Summer is over, and now the days are getting shorter and colder. While you might miss the summer sunshine, Fall can be a wonderful time of year, and there are always a lot of things to do this season and in the run-up to Christmas. So, if you’re thinking about what you can do with the kids or even a group of friends during this time, here are some suggestions that are fun for all ages.
It’s an officially spooky season; therefore, a visit to your local pumpkin patch is a must. It’s the place to find the best and biggest pumpkins for your autumnal décor and, of course, making Jack-o-Lanterns! It’s a lovely tradition to keep with your kids, and if you’re lucky enough to get a sunny Fall afternoon, then this is a great way to spend it. Pumpkin picking is a wonderful seasonal activity that people of all ages can enjoy and helps them to get in the mood for Halloween.
Speaking of Halloween…don’t miss out on joining in with the local festivities, as these are always a lot of fun and a little mischievous. For grown-ups looking for thrills, going to a haunted house attraction or scare-maze can be a lot of fun. However, if you want something more suitable for younger children, going to see the local Halloween parade, or taking the time to visit the most famous parades in the country, could be the perfect way to get you all in the spooky mood.
See a Hockey Match
If your family is into sports, why not catch a hockey game during this time of year? Although the NHL runs until April, seeing players compete on the ice does have that wintery touch that can help to inspire a festive mood. You can find NHL tickets online, and if you have to travel to another town or city for the match, you can even make a weekend of it. You never know; this might soon become another tradition for you and your loved ones.
Perhaps you would rather be on the ice yourself? This is a classic festive activity to do during the winter months and can be a lot of fun. For some, it’s more of a challenge to stay on their feet, while others can glide elegantly with ease. No matter which category you fall into, spending an hour or so whizzing around on the ice can be a lot of fun. Afterward, you can all go and get hot cocoa to warm yourselves up!
Go to a Christmas Market
Finally, wandering around a gorgeous Christmas market is excellent to get you and your kids even more excited for the festivities, as well as being a great opportunity to do a bit of Christmas shopping! There is always lots of fantastic food to sample, perhaps a Santa’s Grotto for the kids, decorations, and gifts on sale, and so much more. So, if you want to get into the spirit of Christmas, a visit to these markets is a must.
If you’re thinking about planning some fun things to do with friends or family this Fall/Winter season, consider these classic past-times and enjoy them!
