Fun Fall Activities for the Family

The temperature may be dropping, but that doesn't mean you have to be cooped up in your room til next spring! Check out these fun and healthy ways for you and your fam to get active during the fall season!

Fall Activities - Jump Up, Jump Up and Get Down!

Notice all those leaves carpeting your backyard? Chances are pretty high that the 'rents will put you on yard duty, but here's how you can make it fun - rake up the leaves into a big pile and jump in it! Be careful not to jump off anything that's too high off the ground, or else you'll hurt yourself.

Fall Activities - All Falls Down

Leaves are not only good for jumpin' in, but also for decorating! Take a hike through the local park to check out the beautifully changing colors of the leaves. Collect as many different leaves as you can find, as well as acorns and pinecones. You can paint, stamp or frame them into some pretty cool art pieces.

Fall Activities - 32, 64, Hut!

Fall is the season for trick-or-treating, giving thanks and playing football! Playing the game is a lot more fun than watching it, so put down that remote, get off the couch and gather up your friends and family for a friendly game of touch football. You can even dress up in team colors to really get into the spirit of the game.

Fall Activities - All Around the Farmyard

Farms offer a lot of fun activities during the fall. You can run around and get lost in a corn maze on a corn farm, go apple-picking at an orchard to bake a pie with your mom, or go on a hay ride or tractor ride!

Fall Activities - Have a Spa Day

After all that jumpin' and runnin' around, you're bound to work up a sweat. So come in from the cool weather and head to the spa with your ma to relax and unwind. Many spas, like the Ritz-Carlton Spa Orlando, offer teen spa packages that include exercise classes, make-up and skincare tips, and healthy lunches that you actually help make!

YEs I have been bullied. A lot. People who I think are my friends are back stabbers. They suddenly just like turn on me. I've had rumours spread about me and I was so sad. I hated being bullied. But the best thing to do if you are being bullied is to hold your head high and not cry. Because if you show a single tear that is what the bully wants And it will take you as an easy target and will bully you more and more and more and more. And bullies won't stop until you stand up to them.

I would also talk to them and tell them how you feel. If they still say they are signing you up for the membership as a 13 year old and it scares you that much I would just tell them to leave you off the membership until you do turn 13.

I think every house has some drama going on in it everyday. In my house my Mom is a divorced mother of 3 kids. My older sister is away at college but when she was here there were yelling matches between my mom and her about staying out too late and getting a speeding ticket. Also with my mom being the only one raising us she has to work full time leaving me to watch my little brother who is 10 after he gets home from school. There also can be some battles that go on there and my mom doesn't want to here it from me or him when she walks through the door after work. I just try to not make it all personal and chalk it up to the stress of everyday life.
