Fall is a great time of year. The leaves are changing colors,? people are celebrating Halloween and then Thanksgiving. But living in the Midwest means that the days are getting colder, so check out these indoor fall activities that you can do with your family. I’ve partnered with Pine Mountain for this post, though all opinions are my own.
There is nothing quite like a cozy fire to keep you warm when the temperatures drop in fall. My family enjoys spending time in our spacious family room, getting cozy by the fireplace when that fall chill hits the air. We’ll play games, cuddle on blankets and watch movies. Sometimes we even do a big family game night or have a movie marathon. I treasure these moments because I know that they won’t last long, now that the boys are growing up!
We’ve been using Pine Mountain firelogs to keep us warm and cozy for a few years now and this fall, we’re really enjoying the Pine Mountain? Java-Log? 4-Hour Firelogs, which were named invention of the year by TIME?in 2003. It’s actually made from recycled coffee grounds and burns up to 4 hours, a perfect amount of time for our family night in! It leaves a wonderful aroma in the year, while also burning cleaner than ordinary cordwood.
Another favorite when we want that wonderful pine scent are the American Home? by Yankee Candle? Balsam Fir Firelogs. These are crafted from real hardwoods, burning for 3 hours, and are fast and easy to light with no mess.
I’ve got a list of indoor fall activities that you can enjoy with your family, while creating a warm and inviting atmosphere with a cozy fire using Pine Mountain firelogs. These are perfect fall activities for school age and younger children to enjoy with the family.
Spending time together with indoor fall activities
- Family game night. Set a few games out and play age appropriate games for a few hours. Some of our favorites are Sorry, Jenga and Mancala.
- Family movie night. Agree on one or two classics, or perhaps a new movie to watch and enjoy together.
- Do a craft project. Crafting is always fun! Find a fun project that you’d like to do together.
- Bake some cookies. Everyone loves cookies and you can choose to make your favorite recipe, or just grab those easy packages from the store so that you can just drop the dough on a pan, stick it in the oven and wait for your delicious cookies to be done.
- Tell stories. Who says you need an actual campfire outside to tell stories around the fire? Your home’s fireplace will certainly do!
- Cuddle on a blanket. Grab a stack of your softest blankets and cuddle in front of the fire!
I hope that these ideas for family time inspired you today. If you plan a fall night in with the family, I’d love to hear all about it!
