Fall Into Fun

“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall,” said F. Scott Fitzgerald and how can you not think they same thing when there are so many wonderful things to do in the fall?  Living in the middle of America it’s easy to think you have nothing to do.  Especially on a high school budget and schedule.  So, I’ve created a list of must-do things for this fall that are easy to attain as a high school student.

In no particular order:


1. Tailgate a football game

Whether you want to do this for Park Hill South or the Chiefs you can buy some pizza, hot chocolate, and chips and go hang out with your friends before a football game.  A good way to save is to split up the cost of food within your friends so only one person isn’t buying everything.  You don’t even have to be a football fan to enjoy just hanging out with your friends with some good music and food.

Approximate Total Cost: $30 for PHS Game, $60 for Chiefs Game


2. Drink a Pumpkin Spice Latte

This is something you can do any time of the day whenever you are feeling like you need a legitimate taste of fall.  You can get various types of Fall drinks at Caribou, Starbucks, or you can even make your own at home.


Approximate Total Cost: $4


3. Host a Bonfire

Have a group of friends come over to your house around sunset and tell stories and chat around a bonfire while eating and making smores!  Blankets necessary and hot chocolate necessary.


Approximate Total Cost: $15


4. Have a Scary Movie Marathon

Depending on how many scary movies you and your friends own this could potentially cost nothing!  This would be a good thing to do with a girlfriend or boyfriend, or if you don’t have one, your dog.


Approximate Total Cost: $0


5. Take a Foggy Morning Walk

Another thing you can do with your dog, walk in the morning fog!  This year especially it has been really foggy, which creates such a fally feel.  Just wake up, throw on a coat and get out in the fall air.


Approximate Total Cost: $0


6. Make Apple Cider

Not only will this make your whole house smell like fall, but it is also a fun thing to do with your whole family!  See attached recipe!

Approximate Total Cost: $15


7. Go to a Pumpkin Patch

At a Pumpkin Patch you can do all sorts of fall things; pick apples, play with kittens, eat honey, and of course, pick pumpkins! You can do this activity with almost anyone and that is what is so great about it.


Approximate Total Cost:$20


8. Community Service

With Thanksgiving in a big city coming up there are a lot of people in need.  You can go to Harvesters, or simply donate to the Mac and Cheese drive when it comes to Park Hill South.  Anything would help.  Click on the link below to see how you and your friends can make a difference.

Approximate Total Cost: $0-5


9. Carve a Pumpkin

Right before Halloween is a good time to create any kind of pumpkin you like.  Whether it’s spooky or sparkly you can create a pumpkin to decorate the outside of your house for Halloween.  Plus, you can use to seeds and bake pumpkin seeds!  Here are some great design ideas.

Approximate Total Cost: $10


10. Go to a Haunted House

Not a real one of course, but visit the haunted houses in the West Bottoms.  These are open awhile before Halloween and close right after Halloween.  Although they are a bit pricey, they are totally worth it.

Approximate Total Cost: $30
