Fun Fall Things To Keep The Family Sane


We all need a little help keeping on top of things as of late, especially those of us who are stuck inside for one reason as another. As such, it’s important to find ways to enjoy the company of the family with us, first and foremost. As the weather’s starting to change, so too are our options. Here are five ways you can keep the family entertained as we get deeper into fall.

Get moving

Given that many of us have to spend a lot more time at home lately, we should all be aware of the risks that can come with living an overly sedentary lifestyle. The single best way to ensure those risks, such as obesity and musculoskeletal injury, don’t happen to us is to stay active. Even if you don’t have a lot of space in the home, yoga can be a great way to ensure you get the movement that your body needs to stay limber and flexible.


Marathon some movies

The seasons are changing, but there’s one day your kids might especially look forward to. There are a lot of age-appropriate scary movies that could be perfect for getting some buildup in the lead-up to Halloween. You can even make yourself a special homemade candy popcorn recipe to make the movie marathon nights feel really special.


Enjoy some seasonal treats

You don’t need to put on some Halloween movies to give yourself an excuse to whip up some tasty treats, either. Baking is one of the most accessible ways to make delicious foods for you and the family and you can get the kids involved with these pumpkin cream cheese muffins. Not only can it help them learn the basics of a skill they’re likely to rely on later, but it’s a great way to get creative and even a little messy.


Craft some fall decor

Head out into the garden if you have one or any nearby park or woodland and you will be able to see the season change around you, with leaves changing colors dramatically before they fall away from the trees. It can be a very inspiring sight and you can encourage your children to take advantage of this inspiration with a wide range of fall leaf crafts, which can include painting with leaves, making decor pieces with them, and more.


Watch nature change

Just because we’re all practicing social distancing doesn’t mean that we have to stay indoors. You and your kids could get out into the wilderness away from the four walls around you, and enjoy camping in the fall. If you don’t have a campground close to your home, you can even enjoy doing it in your own backyard. The opportunity to sit under the stars, make smores, and get away from technology is worth it.


You don’t need a lot of money or a ton of space to have a fun fall. Hopefully, with the ideas above, you can keep everyone in a good mood when that boredom really starts to set in.
