Fun Fall Activities for the whole family!
The start of fall heralds the beginning of the holiday season. With Halloween right around the corner why not set aside time for a few quick and easy holiday activities to bring friends and family together.
As the days get shorter make sure to take advantage of every bit of extra daylight that you can! Get outside and plan a day at a park or beach with the family. Picnics are a great way to stick to a budget and have a fun filled day outside!
Need some help coming up with fun fall and Halloween themed snacks? Look no further! Here are three of our personal favorites to get the party started!
Make your own Autumn Snack Mix
Why not make a snack mix you will not just enjoy, but actually eat! No ingredients to pick out or eat around, just delicious.
We recommend mixing a handful of each of these:
Peanuts (a classic nut, delicious salted or unsalted)
Reese’s pieces (Halloween colors? Check. Classic fan favorite flavor? Check!)
Candy Corn (a fall candy staple. You just can’t skip it!)
Pretzel pieces (a salty crunchy addition to the mix)
Chocolate or Butterscotch Chips (sweet, small, and totally snack worthy)
Add your favorite candies, nuts and flavors to make your personal favorite snack mix.
Mini Candy Apple Slices
Nothing says fall like fresh candied apples! These are a treat that everyone will love… and they are super easy to make!
Simply gather: wrapped caramel cubes, chocolate chips or chocolate coating wafers (color of your choice), and the toppings! We recommend something like shredded coconut, mini chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, peanut butter chips, or even chopped nuts.
Melt the caramels in a small bowl in the microwave (30 second intervals until you can mix it evenly). Do the same with the chocolate chips or coating wafers. Cut up your apples into this slices and stick them through with kabob skewers! Then you simply dip them in you the coating of your choice and sprinkle them with you toppings!
Lay them down on way paper to cool in in the fridge and enjoy!
Last but not Least… Monster Munch Popcorn Snack Mix!
This one is easy and oh so fun! You can make it as colorful or as simple as you like! Simply pop your popcorn and then let it cool until room temperature or slightly cooler.
Melt down some purple coating wafers and some orange coating wafers (keep them separate!)
Collect you favorite holiday candies like candy corn, orange black and purple chocolate gems, and candy pumpkins.
Mix your candy and popcorn in a large bowl (gently!) and then lay it out on a cookie sheet. Dribble over-top liberally with the melted colored coating wafers. Let it all cool, and then pack it up to enjoy later!
Make your fall festive and fun with these simple grab and go snacks. They are sure to be a hit!
