The weather is cooler here in Southern California, the leaves are changing, and everyone is decorating for fall and Halloween. This means lots of family activities leading up to Thanksgiving and the holidays.

I’m sharing my epic fall bucket list of 100 things you can do with kids this fall. While you are scrolling through the list, enjoy these homemade pumpkin scones and pumpkin-flavored tea. This recipe will also help you knock number 24 off the list.

Grab a cup of tea, sit back, and let’s get started making pumpkin scones and planning our fall checklist. Everything is better when you have a cup of tea in hand. Let’s begin by making a pumpkin chai tea to sip on and enjoy with the pumpkin scones.

To turn your Chai Vanilla Bigelow Tea into a delicious pumpkin-flavored chai it’s so easy.

  • Begin by making a cup of the Chai Vanilla Bigelow tea
  • Add 1 teaspoon of pumpkin puree
  • Add a pinch of nutmeg, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice.
  • Top with a little milk, and then stir your tea.

( 1 voted )


  • 2 1/2 cups plain flour
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tbs baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice + extra for icing
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup butter, cold
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tbs milk
  • cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. In a bowl whisk together the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, and salt.
  3. Cut in the butter and crumble together - you can use a pastry attachment to your mixer, or pop on some gloves and use your hands.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg, and then add the pumpkin puree and milk.
  5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and knead.
  6. Brush a little melted butter over a scone pan (if you have one), or simply line a baking tray with parchment paper and make a mound of mixture scoring it into slices before baking.
  7. Bake for approximately 15 minutes.
  8. Remove from oven and allow to cool a little before transferring to a wire rack for icing.
  9. To make the icing combine the powdered sugar, milk, and a pinch of pumpkin pie spice in a bowl. Drizzle over scones, and then sprinkle a little cinnamon over the top.

What a fantastic list of 100 things to do! My family and I have knocked off a few on your list but some would be completely new and fun! By the way, I love your scone mold. I’ve never seen that before! 🙂 I adore scones and am actually planning to make some this weekend. I hadn’t thought of pumpkin, I should try these though, because I have a can of pumpkin in my pantry! #client
