Autumn; the season of nature’s warmest colours and freshest air. Since this wonderful time of year seems to pass in the blink of an eye, we thought of some seasonal activities that’ll allow you to make the most of it. Read on to discover them all.
1. Go on a Nature Hike
Put on your coat, scarf and best walking shoes and let yourself be swept away by the beautiful fall landscapes while taking a walk in the open air. Whether you decide to explore a national park, try out a hiking trail or simply wander the streets of your own neighborhood, and whether you do this alone or with friends, we promise this activity will have you feeling your all-time best. Take it a step further by capturing photos of the wonderful views to show your family and friends!
2. Visit a Pumpkin Patch
Set a date and go to a magical place that looks like it came straight out of a movie: a pumpkin patch! Here, you can find pumpkins of all colours and sizes imaginable. Perfect for family time, some locations also offer a petting zoo and a corn maze – hours of fun are guaranteed!
3. Cook Fall Dishes
It’s time to cook seasonal recipes that are as delicious as they are comforting! Whether you have a sweet or savoury tooth, you’ll certainly find something suited to your taste. Squash soup, apple crisp, stew, pumpkin pie, quiche, maple-glazed vegetables… The possibilities are endless! You can also take a break from cooking and make reservations at specialty restaurants too. No matter which recipes you choose to try, they will undoubtedly have your home smelling fantastic.
4. Decorate for Halloween
If you like to receive little costumed visitors at your door and hand out candy, this activity is for you! Let your creativity run free and spruce up the exterior of your home in anticipation of Halloween night by carving original designs and faces into pumpkins. There’s also a variety of economical and easy DIY projects that you can make your own!
5. Have a Movie Day
On cooler or rainy days, what could be better than snuggling up in your coziest pyjamas and fluffy blankets? Light your favourite scented candle and relax in front of a Halloween movie (or even a horror movie, depending on your preferences!) to relax in a very fall fashion.
