This year, many of our fall traditions may have to look different. Instead of football games and halloween parties, we’ll have to find different ways to celebrate the season. Now is the time to start planning ways to make fall feel special for you and your loved ones.
Instead of focusing on what we are missing this year, I encourage you to focus on what you can safely do and still enjoy. Who knows, maybe you will start a new family tradition!
- Backyard Camping: Set up tents and have your own camping experience at home.
- Go For a Hike: Find a new beautiful trail to explore. Don’t forget snacks!
- Visit an Apple Orchard: Find a local apple orchard that is allowing socially distant visitors.
- Have a Bonfire: Cozy up, roast marshmallows, and tell spooky stories.
- Bake Fall Desserts: Pie, pumpkin spice cake, chocolate chip cookies– the possibilities are endless.
- Backyard Movie Night: Set up your own “drive in” movie theater experience, along with cozy blankets and movie theater treats.
- Do a Fall Themed Back Yard Competition: Make your own olympics with leaf pile jumping, cornhole, pumpkin carving, and fall puzzles.
- Go For a Drive: Find a fun new destination for a day road trip.
- Have a Picnic: Pack a lunch and visit a new park in your city.
