I wait all year to celebrate autumn! It’s my absolute favorite season and it never lasts long enough. Today’s post has some ideas of how you can enjoy fall all season, whether it’s an inclement weather day and you’re stuck inside or it’s beautiful outside and you’ve just gotta be out enjoying it!
INDOOR ACTIVITY IDEAS
Decorate Your Home for the Fall Season
Have a Halloween Movie Marathon
(lighthearted like Hocus Pocus / Casper OR scary horror films!)
Play Board Games or Electronic Games Over Zoom
Make Caramel Apples
(or any other delicious apple recipe with the apples you picked at the orchard)
Make Your Own Pumpkin Spice Coffee Drinks
Roast Pumpkin Seeds
Also love this additional recipe!
Bake a Pumpkin Loaf
The above link is a delicious recipe to make from scratch, but if you’re not the best in the kitchen, these delicious mixes (One // Two // Three) will make tasty loaves as well and they’re basically foolproof! If you’re in the market for a loaf pan, I have been eyeing this one for a while.
Here’s a list of even more tasty pumpkin / squash recipes to cook or bake!
