Crisp nights, warm snuggles, and lots and lots of treats. What’s not to love about fall? It’s such a fun time of year, especially when you get to do things as a family! If time is limited and you only have a weekend to enjoy fall, here are some simple ideas on fun things you can do for a fall family weekend. None of these ideas are groundbreaking, but hopefully, they remind you that the low-key things can still be fun and make for a memorable weekend!
4 Low-Key Ideas for a Fun Fall Family Weekend
1. Take a fall walk
Walks are free and there’s something for everyone! I love to bring my camera and capture some of the fall beauty. Younger kiddos will have fun just exploring and if your kids are older you can make up a scavenger hunt for them and have them find pinecones, yellow leaves, etc! You could always take home your findings and make it into a craft for some free and meaningful fall decor!
2. Visit a farm/pumpkin patch/apple orchard
Even if you don’t plan on buying or picking anything, it’s not fall without going to at least one of these! It’s still fun to just walk around and see the pretty scenery and everyone getting in the fall spirit!
3. Enjoy your fall treats at a beautiful location
Who can resist going a whole season without caramel apples and apple cider donuts? Instead of just picking them up at the store and snacking on them throughout the week at home, get your favorite treats and bring them to a beautiful location to enjoy them! It creates more of a memory!

4. Bake cookies & cozy up in front of the fireplace with a hot drink
Whether you want to make a whole afternoon out of baking cookies or buy a pre-made mix like me (no judgment here haha), cookies and cider in front of the fire are some of the best ways I can think of to spend a cozy fall weekend! No fire? No problem. Scroll to the end of this post for a great idea on how to create a faux fireplace that is still super cozy.
