10 Indoor Fall Activities for Kids and Adults


Fall offers so many fun things to do outside, but sometimes the weather might not be right for corn mazes or apple picking. Luckily, we have a few suggestions for indoor activities that both kids and adults can enjoy. Challenge yourself to try all 10 activities this season!

Play Games

Kids’ games can be fun for both children and adults. Get out a classic board game or play some cards with your friends.

Carve Pumpkins

Carving pumpkins is one of the most classic things you can do for indoor fun in the autumn. If you don’t want to deal with all the pumpkin guts, try some pumpkin carving ideas that don’t involve a knife or don’t make as much mess.

Make Fall Crafts

Fall is the perfect time for crafts. You can decorate gourds, make leaf crafts, create a scarecrow, fashion fall wreaths, and any number of other ideas to decorate your home and spend some time feeling creative.


Grab a blanket, a comfortable spot on the couch or in your favorite chair, and fill up a mug with your favorite drink for some cozy reading time. It’s the perfect time to revisit your favorite spooky stories!

Bake Autumn Treats

It’s not as hot outside, which means it’ll be a lot more comfortable to turn on the oven. Whip up a batch of cinnamon rolls, some delicious pumpkin pie, or an apple crisp. If you want to get your artistic side going, making sugar cookies or cupcakes that you can decorate. Plus, your home will smell more like fall.

Watch Movies

Whether you want to pull out your favorite horror or Halloween films or not, fall gives you the opportunity to curl up under a blanket, dim the lights, pop some popcorn, and enjoy a movie.

Organize the House

Maybe it’s not as fun as indoor games, but some people love the sense of accomplishment that good organization gives. Autumn is the perfect time to cycle through your wardrobe, organize your garage, or go through your kitchen to weed out belongings you no longer need.

Draw or Color

If you need to relax, some drawing or coloring is the perfect activity. You can get an intricate coloring book or something more simple if you like to color. Drawing can free your creative side even if you don’t consider yourself an expert artist.

Drink Fall Beverages

Is there anything more fall than a pumpkin spice latte or delicious apple cider? The best part about this one is that you can enjoy it while you’re doing your other indoor fun.

Throw a Party

If you want to do most of these indoor activities at once, why not throw a festive party? You can play indoor games, carve pumpkins, put on some of your favorite music, and have a great time with your friends and family.
