Although the weather is still very Summer-like in Toronto I am well aware that Fall is right around the corner. I have been trying to spend more time outdoors and with the promise of slightly cooler weather, there is no time like the present to tackle one or all of these fall activities.

Top 5 Fall Activities

I am going to share some of my favourite activities to do in the Fall and the secrets that help keep me going (even if it’s a little chilly). I look forward to hearing what you love to do in the comments. 

Fall Walks

There’s nothing better than going for a long, fall walk to take in all the sensory experiences the season has to offer. From the smell of fresh air to the colourful changing leaves, you’re sure to make this a staple in your weekly routine. But with the change of season comes a change to our wardrobe. Switching from sandals to shoes and boots can be uncomfortable as our feet get used to different footwear. To help ease any discomfort, I wear my Dr. Scholl’s Comfort & Energy Massaging Gel Insoles, especially on longer walks to make sure I can comfortably keep moving without having to turn back early. These insoles are great for foot and leg fatigue, with gel waves that massage the most sensitive areas of my foot.

Visits to the Pumpkin Patch

In Canada, we are so blessed to have so many local farmers who open their land for us to visit and purchase goods. A lot even go the extra mile and do corn mazes, hay rides and even full-blown party venues. Grab your family and head to a local farm. You’ll not only be supporting your local farmers but it gives you THE BEST memories and photos. You can find a local pumpkin patch here.

Get Active!

If you’re looking for a little more activity, there are lots of options to keep you going during the fall. If you’re really adventurous, join a fall sports league, or get your family out to play a new sport like soccer or softball.  I know what you’re thinking, the aches and pains that come with physical activity can be a deterrent, especially if it affects your sleep. I keep Aleve Nighttime on my nightstand so I don’t have to worry. ALEVE Nighttime relieves my muscle aches and pains for up to 12 hours, plus it has a sleep aid to help me fall asleep and stay asleep.  

Seasonal Crafts:

I love letting my artistic side come out and creating DIY things for the house or crafts with my kids, using bits of nature I find during the fall months (and on my fall walks). It’s amazing how creative we can get using colourful leaves, birch bark, or flowers. One of my favourite crafts to make is a fall frame using sticks, and gluing leaves, stones and dried flowers to the frame. Bonus points if you use it to frame a picture taken on one of your walks!

Photo Shoot

Fall is one of the prettiest seasons with the trees changing colours and autumnal flowers and plants. Grab your family and head out to your local parks or green space to take some photos. If you don’t want to grab a photographer you can buy tons of inexpensive tripods for your phone or camera on Amazon.ca. I even invested in an inexpensive remote ($6) for my DSLR so I can actually be in the pictures instead of taking them. You can even use these photos for your holiday card.

Our family is always looking for new fall activities to do together, what are your favourite things to do during the fall season?

    My daughter loves taking pictures so much that we bought her a good DSLR for Christmas last year, this is such a great idea – I’m going to suggest we go to one of the parks this weekend! Thank you!
