Fun and Frugal Fall Activities

Posted by Admin on November 5th, 2008 filed in Uncategorized

Just because our economy is in a recession and times are tough all over doesn’t mean that families should not enjoy the lovely season upon us. I love autumn and it would be such a shame to miss out on all of the fun activities that can be found to do during this time of the year. I’ve compiled a short list of some fun (yet frugal) activities that are readily available in most areas of the country. With just a little effort any of these suggestions would create a lovely excursion. Have fun!

  1. Rake a leaf pile and jump in them.
  2. Find a corn maze
  3. Hike on a nature trail
  4. Feed the ducks or geese
  5. Do some fall baking — cookies, quick breads, pies, and more!
  6. Go to an apple orchard or a pumpkin patch
  7. Make a fall collage with leaves found on a walk
  8. Leaf rubbings
  9. Find a fall festival in your area — lots of cool activities!
  10. Make a pinecone birdfeeder with peanut butter and birdseed
  11. Go leaf peeping in your neighborhood
  12. Roast pumpkin seeds
  13. Plan a supper picnic.  This is a lovely idea, and so pleasant to sit under a tree, relaxing with a meal in the twilight.
