Fall is my favorite season. I think it's the refreshing weather, the colorful leaves, the sense of a new beginning with school starting...
Every season has great opportunities to create family traditions, and fall has wonderful choices. Here's a few:
Creating traditions for your family each season gives a heightened sense of anticipation and excitement. Parents might enjoy trying one or all five with their children. These are also great ideas for grandparents to share a special autumn day with their grandkids too!
What kinds of fall traditions do you have?
We don't have too many Fall traditions...mainly just Thanksgiving/Christmas ones. These are good ideas, Thanks for sharing!
We are a Fall Family! WE LOVE IT! Hubby is only off on Sundays so we scramble like mad to get something done each week. We have been apple picking, potato harvesting, leaf peeping on the Hudson river while visiting son at Marist college, This Sunday we will be hiking up the Appalachian Trail to Sunfish Pond at the Delaware Water Gap or pumpkin picking...decisions, decisions. I usually take the kids to a farmers market or veggie picking at local farms on saturdays and show them how to cook them when we get home. The baking and roasting is DAILY! Hot cocoa and smores by the firepit. (grown up white hot cocoa for mom n dad using Godiva white chocolate liquor) Fall decorations start going up Oct 1st and get scarier and scarier as Halloween approaches. Nov 1st it all becomes harvest themed. Nights curled up watching scary movies from Poltergeist to Nightmare Before Christmas... there just arent enough days in the fall for this family!
I love the fall, and I love Halloween. I try to get in as many fall/Halloween activities as possible this time of year!
