Fall is everyone favorite season, right? Football, weather is perfect [most of the time], all the best holidays, the list is endless.

Follow along with us below, I’ll be updating the list as we complete it!
- Make homemade apple sauce & enjoy it’s deliciousness
- Pick & carve the very first pumpkin
- Play with pumpkin guts & toast the seeds
- Have a bonfire & roast s’mores
- Meet out of town family
- Go trick-or-treating
- Go on a nature walk
- Finger paint with fall colors
- Have a first birthday!
- Enjoy a Thanksgiving feast
What are some of your favorite fall activities?
