The weather is finally starting to feel like fall here in Middle Tennessee and there are plenty of ways to bring fall fun to your own happy backyard! So grab your family and head outside to enjoy one of the activities below:

Light the firepit. Get out the hot dogs and s’mores ingredients and set up the firepit to enjoy a crisp October or November evening outside.



Camp out on your trampoline. This month’s weather is perfect for a night under the stars. If you’ve got a trampoline in your backyard, it makes the perfect basecamp for the evening and gives you a little cushion for the night. JumpSport even makes tent accessories to put directly on your trampoline!


Celebrate that basketball season is back. October 25th kicked off the NBA season. Kick off the season in your own backyard with a fun basketball celebration of your own. Play games like H-O-R-S-E, Around the World and BUMP or grab a few neighbors and play your own game of 2-on-2, 3-on-3 or more.

Enjoy the World Series fun. It may be the beginning of basketball season, but don’t forget about a reason to celebrate another sport – the World Series. The Cubs are in the World Series for the first time in 70 years and it’s going to be a great series! Pull out the baseball equipment and start your own game in the backyard to celebrate America’s pastime.

Turn on a backyard movie. Set up a sheet on the side of your house or rent or buy an inflatable movie screen and show a movie outside. Get out the blankets and get comfortable for a fun night just for your family or for the entire neighborhood.

Create a cross-backyard scavenger hunt. Get the whole neighborhood involved and create a cross-backyard scavenger hunt. Collaborate with the neighbors to set up clues that lead kids to have to do obstacle course-type activities to get to new clues. Kids will have a blast and be getting exercise along the way!

Rake Leaves. Don’t underestimate the power of taking a chore and turning it into fun! Get the kids involved in raking leaves and then let them jump in the piles when all is done. Or take it up a notch with a leaf pile obstacle course incorporating your playset and/or trampoline.
