Grab a Wagon! 8 Fun Family Activities to Try This Fall

Autumn has arrived! From cozy sweater weather to the aromatic allure of pumpkin spice, we're excited for the arrival of brisk fall days. There are so many delightful fall-inspired activities that you can enjoy with your little ones! The key ingredient? A dependable wagon. They’re simply invaluable companions for your fall escapades. A robust wagon can add an element of fun to leisurely nature walks and provide a much-needed respite for tired toddlers. 

At ANB Baby, we offer a diverse range of wagons tailored to suit your family's lifestyle and enhance your cherished fall pastimes. So, grab your wagon, don your autumn jacket, gather your loved ones, and venture outdoors for some delightful autumnal adventures! Here are a few ways to embrace the beauty of fall with your trusty wagon.

1. Visit a Pumpkin Patch

While spending the whole day at a farm is great, it's not the only way to make picking a pumpkin special. Go for a stroll to your nearby pumpkin patch and let your kids check out all the different shapes and sizes. When their little feet get tired, load them and their pumpkins into your stroller wagon.

2. Go Apple-Picking

While you can get apples any time of the year, they're best in the fall. Take a stroll through the orchard with your kids, and use your wagon to carry the apples you collect. We love the Veer Cruiser, the world's first all-terrain crossover that blends the feel, functionality, and safety of modern premium strollers with the classic fun of a wagon. Its sturdy wheels make moving around even in rough fields a breeze.


3. Discover a Corn Maze 

Your little ones will enjoy the new experience, and with a great wagon in tow, you can have a good time navigating through the corn without the stress of anyone getting lost in the maze!

4. Go For a Nature Walk

Take a walk in nature to see the leaves changing colors. Whether you go to a nearby forest or just stroll around your neighborhood, it's beautiful to see nature displaying shades of orange, yellow, and red. While you're at it, collect leaves with your kids to create leaf rubbings when you return home. The Bob Gear Renegade™ Wagon is the perfect sidekick for these types of adventures. Made to get up and go, it folds and unfolds with one hand and three simple steps! The spacious design fits three kids and all the little extras that make family outings more fun. Large XtraMile™ tires are ready for any terrain and Smooth Shox™ suspension keeps riders comfortable from road to trail and everywhere in between.

5. Collect Pine Cones

Take the family outdoors and set a challenge for the kids to gather as many pine cones as they can find. Encourage them to also collect leaves, twigs, and bits of moss for added decoration. Once you've amassed your nature treasures, load them into your stroller wagon and return home. Unleash your creativity by using a hot glue gun to craft some charming fall decorations with the gathered items. It's a simple yet enjoyable way to turn a nature walk into a festive DIY project in which the whole family can participate.

6. Visit a Nearby Farmer's Market

Checking out the vegetable stands is a fantastic way to show your kids the different fruits and vegetables that are in season during the fall, like apples, persimmons, beets, figs, pears, pomegranates, and squash. And with a spacious wagon, you'll have plenty of space to bring your produce home.

7. Join in the Festivities

Attend a fall festival! During autumn, there are plenty of harvest festivals happening, marking the arrival of the new season. Gather up your little ones and immerse yourselves in the excitement, relishing in the various fun-filled activities and entertainment that these celebrations have to offer. It's a wonderful way to make lasting memories and embrace the spirit of the fall season. For all-day excursions like these, we recommend the convenience of the BOB Gear Renegade Wagon Bundle. This package comes with two UPF 50+ canopies to keep your little ones cozy and covered – don’t let a little sun or rain ruin your fun!

8. Go Stargazing

Fall provides an excellent opportunity to explore the night sky, thanks to earlier sunsets and comfortable temperatures. Wrap up your little ones warmly, pop them in the wagon, equip yourself with a simple constellation map, and embark on a journey to discover what celestial wonders your kids can spot above. It's a delightful and educational experience that allows you to connect with the beauty of the night sky while spending quality time together.

The Takeaway

As the crisp autumn days unfold, incorporating wagons into your family's fall festivities adds an extra layer of joy and convenience. Whether you're apple picking, navigating a corn maze, or attending a lively fall festival, the trusty wagon becomes a versatile companion, making the experience even more memorable. So, gather your loved ones, load up your wagon, and immerse yourselves in the simple yet delightful pleasures of fall. These family activities not only create lasting memories but also embody the spirit of togetherness that makes this season truly special. Happy fall adventures!
