With just over three weeks to go until Winter arrives (on the 21st December), it’s time to start thinking about how you’re going to make the most of the rest of the season. Autumn is a great time of year for family activities, so I wanted to share with 7 autumn activities you have to do before winter arrives…



  • Going For A Walk In All The Stunning Autumn Colours



We have just a few more weeks of the stunning autumn leaves and whilst most of them have fallen, it’s still a beautiful sight to walk through. If you’re planning on a big family walk, ask your children to spot different colours and shapes of leaves as you go. Don’t forget to wrap up warm though, it is nearly winter after all!



  • Make A Root Vegetable Soup



Whether you’re a pumpkin or butternut squash fan, it’s the perfect time of year to make a cosy autumn soup that the whole family will enjoy.  


There are lots of different recipes available online so pick your favourite one, grab your apron and get everyone involved in making something delicious!



  • Visit Your Local Farm Shop



During Autumn there are always lots of different activities going on at farm shops. Whether it’s pumpkin pickings, vegetable displays or arts and crafts – it’s a great time to go with the kids.



  • Have A Cosy Night In Watching Movies



There is nothing better than lighting a few candles, switching on your fairy lights and cosying up under a comfortable blanket. Why not pick a few of your favourite movies and make a whole night out of it with some snacks and a takeaway?



  • Taking The Family Apple Picking



Autumn is the perfect time of year to go apple picking or any other fruit trees for that matter. If you’re looking for a fun and rewarding day out for the whole family, search your local area for picking farms and off you go!


The kids will absolutely love the satisfaction of picking their own fruit, and it makes for some cute family photos too!



  • Baking Some Delicious Autumn Recipies



Now that you’ve picked your own fruit, why not make some delicious autumn recipes using it?


Our family favourite is a gorgeous apple and cinnamon pie that has everyone going back for seconds. If that doesn’t take your fancy you can find more autumn pie recipe ideas if you visit the Bustle site here.



  • Make A Fire Pit In Your Garden And Toast Marshmallows



If you want to try a little autumn DIY project, try making your own fire pit in your garden. Once built you’ll be able to have the whole family around to spend the night toasting marshmallowsan American favourite at this time of year.


If you’re feeling extra adventurous, you could buy the ingredients to make smores.
