5 Outdoor Fall Activities to Fit Your Budget

5 Outdoor Fall Activities to Fit Your Budget

With the summer heat fading and school in full swing, autumn is upon us. For many of us, autumn is the last opportunity to get outdoors and enjoy the weather before winter frost blankets our neighborhoods. If you are planning some family time this fall CreditBox has 5 fall outdoor activities that will fit your budget.

Picking Out the Perfect Pumpkin

Nothing rings in autumn like craving a jack-o-lantern! The process of visiting your local patch, picking the perfect pumpkin and carving a custom designed jack-o-lantern is something the whole family will enjoy. The best part about picking pumpkins is that it’s cheap and you can make a full day of it.

Make Something Delicious with Apples

If you live within an hour or so of an apple orchard, apple picking is an inexpensive way to spend a Saturday or Sunday. While it’s great to get outside and roam your local orchard the best part of apple picking is the tasty desserts that come after. The options are endless here, you could make an apple pie, apple cobbler or even homemade cider (or all three)! If you can’t make it to an orchard, a great alternative is your local farmers market.

Raking the Leaves

Yes, raking the leaves is essentially a chore. However, this routine chore has the potential to turn into family fun. Challenging your family to a contest of “who can build the highest pile of leaves” or divide your yard into equal sections for a game of “who can rake the fastest”. Offering a small prize to the winner will create a little extra enthusiasm and help you check this annoying task off your fall to-do list.

Make Your Hike a Scavenger Hunt

Take advantage of the beautiful weather this fall by going on a family walk or hike. You can add some extra fun to your hike by creating a scavenger hunt list.  It doesn’t matter if you’re in the woods or your backyard a scavenger hunt is sure to keep your kids engaged while you enjoy the outdoors.
