as much fun for us as they were for previous generations. Check out your local guide to find out if one is open near you. 

Make Halloween Costumes

Fall is both spooky and creative in equal measure. Halloween’s tradition goes all the way back to the ancient Celts, who believed that the spirits of the dead returned to their homes at this time of year. So they made scary masks to frighten them off. Nowadays, it’s a chance to get creative. Work with the kids on some original costume ideas and spend the fall season, putting them together. 

Fall just might be my favorite season and this year, we will definitely make the most of it!
