A classic fall bucket list – things to do this fall with your kids
I made a list of all the things I wanted to do this fall with my girls. I love this time of year so much. Fall for me is like the last hurrah of the year before things begin to get really crazy with the holidays. This may very well be our last fall in this house and maybe even in Florida as we don’t know what the future brings for our family in the coming months. I want this season to have memorable moments that we can treasure together. I think bucket lists are so fun and they’re especially great with kids. My girls love taking the maker and checking things off as we go. Not to mention, having a bucket list puts your plans on paper and reminds you each day to make plans to actually go to that apple orchard or finally bake all those dang cookies. Life gets so busy and making a list that we can physically check off as we go along helps.
I discussed with my girls and we came up with this simple list of fun and festive things to do this fall.
Here’s what’s on our fall bucket list:
Go pumpkin picking
Make caramel apples (this will be a first for us and I’m so excited)
Play in the leaves
Have a family movie night watching our Halloween favorites (mainly Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin)
Carve Pumpkins (this will be a first for Millie)
Take a trip to an apple orchard
Bake pumpkin treats and deliver to friends
Visit the mountains
Take a hayride
Dress up and take fall pictures
I printed out our list, popped it in a frame and plan to use a dry erase marker to check off each of our adventures. I think it’s a fun inexpensive decorative piece for fall.
I’d love to hear some of your favorite fall traditions or things you love to do as a family! If you’d like to make your own fall bucket list I’ve got a couple free printables for you! I’m sharing our bucket list if you’d like to use it or you can also download a blank version and either type in your list using Microsoft Word or simply write it in.
Pin the fall bucket list for later:
