Coronavirus-Safe Fall Activities


Ava Johnson

Looking for ways to keep busy and have fun during the fall while still preserving your health? You’ve come to the right place! Here are some fun activities to pass time with close family and friends!

  • Go on a family nature hike! This is a great way to bond and get some fresh air after spending so much time in the house. 
  • Have a picnic! Enjoy a nice meal at your local park. Pack autumn snacks, pumpkin spice lattes, pies, and more. This is budget-friendly and a fun way to spend time. 
  • Go pumpkin picking! Look for the most funny-looking or perfect ones. Maybe even have a photoshoot at the patch, too!
  • Visit an apple orchard! Again, this is another great photoshoot opportunity and you even get apples to make in apple pie and other yummy treats. It’s a win-win situation!
  • Roast marshmallows and drink hot chocolate! Yum!
  • Camp out in your own backyard! Set up a tent and stargaze with your loved ones. This is a safe, wonderful experience that everyone should try out at least once.
  • Watch your fall-favorite movies! Bust out the popcorn and get cozy under some blankets.
  • Jump into piles of leaves! Embrace your inner-child! 
  • Go for a drive! Roll down the windows and admire the beautiful color-changing leaves.
  • Host a baking competition! You and your loved ones could bake pies, cookies, cakes, and much more. Find out who the best chef is in the family or friend group!
  • Paint or carve pumpkins! A classic fall activity that is fun for people of all ages!
  • Have a backyard bonfire! Make s‘mores with your friends and spend some quality time with your family. 
  • Challenge yourself to find your way through a corn maze! This family-friendly activity could help make some unforgettable memories during this difficult time.
  • Visit a sunflower field! Sunflowers thrive in the fall, therefore, it’s a great autumn activity that will most likely end in a fall-themed photoshoot to spice up your Instagram feed. 
  • Make your own apple cider! Look up recipes and enjoy the tasty drink that apples so kindly provide for us. 
  • Cozy up with a book! Sometimes, it’s nice to decompress, grab your fuzzy socks, and curl up with a relaxing book to keep your mind off of things for a while.
  • Decorate your room for fall and the winter season coming up! Let your creativity flow.
  • Go on a bike ride with your friends or family! This could be refreshing for your mind and body after spending a majority of your time laying around during quarantine. 
  • Roast some pumpkin seeds to spice up your diet!
  • Have a spa day! Set yourself up a warm bath to take a break from the cold weather! Do your nails and give yourself a day to completely relax. 

Try to make the most of a bad situation and make fall memories that will last a lifetime! Stay safe and healthy!
