Pick Your Own Apples
Get your kids excited about fruit by taking them apple picking. Continue the fun by making an apple pie together.
Grab the kids and try navigating your way through a corn maze. Use your directional skills to make it to the finish line. A bonus: You’ll also be giving back to the agricultural industry. Find a maze near you.
Go On a Hay Ride
Hop on a hay ride and view one-of-a-kind scenery. Looking for a good scare this Halloween? Try a haunted hay ride, like the one offered at The Bates Motel in Glen Mills, Pennsylvania.
Bob For Apples
Pay tribute to a traditional Halloween game by sinking your teeth into a ripe apple. Simply fill a large basin with water and floating apples. This game has been entertaining players since Celtic times, when girls would play to see who would get married first.

Appreciate Fall Foliage
Go outside and witness the beautiful colors of fall as trees prepare for the winter. Enjoy the oranges, yellows and reds all year long by creating a leaf collage with your kids. Simply pick a variety of colors and shapes and craft your own.
