Fall is here, and it’s time for cute family pictures, sweaters, apple cider, and pumpkin-flavored…everything!
The pumpkin patch is such an enjoyable fall attraction for kids and adults of all ages, and a great way to be active as a family. Pumpkin patches may have any number of activities so use that as an opportunity to enjoy the fall weather and get moving.
- Go through the corn maze – A great way to race and be active with the family!
- If there is an apple orchard available, get picking and try an Apple Cucumber Slaw, Homemade Apple Butter or Microwave Baked Apples.
- Spend time in the fields picking your own pumpkin (if allowed) and try Roasted Pumpkin-Apple Soup or Roasted Pumpkin Seeds.
- Find out in advance if food is available for sale. You may want to bring your own healthy snacks or lunch and have a picnic.
A really fun activity for younger kids is to make a silly face with the pumpkin to avoid the mess of carving. Here are my nieces and nephews creation, featuring Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head pieces!
