  1. These are all thing that I simply love about fall! We’ll be carving our pumpkins while sipping hot cocoa this weekend. I’d love to make a scarecrow too, if time permits.

  2. So many great ideas! My son would love all of these. We have never bobbed for apples. That would be a great idea for an afternoon with friends! We will have to give a few of these a try!

  3. Wow so many great ideas here! Roasting marshmallows on an open campfire has to be one of my favourite outdoorsy things to do. And my 6yo has been asking to try apple bobbing after seeing it on TV last week so we might need to give this a try!

    And congratulations because someone loved this post so much, they added it to the BlogCrush linky! Feel free to collect your “I’ve been featured” blog badge šŸ™‚ #blogcrush
