Fall Is For Family Fun

Focus on having fun and creating lasting memories. 

Sometimes you just need an excuse to plan fun family get-togethers. Fall is upon us, and is filled with all the excuses-and inspiration-you need! Before school starts and busy fall schedules make it more difficult to plan fun times together, think about the ways you can bring smiles, laughter, and sweet memories into your family’s life-and yours too!

If you have young kids and aging relatives, this would be a great time to get them together and create a fun bridge between generations with games, stories, and sweet conversations.

Ideas for creating family fun

A lot of people view family fun as all-inclusive and plan activities for family members as well as friends and coworkers who feel like family. Whatever your family situation is, there are lot of different ways to participate, have fun, and strengthen bonds. Here are a few:

Go camping. By getting away from technology, you can strengthen in-person connections with your family while you create memories.
Take a day trip to a zoo, historical site, park, or museum. These kinds of outings are not only fun and educational, they can also be great conversation starters
between generations.
Go fishing and/or boating. Create opportunities to teach, learn, connect, and have fun while enjoying nature.
Take a hike. Strengthen your bonds with family members while you exercise and enjoy the scenery.
Play board games. Whether competing as individuals or teams, board games are a fun way to spark conversations and connect with family members.
Have movie nights. Watching movies together-whether at the theater or at home-is a fun way to create memories and spark conversations.
Play games outdoors, such as croquet, cornhole, or frisbee. Whether you’re competing for a family game title or not, you’re likely to have fun and strengthen bonds with family members.
Get creative! Plan a scavenger hunt, have a picnic, make homemade ice cream or s’mores, play hide-n-seek, sleep under the stars, sing karaoke, play charades-or other activities that will bring out smiles in your family and create sweet memories.

Special days to consider
There are also days in fall with special designations that you can incorporate into your family fun activities. Here are a few examples:

• September 5, Labor Day
• September 11, Grandparents Day
• September 18, National Cheeseburger Day
• October 4, National Taco Day
• October 17, National Pasta Day
• October 31, Halloween
• November 9, Art Museum Day
• November 15, National Philanthropy Day
• November 24, Thanksgiving
• December 5, International Volunteer Day
• December 25, Christmas Day
• December 31, New Year’s Eve

However you decide to celebrate family fun, stay safe and treasure the memories.
