Fallin' Over Fall

The fall season is easily one of our favorite seasons here at Monkey Mat. Not only does the Texas weather get cooler but we're just that much closer to Halloween, Thanksgiving and of course Christmas! Here is a list of our favorite Fall activities that can be done with friends, family, or little ones!

  • Corn Mazes: As a kid and adult, I've always loved corn mazes. My family used to pack a lunch and head to the same corn maze every year. Picnics and getting lost in 10-feet tall corn stalks was what my siblings and I looked forward to every fall. ;)
  • Halloween Movies: A super easy and fun evening for all ages. The adults can drink spiked cider and watch scary movies while the kids can watch Hocus Pocus (let's be honest, that movie is on my list though). 
  • Pumpkin Carving: This is a given for fall. Whether you enjoy carving intricate haunted houses or letting the little ones color on the pumpkins, this is the perfect fall activity for everyone. But don't forget to save the seeds to bake for a tasty snack. Pro tip: Spread out your Monkey Mat underneath the pumpkins for easy cleanup. Goes right in the wash!
  • Tailgating: If you're a football fan or not, tailgating is a great way to get the kids out of the house to have some fun on a Saturday. College or professional football, tailgates get fans together for grilling, hanging out and having fun. Even if you don't live in a city with a football team, see if there's a minor league baseball team or soccer team you can get inexpensive tickets to!

Thanks for reading, everyone! As always, please send your favorite fall activities. :)
