Feeling like you could use a little help to make these happen?
Try one of these apple cider recipes – fabulous for filling the house with warm, autumn smells and perfect to sip while planning a trip to a local orchard or pumpkin patch.
An easy family hike, even with little ones, is Dickson Falls in Fundy National Park. You can also have a great time exploring the changing trees along the trails at Mapleton Park, Centennial Park, or Irishtown.
Corn mazes can be daunting with little kids, but the Green Pig Market in Salisbury has several toddler-friendly maze adventures you can tackle.
Decorating can be such fun this time of year! You can choose a basic fall theme, or focus in on Thanksgiving and then Halloween. Why not try our quick DIY Pumpkin Stand from a pallet?
Want to spice up your pumpkin seed toasting? We’ve got a great tip and some yummy toasted pumpkin seed recipes to try!
Halloween movies may seem like a tradition for the older kids, but don’t forget about the classics like Peanuts: It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and kids’ shows with Halloween specials. We’ve also enjoyed a few great family scary-but-not-really-scary (okay for preschoolers) shorts on Netflix.
Fall is a wonderful time to take a moment with the family and reflect on the year so far. Talk about what made it special. What else you’d still like to do. And what things each member is thankful for. It can just be a chat while walking, a serious toast at Thanksgiving, or the prelude to Christmas letter writing.
