Make A Family Meal Together

Get everyone in the family involved in helping with dinner for a fun indoor fall activity.  Whether the dinner turns into a food disaster or is the best dinner you have ever had, memories will be made!

Since pumpkins and apples are so popular during the fall, why not make your favorite fall dish or make something new for everyone to try. Don’t worry, there is always pizza delivery available if it’s a bust!

Create A Few Crafts Together

Spend an entire day, or most of it, making various crafts throughout the day. Kids will love getting creative and will also love that mom and dad are helping them and having fun with them.

One fall craft that would be fun is to create your own fall play dough. You can also use the crafting time to create your own fall decorations.

For instance, painting leaves or making crafts with leaves. Once finished, have the kids decorate the house with their new crafty designs or play with the playdough they just made.

When you are able to get outside, build a collection of leaves or acorns and turn them into decorations. My kids like to collect rocks to paint them.

Spend the Day Watching Movies Together

Spending the whole day watching movies together and doing nothing else can sometimes be therapeutic. Some days we just need a day where we don’t have to do anything!

Getting the family together to spend the day watching movies is a great indoor fall activity that everyone in the family can take part in. Everyone can take turns picking a movie and the snack to enjoy.

The snack is really the most important part so have them help you make it.
