Fall is undeniably the best season. There are countless activities to enjoy. How could someone not fall in love with fall?
Some of my favorite fall activities are the simplest. Cuddling up in a warm blanket with a big bowl of popcorn while watching “Gilmore Girls” might be my personal favorite activity, but other activities include jumping in a leaf pile. I mean come on! How classic is that?
Pumpkin carving is also a great way to enjoy what fall has to offer. There is pumpkin everything these days. Although pumpkins have become synonymous with fall, pumpkin carving has been traditionally associated with the fall season. Recently, the Wesleyan high school cross country teams enjoyed a fun pumpkin-carving party.
While pumpkin carving might be enjoyable for most, one can never go wrong getting cozy up to a warm, crackling fire. Whether it may be the roasting of marshmallows to make s’mores or sitting with boots and a beanie with a loved one by your side, an aesthetic bonfire will never go out of style.
There are also many cute fall arts and crafts, like making the perfect bird feeder. This is probably one of the easiest fall crafts. All you need is a pine cone, a few tablespoons of peanut butter, roughly a half a cup of bird seed and a string to hang the bird feeder. First, tie the string around one side of the pine cone, then coat is with as much peanut butter as possible, after that, you drench it in bird seeds. This is so easy and definitely kid-friendly.
Car rides through scenic routes are exciting especially with good friends. The best thing about fall drives, in the south especially is, being able to notice the changing of the leaves. This is truly God’s creation at work.
Soaking up some Vitamin D while enjoying some tasty southern comfort foods and a candle is a perfect way to enjoy the autumnal outdoors. Some fall food may include: pumpkin pie, apple pie, chili, mashed potatoes, grilled cheese or apple cider!
