Fall Bucket List [Free Printable]

Fall is absolutely my favorite season.

Though I grew up in the Midwest, I lived in Phoenix for 16 years before moving here last year.  There is no such thing as “fall” in Phoenix.  When everyone else was cooling down and enjoying crisp mornings, us Phoenicians sweltered in 100-degree temperatures well into November.  No falling, crunchy leaves for us. Just cactus and juniper.

Being back in the Midwest with all the seasons has been exhilarating for me!  I can wear sweaters!  I can don fashionable boots and scarves!  I can drink hot cocoa in the mornings, take a walk through colorful rows of trees, and bake pumpkin goodies without making my kitchen stifling hot.  There’s so much we can do before it gets cold!

Don’t take it for granted, ladies.  Fall is fabulous.

Fall Bucket List plus free printable

This year, enjoy fall to the fullest with your kids and families by putting together a fall bucket list!  Or, print out mine and have fun checking it off together.  

Here’s what I’m going to do this fall: 

  • Make homemade apple cider
  • Bake pumpkin bread
  • Take a walk in the crisp morning air
  • Sleep with the windows open
  • Pick and carve pumpkins with my kids
  • Go apple picking
  • Go to a football game
  • Drive down East Post Road to see the colorful leaves
  • Take my kids to a fall festival
  • Break out my cozy sweaters
  • DIY some fall decor for my home
  • Eat a caramel apple 
  • Burn fall-scented candles
  • Jump in the leaves with my kids
  • Make a pie from scratch
  • Go on a hayrack ride
  • Have a backyard campfire (with S’mores)

You can download your Fall Bucket List here.  I hope you take the time to savor the season with your loved ones like I do!
