Did the title of this blog leave you to stay? Every parent struggles to come up with entertaining things to do that are also beneficial for the overall health of their family. Fall is a great time to experiment with different activities that bring both fun and fitness to the table. From pumpkin patches to corn mazes, Your Family Medical, your trusted general practitioner in Bedford, TX, (with clinic locations also in Lewisville & Benbrook TX) has come up with some great options for every member of the family to enjoy.
What screams the arrival of autumn more than your local pumpkin patch? You probably can’t answer that because it doesn’t exist! Pumpkin patches are an excellent place for your children to walk around and get their steps in without them realizing it. Help them pick out their favorite pumpkin to bring home to paint or carve (extra points for displaying their artwork around the house). Plus, the photo opportunities you have at a pumpkin patch are endless. This fall activity is one you never want to miss!
Most likely to be looped in with the pumpkin patch, you can never go wrong with a classic corn maze. Kids love to run around and get lost in the maze. Yes, we know it sounds like a parent’s worst nightmare, but this can be your chance to get those steps in too! Make it a family challenge to see who can get through the maze the fastest. You can even up the stakes and provide a reward for who wins.
Plan a Park Day
Finally, temperatures have started to drop and we aren’t experiencing this insane Texas heat anymore. We can now experience going on an enjoyable walk— keyword *enjoyable*.
With the change in season comes the change in colors, leaves are starting to shift from green to orange and it’s hard to keep our eyes off the trees. Try taking your family on a walk at your local park to see the fall foliage up close. Hit up the playground, bring a picnic lunch and take advantage of the nice weather.
Healthy Fall Meals
One of the best parts about fall has to be all the tasty treats that come along with it. In this day and age, it’s easy to find healthy alternatives to almost anything. Pick a day to spend in the kitchen with your family and whip up some delicious meals or desserts that you won’t feel bad about:
