Fall is an amazing time of year for bonding with your family. The temperature is comfortable, the bugs are long gone, and you don’t have to carry sunscreen everywhere you go!
So, bust your cozy sweaters out of storage and clear up plenty of space on your phone for pics. Now is the time for making memories (and looking super cute while doing it).
Your family will have hours of fun wandering the orchards and picking the apples. Just be sure to get there early to beat the crowds.
Did you know that raking and bagging leaves can burn approximately 350 to 450 calories an hour? And it’s OK if the kids keep jumping in your piles. They’ll have a blast and you’ll keep on raking!
Outdoor Scavenger Hunt
