21 Cheap or Free Things to Do This Fall!

Autumn. The time of year when it finally gets cozy again, soul food is served every day and, ideally, the fireplace is heated. And there's so much more to do than just watch the leaves turn brown. We have put together activities and things for you that you can do in autumn, that are cheap or free and that also allow you to keep your distance. Sounds like a plan, doesn't it? Let's go!

21 things to do (with kids) this fall now

1. Visit a pumpkin patch

The huge "pumpkin patches" that every Halloween episode of our favorite US series does? There are now also in Austria! For example at the Franzlbauer in Hintersdorf in Lower Austria. There is a pumpkin show, Halloween carving, pumpkin drinks, haystack and pumpkin delicacies.

2. Carve pumpkins

You can then decorate, carve and set up the pumpkin you have got hold of. You can find thousands of ideas on Pinterest. We think pastel-colored pumpkins with funny sayings are pretty great!

3. Harvest apples yourself

Apple tree fields are also a great destination and harvesting can be combined with a nice autumn walk!

4. Bake bake cakes

Apples, pumpkins, chestnuts - everything that autumn has to offer can also be transformed into wonderful cakes, pies and pies - and makes the apartment smell!

5. Fall hiking and camping

Wrap yourself up in an onion look and enjoy the fresh autumn air. The hard-core can even go camping on nice weekends. As the saying goes: there is no such thing as bad weather, only bad equipment!

6. DIY decoration for autumn and Halloween

Pumpkin carving is already on the list, but there is so much more that can be easily tinkered and decorated. Dries beautiful autumn leaves, makes garlands out of fir tops or dried oranges or makes a beautiful autumn wreath. There are no limits to your imagination - it gets easier if you consult Pinterest.

7. Watch your favorite Halloween shows

There are many series that have Halloween specials, horror flicks, and Halloween satire. So throw yourself in front of the TV with popcorn and a Schilcher storm!

8. Make a Pumpkin Spice Latte

Sin expensive Pumpkin Spice Latte? Turn it into an event and prepare it yourself. You can find the recipe here!

9. Look at leaves - and take photos of them

The beautiful colorful autumn leaves with which you can decorate your apartment? You can also just marvel at them in nature and work on your photo skills!

10. Toast pumpkin seeds

We have already collected, carved or made cakes for the pumpkin. The pumpkin seeds shouldn't just end up in the trash either. You can process it into a healthy snack and roast it in the oven!

11. Collect beautiful leaves

12. Flea markets

As long as the weather allows it, flea markets are the perfect outdoor activity! Take tea with you in the thermos flask and walk from stand to stand!

13. Mulled wine

Just like with the Pumpkin Spice Latte, you can also enjoy the mulled wine at home. Anyone who has a balcony or garden has it even better. Invite your dearest friends and open your own little mulled wine stand!

14. Apple and cinnamon muffins - heard right

HERE the brilliant recipe!

15. Plant pumpkins for spring

OK. Now there really is only one thing left to do with the pumpkin. Don't toast * all * of the seeds, but keep a few to plant. Then there will be pumpkins from our own harvest next autumn!

16. Learns to crochet, embroider or knit

So beautifully meditative and then also useful. Or who doesn't love them as they get older, the cozy, self-knitted socks?

17. Soup swap

We try to briefly explain our ultimate "The Perfect Dinner 'Social Distancing Version" "idea: Grab a few friends, each of you cooks your favorite soup, takes bowls, spoons and soup in the thermos to the park and organizes "Soup Swap Tasting Autumn Picnic". Sounds pretty good, doesn't it?

18. Pick mushrooms

Now in autumn the mushrooms will give it another go! In autumn, mushroom fans also collect chestnuts, autumn trumpets, cranberries and, of course, porcini mushrooms and chanterelles. Get yourself a mushroom book, basket and knife and off to the forest with you!

19. Rain hike

How was it again with "not bad weather, just bad equipment"? That's correct. Even if it doesn't want to stop raining on the weekend, you should get out into the fresh air. With the right rainwear and good rubber boots, it's actually quite fun! And the hot bathtub afterwards is all the more deserved!

20. Make (and eat) chestnut animals

Chestnut animals! To do this, too, we first have to get some fresh air. There are hot chestnuts for handicrafts and the adults can also make more minimalist chestnut wreaths from the brown balls!

21st Beauty Day

Last but not least: treat yourself to a DIY beauty day with your best friend. Manicure, pedicure, face mask, bathtub and then relax on the couch. Autumn heart, what more do you want?
