Fall is here already! After what seems like the fastest summer known to existence, it is time for cooler weather, changing leaves and all kinds of fun things to do! Each year we take fall pictures, pick pumpkins and go through a corn maze, but just for fun, I like to add a little more seasonal spirit each year. Here is this years Fall bucket list.
Go on a Hay ride: I love hay, I love horses and I love doing anything that involves getting to be around these magnificent creatures. A hay ride is a fun unforgettable way to make fall fun for the whole family!
Go to a Pumpkin Patch: We do this every year. Even on the years we grow on our pumpkins, it is just fun to wonder throughout a field and pick out the biggest, ugliest or most amazing pumpkin ever!
Go through a Corn maze: Who doesn’t love the sound of their feet shuffling in the dried corn husks being lost for an hour? This is also a great place to take pictures!
Jump in a Pile of Leaves: In case you forgot, this is fun! Ask any kid around! Save leaves to make the biggest pile ever!! (or buy a cottonwood tree!)
Make a Pumpkin Pie: Perfect your recipe early! Don’t forget to use the sweeter pie pumpkins and make it fresh from scratch!
Dress in a cozy Sweater: A nice fluffy warm oversize sweater is always a must have for fall!
Make Apple Butter: Sound good to me! Nice fresh and homemade!
Collect Pinecones: Go on a hike and collect pinecones. You can make them into air fresheners later, or one of many DIY crafts.
DIY Décor with Fallen Leaves: Collect cool colored leaves and use them for numerous projects throughout the house!
Make Pumpkin Chili: Nice warm comforting Chili with a pumpkin base sounds really yummy!
Take Fall pictures in the changing leaves: Family pictures look so amazing with a colorful tree background! Pintrest Ideas here!
Create a Fall Porch: Add pumpkins, corn husks, wreaths and colorful mums to your porch to make it look amazing this fall!
Last Outdoor Cookout: We will miss summer! Send it away with one last cookout! Don’t forget the celebratory S’mores at the end!
Pumpkin Bread: Well, I should just say pumpkin everything!! Get some pumpkin lattes while you are at it!
Find a cozy fall outfit: Some big boots, a big sweater and fall scarf would be a perfect touch to wear to all of these fun excursions! This Pintrest board has some ideas for the whole family!
Home made Apple cider: By this, I mean hot cider. You can actually make it from apples, but we usually by the juice at the store and then put it in the crock pot with our own concoction of cinnamon and spices.
Light some Fall Candles: Spiced apple, cinnamon and pumpkins are all scents that remind me of fall.
Carmel Apples: Make your own caramel or candied apples. Add a stick to the apple and dip away. Add nuts or any other finishing touches to your creation!
I would love to hear your ideas for a Fall bucket list this year. Time goes by so fast and there are just so many wonderful things you can do with your family! Get out there and have fun! We would love to hear all about it!
