Hello Fall! Yes, Halloween is over but it's not too late to check off some amazing fall activities from your Fall Fun Bucket List! November is here and there's still lots to do to keep the kiddos busy and having fun! I'm going to share some of our favorite things to do at home and around Houston.
Go to a Pumpkin Patch
There are still lots of pumpkin patches open after Halloween! Although, you may be done carving pumpkins, most pumpkin patches have other activities such as games, great photo ops, and our favorite, a corn maze. My boys love getting lost and running crazy in a corn maze, jumping in hay, and getting fresh air during this beautiful weather. Here's a few that are still open in the Houston area: Dewberry Farms (Open through November 15th), Blessington Farm (Open through November 21st), Old McDonald's Farm (Open through November 30th).
Hot Chocolate with a Twist
If you've been on any mom page on Facebook or Instagram, then you know this year is taking on a new hot chocolate craze: Hot Chocolate Bombs! Honestly, I was more excited to try it then the kids! Choose a chilly fall night, grab a hot chocolate bomb and enjoy watching the oo's and ah's as the marshmallows magically appear! They come in fun flavors so why not try them all. Or if you have a little time on your hands, and some creative skills, try making them together with the kids. There are so many tutorials on youtube and it's actually easier than you think! Yum!
Pumpkin carving doesn't have to stop because Halloween has passed, trust me, the kids would love to see carved pumpkins throughout the fall season! You can create Turkey pumpkins with feathers and craft materials, or create your favorite book characters! There's so many ways to create fun pumpkins without doing the traditional halloween pumpkin.
