Fun Fall Activities

Fall is a favorite. Brisk mornings, warm days, cool evenings, and a permanent smile!  Open up the window, let in the fresh autumn air, and enjoy family, football, and flannels. It is officially time to pull out your favorite sweaters, cute boots and pumpkin spice up your life!
Here are some fun fall activities that are perfect for the family and will help you enjoy every minute of this glorious season! 

Go on a Drive

Going on a drive as a family is the perfect way to disconnect, spend time together and enjoy the brilliant fall colors as the leaves change. 

Visit a Local Pumpkin Patch

And be sure to take pictures! Stock up on a few pumpkins, hay bails, cornstocks, or any of your favorite fall decor items (all while supporting your local farmers)!

Make a Hearty Dinner for the Family

One of our very favorite traditions is “Dinner in a Pumpkin.” We eat it every year for Halloween, and it is a hearty recipe and perfect to give the kids before they head out Trick-or-Treating.

Dinner in a Pumpkin 
2 pounds of ground beef (or ground chicken)
1 cup chopped celery
1 onion, chopped
1/4 cup green onion, chopped
3 cups cooked rice
1 can Cream of Chicken soup
1 can Cream of Mushroom soup
3 tablespoons brown sugar
4 tablespoons soy sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
1 medium size pumpkin
Remove top and clean out the insides of the pumpkin. Brown hamburger (or chicken). In another pot, cook rice (white or brown) as directed on the package. Chop and saute celery, onion and green onion. Once tender, combine vegetables with hamburger, soup mixes, rice, brown sugar, soy and salt and pepper. Mix well. 
Put the mixture inside the pumpkin, and replace the lid. Place on a baking sheet and into a 400 degree oven. Bake until pumpkin is tender (1 ½ to 2 hours). Scoop out to serve, scraping sides of pumpkin in with the rice mixture. It is so good it will melt in your mouth! 

Create a Fun Fall Banner

Southern Crush at Home has some amazing inspiration to help you create your own banner to welcome fall. 

Throw a Game Day Party

Whether you are a college football (sorry, your choices will be limited this year) or NFL fan, or maybe just a huge fan of the food...there is nothing better than a bunch of finger foods, just chilling, eating and watching the game!
