Fall Family Fun

Pumpkin bread, hot cider, apple picking, oh my! The back to school shock wave is over and your family is probably beginning to settle in to the rhythm of the new season. So what are you going to do this weekend as a family? Plan now for some fun, outdoor activities that combine the best of the season with some family togetherness.

Feeling inspired? Here are three approaches to autumn to get your wheels (leaves?) turning…

  1. Visit your farmers market this weekend and get the inside scoop. Inquire which ones are open for visits, have activities for young children and offer hands on fun like corn mazes and apple picking.
  2. Organize an apple cider stand in your neighborhood. Never got that lemonade stand off the ground this summer? Now’s the time to make good on that “maybe this weekend” promise.
  3. Welcome the kids home from trick or treating with warm apple cider from your family apple picking outing. There is nothing better than coming in from the cold to a warm and healthy snack.
