I promise you I'm not wishing away summer, in fact I'm someone that likes to hold onto summer as long as possible, but since the PSL is now available at Starbucks and you've already started the countdown to boots and scarves season I figured why not just go with it. If anything you'll be glad I posted this so you can start laying out your plan for the fall season. Autumn in Wisconsin is pretty hard to beat! MSN.com shared an article from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that covers 50 things to do with your kids this fall during the pandemic in Wisconsin. Below are some of my favorite ideas and the rest can be found here.
- Even though harvest festivals are cancelled you can still do many of the activities in your own back yard like scarecrow making, pumpkin bowling, bobbing for apples, relay races and more!
- Take a drive to see the all the changing fall colors.
- Go on a socially distanced haunted hike. You can make up your own scary stories.
- If you're comfortable with it visit places like the Milwaukee County Zoo or Milwaukee Public Museum. They're open and taking all the necessary precautions.
- Go camping, have a fire and make s'mores.
- This is the year to DIY that Halloween costume!
- Family board game marathon. If you do this please invite me!!
- Enjoy the Day of the Dead celebration put on by the Art Museum. This year it will be virtual on Sunday, October 18 starting at 10am.
- Play games outside you used to play as a kid like red light, green light and ghost in the graveyard.
- Create a DIY apple cider or pumpkin spice drink.
