This time of year is great. It’s not too hot or too cold, the air is crisp, and the colorful leaves are beautiful. If you’re looking for something to do this fall, whether it be with friends, family, or yourself, here are five fun things you can do (that aren’t just outdoors)!
Bake Something Try a new recipe for pumpkin pie or ginger cookies. They’re a great treat for this time of year. With a glass of milk, apple cider, or hot chocolate, a snack like this is sure to make someone’s day.
Knit Something Unique blankets and quilts never go out of style. As the bitter winds come, you can pick up the hobby of knitting, crocheting, or sewing. Pick up a starter guide or go to YouTube University to learn how to make something personal to snuggle in.
Create Something Going off the trend of crafting a blanket, you can try carving a pumpkin or try some cool new arts and crafts to display in your room or house to match those crisp and cool autumn vibes. Draw or write something about the season. Let these fall days inspire you to create and innovate around your house.
Watch Something Fall-themed content is more common than you think. A perfect autumn-themed show I love is an animated miniseries called Over the Garden Wall. It has everything you want for a nice fall night indoors, from mystery to charm to wonder.
Go to Something Bring your friends and family to some close by fall festivals or go explore some haunted house tours. Go for a walk, find cool leaves and irregular and pretty patterns in nature. Listen to some of your favorite music and enjoy the outdoor scenery.
