It started as a simple trip to the pumpkin patch. The next year we did it again…at the same pumpkin patch. And as all of us with children know, that’s all it takes to make something a tradition!
From there, the Autumn traditions grew into things like making Scotcheroos and creating a Blessing Tree and so much more! We finally decided it made sense to put together a Fall Bucket List every year (see my Thanksgiving Holiday Homeschool Planner for the page we use to keep track of this list! GET IT HERE >>)
Here are a few simple ideas you can easily put together for your family this Fall! If you are looking for even more ideas, check out my Fall Family Traditions Bundle – It’s FREE!
Apple Unit Study – This post has TONS of ideas, so just pick a few to start with and build from there. I’d recommend the Apple Taste Testing as a fun, but simple place to start! (If you are looking for a more in-depth Fall Taste-Testing, check out the FREE Fall Bundle!)
Read a Fall-ish Book – This could be anything from How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World to The Pumpkin Parable. A new favorite of ours is The Gift of the Tree which portrays the science of decomposition with such beauty!
Make an Autumn treat – We all have Thanksgiving foods we hold dear, but our family also has many foods that have become associated with traditional Autumn-fare.
Think about Fall flavors your family already likes and then look for recipes to try. Here are a few of the special Fall foods our family enjoys:
- Pumpkin Crumble
- Caramel Apple Dip
- Autumn Pancakes
- Taco Soup
- Caramel Apple French Toast Casserole
Do a simple Fall craft – My kids loves to make hand-turkeys (the ones you trace around your hand and add a body and call it a turkey!) You can add colored construction paper “feathers” to an empty toilet paper roll and draw a turkey face or try this more unique toilet paper roll owl. And of course, I’d love for you to try our Blessing Tree Craft! It’s been a part of our traditional fall activities for many years!
Remember, when you are starting a new family tradition, it is important to go slow and keep your expectations in check. It’s very easy to think it has to look just so or it isn’t good enough or worthy enough to be a family tradition, but that simply isn’t true. If you have fun and keep it light-hearted, you’ll find your family will enjoy the activity no matter how ugly or chaotic it turns out to be!
