Six Ideas for Family Fun in New Hampshire this Fall: Busy Student Edition
Fall is in the air, and it’s the perfect time to pick your own apples and pumpkins. Enjoy warm, freshly made apple cider donuts and a hay ride.
Advantage for students: With the dozens of orchards and farms in New Hampshire, there’s like one close to you so you can be home in time to post to Moodle when taking online classes.
Explore Apple RecipesApples are a healthy addition to any lunch box but you don’t need to stop there. Use your pickings to create another activity for the kitchen. If you’re no Betty Crocker – no worries. Try the Lazy Apple Pie recipe from Stay Work Play NewHamphire’s blog.
Advantage for students: You’ll get even more mileage and memories out of your “pickings,” and potentially something yummy to eat and talk about around the dinner table.
Cheer on your children as they race up, over, and through obstacles. Make a day of being outdoors and active.
Advantage for students: Your kids will LOVE being the center of your attention during the event. If you’re not sure when’s the next time you’ll be able to put another fun weekend on the calendar, an Extreme Field Day is a great choice since it's a high level of quality time that’s all about your kids.
Take a Hike!
The bold colors of autumn are here; get out there and enjoy them! Check out the New Hampshire State Parks for walking trails, or just walk right out your back door and into the woods to explore. Like mazes? Try navigating through a local corn maze!
Advantage for students: Trails are all around you. Whether it’s in your town or just beyond the border, you’ll be able to find a hike that’s close to home to fit both fall fun and fall coursework.
Leaf-peeping has a touristy reputation to those of us in the Granite State, but don’t knock it until you try it! New Hampshire has a wide variety of scenic drives that will take it to an entirely different level. The views you'll see are literally fit for a scenic New England calendar—what could be better than seeing it in person. For something more unique, check out one of the many scenic train rides offered in New Hampshire.
Advantage for students: The time spent riding around as a family is uninterrupted time together. Limit the screen time in your car, turn up the music your family loves, and for however long or short you have on your calendar, enjoy your time together.
