Are you looking for Fall Outdoor Activities? Well look no further!
Fall is my absolute favorite season. I love the changing colors and the crisp cool air. Plus, my youngest was born in October and will be turning 2 this month, but that is a post for another day.

If you read my post on 20 Outdoor Activities for Toddlers, you know my boys love the outdoors and would spend the whole day outside if I would let them. So, here is a list of Fall Outdoor Activities.
Fall Outdoor Activities
1. Go Pick Pumpkins
Who doesn’t love visiting a Pumpkin Patch? Throw on a flannel and go pick a pumpkin. Most Pumpkin Patches have a hayride and other activities to enjoy while you are there. Plus, you are supporting a local farm or business who has put in a good deal of time and effort into growing those pumpkins.
After a wonderful outdoor outing, you can use those pumpkins that you picked as fall decor for your front porch.
2. Collect Colorful Leaves
Fall is the season that embraces change. The change in the temperature and the changing of leaves. A great fall activity is collecting leaves of different colors.
Instead of just raking them up and throwing them away. Take some time to appreciate the beauty of nature and all the gorgeous fall colors.
3. Go for a Hike
Hiking is an activity that can be done all year round. But fall brings a whole new perspective to the usual hiking trail you are used to. The gorgeous red and orange colors of the changing leaves can make your mundane hiking trail into a pretty work of art.
4. Have A bonfire
A good evening fire is a great way to relax and enjoy the crisp temperatures of fall. Cuddle up under a blanket and brew a cup of tea, and enjoy family time together.
Also, if you add #8 of this list to the bonfire it makes for a delicious treat.
5. Plant Mums
Mums are the flowers of fall. They come in multiple colors and can add to your outdoor fall decor. Whether you buy them to replant or keep them in the planter they come in, they add even more color for fall.
6. Look for Acorns, Pinecones or Walnuts
This activity is similar to collecting leaves. Again with the trees changing for cooler weather, they drop their acorns, pinecones, and walnuts. Go for a walk and collect them as you go. They also make great additions to your fall decor.
7. Go to a Corn Maze
A corn maze is fun (and scary) at the same time. The possibility of finding your way or getting lost in the maze is a great experience for the family. Working together to find the way out.
8. Make S’mores
Of course you can make s’mores inside but it is not near as fun as roasting marshmallows over a fire. Plus you can’t beat eating the s’more outside in the crisp fall air with sticky fingers.
9. Go to an Apple Orchard
If you are lucky enough to live near an apple orchard, this is a great fall activity for the family. Pick some apples, make some applesauce or cider. Even if you aren’t a fan of apples it is still a fun activity to spend time outdoors.
10. Outdoor Movie
Outdoor movies are usually a summer activity. But what most people do not know is that most drive ins don’t stop showing movies until November. Which gives you most of the fall season to continue enjoying movies.
There are also neat little projectors that you can enjoy an outdoor movie at home. You just need a sheet and some goodies to eat.
Fall is such a gorgeous season and spending it outdoors as a family is a great way to experience the colors and make some great memories.

What fun ideas! We should make s’mores. I wish Texas had more colored leaves to see!
Oh I couldn’t imagine less colored leaves. That’s the best part about fall!
These are amazing ideas! I like the outdoor movie and the bonfire. Plus I do want to camp out someday.
A camp out with an outdoor movie and fire would be a perfect fall activity! Such a great idea.
oh wow, these are all amazing ideas! I love Fall season for all the amazing outdoor activities that you can do…Beautiful season.
It is a gorgeous season. I love that the weather is getting cooler and all the colors.
I loved this list! Fall is my favorite season too 🙂 I personally love hiking and searching for pinecones. I still need to experience the corn maze. Great ideas!
Thank you! My oldest has become fond of looking for acorns and throwing them like baseballs lol. Corn Mazes are so fun, hope you can experience it soon!
An outdoor movie! What a great idea!! (PS Love the pictures that accompanied each idea)
Thank you so much!
I love all of these activities. I especially like bonfires. We have a firepit that we like to light up at home and sometimes we pretend we’re camping!
Oh how fun. Camping is another great fall activity.
Fall is my favorite time of year as well! I never thought to take the littles out to gather acorns pine ones, or nuts. I’m sure my son will love this as well as collecting the different colored leaves.
Something so simple but they have a wonderful time while doing it!
Loving all of these ideas! We are going to a Pumpkin Patch in a few weeks and it is always one of my favorite fall things to do
We are actually going to the Pumpkin Patch tomorrow and the boys are so excited. I hope you have a wonderful time.
I love fall and these ideas are truly amazing! I think I should try some…..
I hope you enjoy your fall season!
I have always loved the pumpkin patch! It just brings me so much joy. Bonfires are also awesome. There’s just nothing like being curled up next to a fire with a nice beverage!
I completely agree. It’s a great way to spend a cool fall night.
I love fall too! I’ve been thinking of doing a leaf craft with my son so we can look at the colors even longer 🙂
Oh that’s a great idea. Such a good activity to work on colors.
This is a great list, and such beautiful pictures! I love walking through the woods in the Fall and seeing all the leaves. A bonfire sounds like a blast too!
Oh thank you! The leaves are my favorite too all those pretty colors.
Love these ideas!! We had a bonfire last night, and it just felt like a fall celebration!
That sounds like a great time!
Such great ideas in this post! I love this….I personally would love the outside smores idea and watching a movie from my backyard would be amazing. My daughter loves picking up pinecones on our neighborhood walks!
Thank you! I love any activity that brings families together. Walks are always like a treasure hunt and seeing what you can find along the way.
Hike and bonfire is so much fun! We have very good hiking trails so whenever my daughters visit me with their families, we go hiking.
Aww that is an awesome bonding experience. Love hiking trips!
