As the weather gets cooler, it’s the perfect time to spend quality time with family and friends. And what better way to appreciate the beauty of fall than with family-friendly activities? We’ve got everything you need to know to participate in fall fun without leaving the comfort of your home.
Set the tone for fall activities with decorations and cozy accessories. Whether you add a few fall-inspired throw pillows or break out the pumpkin spice-scented candles, preparing your space beforehand will get your family excited for the fall fun to come!
Add warmth to your home and transform any space with fall-themed decor. From mixing and matching pumpkins on your front porch to designing your own DIY entry door wreath, the possibilities for fall decor are endless.
You can never have too many cozy blankets, right? Consider switching out your lightweight curtains, bedsheets and throw blankets with heavier materials for added texture and warmth. Look for fabrics made from cotton, corduroy and flannel to keep you cozy throughout the cooler months. Even something as simple as adding heavier curtains to windows can completely change the feel of a room.
With fall’s changing leaves and the holidays just around the corner, it’s one of the best times for cozy creative projects.
Make fall-inspired art prints with a leaf rubbing project or try your hand at carving an intricate pattern into your jack-o’-lantern. If you’re looking for an artistic challenge, consider trying a crochet project or basket weaving class. Crocheting or knitting are suitable for older children as well, making it a great group bonding activity. Knit each other scarves or a blanket for the winter!
Adorn your home with a DIY garland made from natural elements like pinecones, leaves, citrus fruits and cinnamon sticks. Add signature fall scents to your favorite spaces by experimenting with apple and cinnamon in homemade candles. Use the double boiler method to melt your wax and fragrance, pouring it into a fire-safe container and placing your wicks once everything is melted. Let your candle sit for at least 48 hours if you’re using soy-based wax.
Have a fall-themed movie night featuring your favorite films and snacks. Whether your family loves horror or favors the cozier side of fall films, you’ve got plenty to choose from that capture the season. Pile bean bags, comfy blankets and plenty of pillows to build the ultimate movie-watching experience. Bonus points if you create your own fall-inspired snacks like caramel popcorn or snack mix!
Nothing beats a hearty soup or baked good on a chilly fall night. Gather a few friends or family members to cook your favorite dishes for a grand fall feast. Whether you’re trying out recipes for your traditional Thanksgiving feast or hosting a fall-inspired potluck, sharing a meal with loved ones is the best way to spend quality time with family.
