What’s more fun than spending time with your family?? Spending that time completing fun Fall Family Challenge activities!
See how many of these ten activities you can do with your family and count up your points! You have the opportunity to earn a total of 44 points!
Two points each…
Watch a Halloween Movie Together
Halloweentown is one of my family’s favorite Halloween, though Hocus Pocus is probably a bit more popular! However, any Halloween movie will do!!
Bob for Apples
Need we say more?!?!? Bobbing for apples is a fun and easy activity to do with kids of any ages. I even threw vampire teeth in with the apples so the kids could pick between teeth or an apple (or both)!!
Three points each…
Bake or make something pumpkin-flavored
We love pumpkin muffins for breakfast and snacks at our house!!
Make fall decorations with your family
I have always done crafts and activities for every holiday with my own children and now I get to share the fun with my grandchildren too!! The kiddos were painting their own pumpkins instead of carving by themselves! Whew!
Check out this post for more fun family activities with YOUR family!
Four points each…
Look at pictures of Halloweens past and recall the good memories you had together as a family
I love pictures and photo albums and the memories Facebook offers us on a daily basis. I love reminiscing about the fun we had together in the past and planning new activities to do in the future!
Go through a corn maze as a family
We live in Southern Indiana and LOVE going to Holiday World for our summer and fall fun!! This picture if from the corn maze they have at the theme park during their Happy Halloweekends in September and October each year!
Five points each…
In the process of carving the pumpkins…..
The finished Jack-o-Lanterns!
Roast your pumpkin seeds after you carve your pumpkins
Eight points each…
Our family and my previous Girl Scout Troop (previous because my girls are in college now) have always enjoyed collecting items for local agencies that are in need.
One of the agencies we have collected food, collected clothes, and worked in their clothing banks is the Evansville Christian Life Center. They have many services to offer people in need, including their food and clothing bank. What charities do you have in your area??
Clean out your closet and donate items you do not use or do not want to a local clothing bank or homeless shelter
Purchase and/or collect canned goods for a local food bank’s Thanksgiving drive or daily food services that they offer to those in need.
Total up your points by November 30, 2021, and share your total in the comments section of this page!!
Remember…you can earn a total of 44 points by doing all of the ten challenges listed above!
