Fall Adventures for Your Kid and the Kid in You

Consider these ideas for family-friendly fun this fall

After the long, carefree days of summer, fall can be a reality check. Kids are back in school, and things are picking up at work. You’re busy. And free time is limited. But with a little thought, you can take back your weekend and make the most of the season with your family.

Get out there this Saturday, and spend a day trying on new hats and exploring new interests. Pretend you’re a chef, an athlete or a modern-day explorer. Your child will discover more of the world around them—and maybe a passion within.

Here are 8 adventures to spark your imagination this fall.

Sharpen Your Culinary Skills

Fall’s food-filled holidays are a great excuse to level up your whole family’s cooking and baking skills.

Search online for culinary classes. You can browse and book family-friendly food experiences in cities across the globe, including your own hometown.

Want to take the fun outdoors? Test your family’s cooking chops over an open flame. Hot dogs and s’mores are easy favorites, but there are plenty of refined recipes that work well over fire, too.

Get Your Hands Dirty

Harvest season is a great time to visit a farm or an orchard—especially if you’re on the hunt for the perfect pumpkin.

You can search for a farm that’ll let you pick your own produce. And if your child’s still young, this might provide all the thrills you need.

Hungry for more? How about an advanced course in organic farming? Your family can lend a hand to a local farmer for a day or longer when you volunteer with WWOOF-USA®.
