									3 Great Fall Family Activities For Kids of All Ages Fall is here and the cooler weather
means it's time to get outdoors and have some fun. If your summer was spent crowded
around the air conditioner trying to stay cool, now's the time to enjoy the changing leaves
and beautiful fall weather. Though there are many different activities for families to
enjoy, now is a great time to visit a local pumpkin patch, go kite flying and visit an apple
orchard. Visit A Local Pumpkin Patch A pumpkin patch is a great fall tradition. They are
usually open throughout October and feature hayrides into the pumpkin fields so you can
choose your own pumpkins. Some even have activities like mazes carved into cornfields,
haunted houses and small petting zoos so there's something fun for all ages. If you visit at
night, make sure to bring marshmallows, chocolate and graham crackers for s'mores.
After a visit to the pumpkin patch, part of the fun is carving spooky or silly designs into
your pumpkins. Don't forget to roast the pumpkin seeds for a special fall treat. Flying A
Kite Flying kites are another fun fall activity. If your children are younger, try to keep it
simple with a single line styles. These are exactly what their name suggests - it is
attached to a single piece of string, which allows it to fly in medium speed winds. A
single line kite is typically the easiest to fly out of all the different types and comes in
different shapes like diamond, delta, box and parafoils. Kids can even pick out special
designs like sharks, birds, butterflies and rainbows to brighten the sky. Once kids have
mastered a single line kite, it may be time to move on to stunt kites. These are typically
larger than a single line and are sturdier, meaning they can fly in higher wind speeds and
can even withstand a few crashes. Stunt kites have two or four lines connected to the kite
which allows the kite to do tricks like dives and loops. Nearly everyone can fly kites. All
you need is an open area, a little wind, a kite and you're ready for a fun fall day outdoors.
Visit An Apple Orchard Autumn means apple season, so if you're lucky enough to live
near an apple orchard, take the time to pick your own apples. The orchards also often
boast all different kinds of foods made out of apples like apple pie, caramel apples, apple
cider and apple butter so make sure your family comes hungry to take advantage. If it's
cool outside, enjoy your apple cider hot and your pie warm with vanilla ice cream
melting over the top. If the weather is warm, apple cider makes a refreshing cool drink.
Many orchards even offer horse drawn carriage rides out to the apple fields, which kids
of all ages will enjoy and some orchards even have their own bee colony so you may be
able to take home some fresh honey. Visiting a pumpkin patch, flying kites or visiting an
apple orchard are just a few of the many fun family activities that go hand in hand with
the beautiful autumn weather. These activities are perfect for nearly everyone. About the
