Who needs a cornfield when you can create a sprawling leaf maze for the kids right in your own backyard? Start in the middle of your space and gently rake the leaves into a tricky labyrinth. The whole family will have fun finding their way to the end where they’ll be rewarded with a jug of hot apple cider—as well as rakes and leaf bags for cleanup!

You’re never too old to leap into a heaping pile of leaves! Have some fun while you’re cleaning up by making the largest pile possible, then take turns jumping in. Cleanup may take a little longer, but you’ll have lots of fun beforehand!

Painted Pumpkins
Psst! It’s that spooky season again for painted pumpkins and pretty gourds. Instead of carving this year, try your hand at painting to show off your creativity and colorful fall spirit. You can paint a friendly face for every member of your family, or go all out for Halloween with witches, warlocks, and werewolves—oh my! Stack them by your door or walkway for an extra festive greeting. Maybe even write a message by painting one letter on each pumpkin and line them up on the way to your house. Boo!

Feed the Birds!
Don’t forget your feathered friends this fall. Collect pinecones to make peanut-butter-and-birdseed feeders and brush up on your backyard ornithology! First, go on a treasure hunt for the perfect pinecones. Then assemble all your ingredients—you’ll need string, peanut butter, birdseed, spatulas (or something similar for spreading), and a tray for rolling the pinecones in. Tie on a long piece of string,  then spread the peanut butter on the pinecone and roll it in birdseed. Try to hang it in a place that’s visible from the house and let nature do the rest!
