Family Friendly Fall Activities

Finding family friendly fall activities is on everyone’s mind as the seasons change. The fall air is crisper. The leaves begin to change color and apple cider appears in the produce section of the commissary. With many holidays and long weekends in the fall, we want to make the most of our family time together. Halloween is often too scary for younger children. Even toned down ghosts and witches can be the stuff of nightmares for little ones. Perhaps your family feels personal convictions about celebrating Halloween at all.
