Screen-Free Fall Activities for Families (30+ list)

Looking to get off the screens and spend time together this fall? These 30 screen-free family activities will help you reconnect while having fun together.

I think we’re all screen-timed out around here. This past weekend we had a fun geocaching adventure (more about that later) and realized there’s so much that doesn’t involve a screen of some sort. Now that we’re approaching November, we are getting ideas ready for what we can do outdoors this fall. Here are 30 family-friendly fall activities that don’t involve screens and bring your family together.

Print out the free downloadable sheet and get going on it. Some of these things I even did as a kid and now get to share with my girls. We’ve been trying to find fun things to do inside as well as outside, just to get us offline a bit and enjoy more screen-free family activities.
