30 family-friendly things to do this Fall

Sharing is caring!

I love the Fall! Nature is so full of beautiful colors, the fog, the cool crisp air, the boots, scarfs and clothing, pumpkin spice, return of tv shows, Halloween and all the fun that comes with that holiday. Not to mention my birthday!! What’s your favorite thing about Fall?

Fall is a very busy time of the year, we have so many fun things going on. Each year I compile a list of fall festivities and traditions that my family will enjoy and we try to check everything off. If you’re local to the Puget Sound area and would like some ideas of fun stuff to do in our neck of the woods, check out this post for my families list.

I’ve made up a list of fall inspired fun, which you can find below. Choose one from the list or choose them all, just remember don’t beat yourself up later if you didn’t accomplish all on your list, just make it a priority for next year.
