Fall is here and many people are celebrating the return of their favorite season of the year. In our opinion, turning leaves, cooler temperatures and pumpkin-flavored everything are the best ways to say goodbye to the heat of summer and hello to the crisp days of autumn. Whether you’re sipping on a Pumpkin Spice Latte or enjoying a hay rack ride through a pumpkin patch, be sure to make the most of your fall. If you find yourself falling into a rut, try one of these activities to perk your autumn up.
Do Something with Pumpkin
As one of the most common flavors of fall, the versatile pumpkin is a symbol of the season. There are so many ways to use the fruit beyond baking it into a pie. Try roasting the seeds or using pumpkin puree to make a frozen dessert. You might surprise yourself with all you can do.
Sure, fall is the season to watch football, but what about playing it? Grab some friends or family for a pick-up game (touch or tackle is
your choice). While there are plenty people who enjoy sitting on the couch and watching the game, we think it’s more fun to go outside and play one yourself.
Make Your Halloween Costume
Want a unique costume this year? Try making your own using sustainable materials or even old clothes. You’d be surprised how many great costumes can be put together with items you already have lying around the house. Not only will you save money, but you’ll stand out from the crowd of store-bought costumes.
Go on Walk
Fall is arguably the most beautiful season, so take advantage of the colorful display of leaves in your area by going on a walk. Not only will you enjoy the variety of colors, shapes and sizes of leaves, but you will also be adding a bit of exercise into your day.
Visit an Apple Orchard
Johnny Appleseed’s birthday is coming up this month, so why not celebrate by visiting an apple orchard. Apples are a great seasonal fruit, and picking them yourself is an added treat!
