Fall Traditions

Fall Traditions

Fall is such an amazing time of year; the crisp mornings, the darker evenings, and the fascinating shades of orange, red and yellow are so magical to me. Here are some fall traditions we use to make this season extra wonder-fall!

1. Visit a farm – there’s something so wonderul about farms in the fall. The combination of the pretty leaves, corn mazes, and fields littered with pumkpins fills me with joy. It’s also SO nice being able to go outside and not melt instantly haha.

2. Go to a pumpkin patch – Visiting a pumpkin patch to look at, and maybe even pick out, some cute pumpkins is a must.

3. Bonfire Night (November 5th) – Not something that many Americans will celebrate, but being from England means Guy Fawkes Night holds many fond memories for me. Since there aren't local celebrations for it over here, we like to make a little fire, roast marshmellows, and light sprinklers with the girls (and some friends if we're lucky). If you’re in England, finding a local firework show is a must!

4. Jump in leaves – You’ve got to gather them up anyway, so why not make a nice pile of leaves, put on your wellies and enjoy!

5. Drink hot chocolate – My kiddos would happily drink hot chocolate on the hottest Summer nights, haha. But there’s something extra delightful about enjoying a warming mug of cocoa on a chilly fall evening. If you’re feeling creative, hot chocolate bombs seem to be all the rage at the moment. There are loads of recipes on Pinterest if you want to give them a go.

6. Apple picking – From my experience, this is a pretty quick activity as the excitement wears off after they’ve picked a handful of apples. However, it’s still very fun, and you can enjoy baking up lots of delicious treats with your pickings. You could even look for a pick your own on a farm to make a day trip out of it.

7. Light a fire – This is our first house with a fireplace, and once the days get cooler I look forward to lighting it and cosying up in it’s warmth. You could also have a fire in a firepit outside for a similar effect.

8. Roast marshmallows – Light up a fire inside or out and get roasting. You could even make smores!

9. Go for a crisp walk with a hot coffee – Okay, you can definitely do this without the coffee, but I love to take mine along with me! It’s such a great feeling wrapping up and going for a refreshing walk when the weather’s chilly. The kids love it too, and you can talk about all the fall changes you see around you.

10. Snuggle up and watch a movie, or the football, either way your family will love to cozy up together.

I hope this gives you some fun ideas for things to do this time of the year, and that you enjoy making many wonderful memories with your family. Let me know below what things you love doing in the fall!
