15 Family-Friendly Fall Activities

At Lee, we love fall. Wait, I’m not sure I communicated that correctly. We really LOVE fall. It’s our favorite.

We love the changing colors, the dropping temperatures, photo ops and cuddle ops. We love the food, the spices and the overall energy of gratitude and love.

We love celebrating the season, so we wanted to share some of the ways we celebrate with you. Here’s a nice, long list of activities to keep the whole family busy all season.

BONUS: Download a PDF checklist of these activities to keep on your fridge as a reference.

pumpkin spice

1. Drink a pumpkin spice latte. It’s best done while cuddling.

2. Go to the pumpkin patch. Pick out your favorite pumpkins, take a hayride and wind your way through a corn maze, while you’re at it!

pumpkin carving

3. Carve pumpkins. Grab a pumpkin carving kit at your local Halloween store and make some clever faces!

4. Rake leaves. And proceed to jump in the piles.

5. Go to an apple orchard. Bring fresh apples home for pie, candy apples or just plain munching.


6. Play a game of touch football. Take the kids outside and get active!

7. Bake a pumpkin pie. Because who doesn’t love pumpkin pie?


8. Make your Halloween costumes and treats. Not feeling crafty enough to sew a costume? Buy one at the store and bake some pre-made Halloween cookies.

9. Build a bonfire. Cue cuddling and s’mores.


10. Wear your favorite jeans. With some boots and a sweater. Be comfortable. Then, find more of your favorites here.

11. Go to a haunted house. Find a kid-friendly one that stages spooky events or leave the kids at home for this one and get really scared.

12. Watch a scary movie. Ditto — Find one for everyone or wait until the kids go to sleep.


13. Make a big batch of chili. Bonus points if it’s made with winter squash!

14. Learn to knit. And save some cash by making yourself a scarf — It’s a win win!


15. Get a head start on your holiday shopping. You won’t regret it.

    I just bought a pair of “natural fit pull-on barely boots” in a petite. The pockets (4) are all sewn shut. Should I take out the stitches and open them????

  • Finding The Right Fit For Men

    There’s no question that each of us have our own ideas on how our jeans should fit. Whether it’s our own unique bodies or our ever-evolving sense of style, it gets harder and harder to find a fit or style that isn’t loved by one and hated by another. Everywhere you look there are different fits — from relaxed to bootcut to straight to slim to skinny, jeans are designed to look this way and feel that way. So why worry so much about what every else tells you to wear?
