Seven Great Autumn Activities

1. Go to a local pumpkin patch. Whether it’s with your friends or your family, going to a pumpkin patch is a classic fall activity. You and your loved ones can have a pumpkin-carving contest! Remember to share photos of your finished jack-o-lanterns with your family across the country. Alternatively, you can make some old fashioned pumpkin pies!

2. Draft and complete your fantasy football team. Now hear me out—are professional league NFL Superbowl tickets too expensive? Create your own team instead. You and your friends can tailgate or bar hop to your hearts content, all while cheering on the home team.

3. Catch a few falling leaves. Take a neighborhood walk and enjoy the changing colors of the leaves. When the trees are shedding their leaves, the ground and trees are full of bright oranges, yellows and reds. Don't forget to clip the PAX medical alert to your vest pocket! 


4. Keep warm and cozy indoors. When it’s chilly out, stay indoors and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate by the fire. Cuddle up with a warm blanket and put on your favorite movie. Don’t forget the marshmallows!

5. Make the yard looking fresh. Throw down some new seed for your front lawn. Get ready for next spring and plant some bulbs. Be sure to add a protective layer of soil so they stay safe from frost. In a few months you will have beautiful flowers to look at.

6. Create fall DIY projects. Craft some new fall décor. Decorate your tabletop with seasonal pumpkins and gourds. Collect leaves and twigs to make a seasonal wreath to hang on your door or place on your table. Stop by your local craft store to pick up all the supplies you need.

7. Show your appreciation. Show the important people in your life how much you appreciate them. Volunteer to make Thanksgiving dinner for those in need or host a special “friendsgiving” dinner. Turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy…we hope you saved room for seconds!


Turn Over a New Leaf

With all these great fall activities, you’ll be staying busy until the first snow hits the ground. With your medical alert around your neck (or clipped to your belt loop.. we’ve got options), you’ll be frolicking in theleaves in no time.
