Fall is one of the best times to make memories with your family. Whether it is carving pumpkins, hayrides, camping, or baking sweet treats, fall memories are memories kids and other members of the family remember forever! Come fall, you have probably found yourself surfing the web for “fun fall things to do near me.” If you feel like the options for fun fall activities in your town are limited, they are not! It is just time to get creative. Sometimes the best memories come from a creative idea you got on a whim.

Backyard Camping

Everyone is dreaming of some sort of family vacation right now. How about a staycation? Set up a backyard campsite. This also saves all the hassle of packing up, unloading, not having a bathroom, and well, not having access to things that are in the home. Begin backyard camping by pitching a tent to sleep in, setting up your favorite camping chairs, start a fire if your neighborhood allows it, and roast some delicious s’mores. After one time of doing this activity, it is likely to become a family tradition every fall.

Bake Some Pumpkin Bread

Bread can be one of the most fun and rewarding things to bake with your family. It can be messy, but that is the fun part of creating memories. There are plenty of fall recipes that are sweet treats for the family, but if you are looking for something that will satisfy your sweet tooth but is filled with quality ingredients, pumpkin bread is it! You can find delicious and easy recipes for Pumpkin bread pretty much anywhere.

Take a Hayride

Maybe those activities sound fun but you and your family are dying to get out of the house. One fun fall activity that will have you out of the house for a few hours is taking a hayride. Most towns have someplace that offers this in the fall, or a place nearby to travel to. A hayride is inexpensive for the family, creates laughter, and builds sweet memories that last a lifetime. If you are looking to DIY a hayride because your hometown doesn’t offer it, try loading up some hay in the bed of a GMC Truck, pick a designated driver, and safely sit in the back while you drive with no destination around town.
