Autumn is upon us!
The cooler weather and beautiful scenery bring a festive feeling the whole family can’t help but enjoy. Here are some fun ideas to brighten up your home this fall season, while keeping each member of your family entertained.
It can sometimes be a challenge to find fun crafts that are easy enough for your youngest kids to be a part of, while exciting enough for your older kids (and you!) to enjoy. However, with some creative ideas using everyday household items, you can engage in some family projects that are certain to delight every member of your household.
Warm and Cozy Foods
Nothing says autumn better than some delicious soups and stews on a breezy fall day. Let the kids get involved by mixing and chopping, turn your slow cooker on, and enjoy the sweet aroma of home-cooking the entire day through.
DIY Autumn Decor
Assign an area of your home (from an entire room to just a simple, small shelf) to each member of your family, asking them to get creative by finding outdoor items to utilize as decorations. From filling a vase with acorns to painting some pinecones found on your lawn, a little nature can certainly make a room pop for the season.
Between all of your fall decor and by simply spending more time indoors, finding a place to keep your belongings can be difficult. By renting a small self storage unit, you can keep your belongings safe and secure until next season, maximizing your space at home for items you need, while helping your rooms feel less cluttered.
Pumpkin picking, leaf piles, fall festivals, corn mazes… Autumn certainly has a ton to offer each family, usually at a minimal cost. Search through your local town website for a list of various fall-themed events taking place within various parks and facilities and spend your afternoon making some beautiful memories (without breaking the bank).
“The spring, summer, is quite a hectic time for people in their lives, but then it comes to autumn, and to winter, and you can’t but help think back to the year that was, and then hopefully looking forward to the year that is approaching.” -Enya
So take some time to enjoy simple times as a family, doing crafts, playing outside and cooking together, all while staying organized. These are the moments you’ll cherish for years to come!
