Friday was October 1, which calls for lots of pumpkin spice beverages, pulling your favorite sweaters out of storage, and making plans to attend your local pumpkin patch. Although, there are far more ways to enjoy your favorite season. Grab your calendar and a pen to start planning how to check off your family’s fall bucket list. Start with these activities!
Plant Bulbs For Spring
Before the temperature drops too low to enjoy it, consider taking the time to do some yard work. If you are a tulips fanatic, according to The Old Farmer’s Almanac, about six to eight weeks before the frost arrives, it’s prime time to prep for gorgeous spring blooms! As the weather starts to cool and spring arrives, you will be welcomed with warmer air and pretty flowers. Look at you planning ahead!
Whether it’s at a state park or conveniently in your backyard, camping with the family is a memory you don’t want to miss out on. Wear your flannels, tell scary stories, roast marshmallows, and unplug from the social world this autumn.
Whip Up Apple Cider Donuts
The flavor of fall is primarily known as pumpkin, but what about apples? Go apple picking at a local orchard, and come home to bake the all-famous fall dessert: apple cider donuts. Coated in sugar and absolutely delicious, you won’t be able to resist licking every little bit off your fingers.
Host a Fall Theme Party
What better time to gather with your loved ones? Host a backyard bonfire, fire up the grill for dinner, or have a cookie baking contest. Be sure to decorate with fall neutrals, pumpkins, and candy corn filled jars.

Try New Candies
Speaking of candy, it’s time to munch on some. Your favorite childhood candy companies are still around, continually releasing seasonal flavors, so head to the store and walk up and down the candy aisle to find new flavors to try. Who knows, you may find your new favorite treat! If it’s a special fall flavor, you will want to run back to the store to stock up until October rolls around next year.
After completing these activities, you will fall in love with autumn even more!
