Fall Family Favorites

Sharing is caring!

The leaves are turning vibrant shades of gold and the air is starting to take on a crisp edge. Fall is here. While I’m not one who pines away waiting for fall to come, I can appreciate it when it’s here. One of the things I love most about fall is that it forces my family together to spend time in each other’s company.

I’d love to share a few fall family favorites that not only bring us closer together but also add an extra layer of magic to this special time of year.

Outdoor Adventure Blanket

Our family loves being outdoors in the fall. The fall leaves are beautiful, and the weather is typically nice enough to want to spend many hours outdoors. One of the ways we do this is by having the right supplies. Equipped with plenty of food or snacks, an insulated thermos, and at least one cozy blanket, we embark on family adventures. This blanket is also perfect for those chilly football games we like to watch!

Cozy Family Reading

Reading together is a big part of our family time. But reading together as it becomes fall is even better. We switch on the fireplace. Load up with books about autumn, and pull out our favorite blankets. Snuggling together with a hot cup of cocoa and getting lost in a good story is a simple way to spend quality time. It encourages a love for reading and togetherness.
