It won't be long before autumn will start again. A cozy season with falling leaves, cooler temperatures and cozy candlelight. Although we tend to spend more time indoors in the fall, there are also fun outings outside. And since we are fans of fun and discoveries, we have the following 10 fun autumn outings for you to fully enjoy this beautiful season.
1. Forest walk
This is always a good idea, especially in the fall with all those colorful leaves. Enjoy strolling through the leaves together and breathing in the fresh forest air. Don't forget to bring a bag to take home the treasures found along the way. For example, turn it into an attractive autumn table. Tip: Send a card to your walking date and invite him or her for a nice walk in the woods.
2. Visit to the library
Do you feel like taking a moment of rest after a walk in the woods or is the weather bad outside? Then a visit to the library is a relaxing tip. They have several reading corners where you can sit or read to your child. You can of course also take a number of books home with you for the necessary reading moments. Grab a warm blanket, light the candles and read a stack of books. Don't forget to pour yourself a good glass of wine or a hot chocolate with whipped cream.
3. Visit a pumpkin farm
