Fun things to do in the fall

Fall is a wonderful season for participating in fun activities with your friends and family. Here is a list of fun things for kids to do during this beautiful time of the year:

GO APPLE PICKING I like Harbes Farms ( in Riverhead or Mattituck. It is a great place to spend time with your family while enjoying the sunshine.

BAKE AN APPLE PIE There are so many delicious recipes for apple pie available, simply find one and you will have a great afternoon project and a tasty treat.

HARVEST FESTIVALS ARE IN FULL SWING! When I go, there are usually games, food, sweets and hayrides.

ROAST SOME FRESH CORN Pick it up at a local farm or market, but don't take the outside off! Throw the corn on the grill for about 20 minutes, checking to make sure it is not burning. It comes out tasty, buttery and amazing!

COLLECT PINECONES AND MAKE BIRD FEEDERS To do this, simply go into your backyard and find the best pinecone you can. You can even make this into a competition for you and your siblings. You can use the pinecones to make bird feeders by putting peanut butter and bird seeds in them and leaving them out.

PICK OUT OR MAKE YOUR OWN HALLOWEEN COSTUME You can go to the store to find one, or be more original and make your own.
