We love Fall. The changing colours of the leaves, the cooler weather, the London Fogs and the layered sweaters.

Fall in Canada is magnificent. We truly get a full fall experience.

So, we wanted to make a list to share our favourite fall experiences outside in nature. These are some fun things that truly let you get outside, enjoy nature and take in some fresh air before it gets really cold.

1. Rake Leaves (And Jump in Them)

This might seem like a chore, but it is actually a really fun way to get outside. But raking leaves and putting them straight into compost bags isn't much fun. Instead, make the biggest pile possible and jump in them.

2. Go To The Pumpkin Patch

Pumpkin and fall go together like two peas in a pod. So, head to your local pumpkin patch to grab a pumpkin. Then you can use it to make a jack-o-lantern (like our feature soap), roast the pumpkin seeds, make pumpkin pie and so much more - we’ve discovered this magical ingredient and made our very own pumpkin soap. Enjoy frolicking through the vines and choosing your very own mighty pumpkin. If the air is chilly, keep your dry skin patches protected and hydrated with some dry skin butter.

3. Run Through A Corn Maze

Corn mazes are so much fun! What better way to enjoy the cool crisp evening fall air than to get lost in a sea of corn?

4. Go Star Gazing

Fall brings longer nights and evenings, without the bitter sting of winter. Get away from the city lights and enjoy looking up at the stars.

5. Host A Bonfire

Bonfires, and fires, in general, are a great way to stay warm on fall evenings. Enjoy the evening and cozy up with good friends, hot chocolate and the roaring fire. Don't forget the marshmallows and smores.

6. Visit The Fair


Fall is a great time to visit the fair and so many places have amazing fall fairs where you can go on a hay bail ride, go bobbing for apples and eat candy corn to your heart's content. You can stroll through the fair and watch your kiddos play carnival games.

7. Go Apple Picking

Apples and fall, another ingredient that goes together so well. Whether you're craving apple crumble, apple pie or applesauce, why not pick your own apples? Apples are a great fruit that grows throughout Canada, so head to your local orchard to get your own.

8. Take Cute Family Photos

Family photos in fall might seem overdone, but you can't deny that the lighting and colours aren't amazing. So, grab your kids, your parents and all the rest to take some amazing fall photos.

9. Go On A Fall Hike

Fall is a great time for hiking and walking. Whether this is in your local river valley, or up into the mountains. Enjoy the changing trees and watch the leaves become their vibrant reds and oranges.

10. Pack A Picnic


Why not spend a little more time outside in the leaves. Pack a picnic blanket, some great fall foods, and head into the park. Watch the leaves fall around you.
