   Fall is in the air! With autumn just around the corner, lots of people are looking for fun activities to do with their friends. No need to fret! This blog will provide you with some of the most fun and exciting fall festivities. 

   One of the most wide known things to do in fall (and rightfully so) is pumpkin picking. Put on your fall clothes, go to a pumpkin patch and each pick out the perfect pumpkin. You and your friends can have a pumpkin carving/painting competition. Get creative with it! Add glitter, googly eyes and/or glow-in-the-dark paint. With these pumpkins, your creativity can go wild!

  An often overlooked activity is to roast pumpkin seeds. Take fresh pumpkin seeds, lay them out on a cookie sheet, brush on 2 tsp melted butter, sprinkle on cinnamon and sugar and roast at 300 degrees for 45 minutes.

   This fall, when you’re too cozy to go out, stay in with a spooky movie marathon. Get your fluffy socks, put on your blanket and get some Halloween candy to ensure the perfect movie night. You could watch movies from Nightmare Before Christmas, to The Sixth Sense!

   Festive fall activities to get you out and about include going to a corn maze and trying to find your way out. Lots of people tend to forget about corn mazes, but they will provide you and your friends with memories that you will hold onto forever. Try to time yourself! See how long it takes you to find your way out. Did you beat your personal score?

   If you are an outdoor person, you can go on a scenic bike ride. Go somewhere with colorful leaves or crisp air and enjoy the scenery. You can even bring a picnic! Stroll down streets that are decorated head to toe in fall gear and get in the fall spirit.

   Do a fall photoshoot! Dress in festive fall gear and go out on the town or dress as your favorite character and take photos together. Just have fun!

    Make smores, pumpkin bread, apple cinnamon rolls, etc. While you’re eating, enjoy a fun fall craft! Press paint onto leaves, and then place the leaves onto a pumpkin and tap them. Once they’re painted on, remove the leaves and you have a leaf-pressed pumpkin! It’s perfect for your porch, room, mantle, and even perfect for a table centerpiece!

   I hope you found something that you would like to do with your friends! Have a great fall!
