Things To Do In Autumn + Free Autumn Bucket List Printable!

Autumn family activity ideas - my list of 20 activities to try this Autumn to make it more fun and memorable. More inspiration at

I think Autumn’s my favourite season. Is it yours?

There’s something about everything cooling down a bit, the beautiful, rich colours of falling leaves, and the comfort and warmth of a cosy evening in with a hot chocolate. The last one sort of goes out the window with two young kids at home, but it’s quickly becoming replaced by a cuddle with a big blanket and a family movie so I don’t mind.

To celebrate the arrival of the new season, I thought I’d share some ideas and inspiration for things to do as a family this Autumn. Hope you enjoy these Autumn family activity ideas :)
