Fall Bucket List
Fall is here again and with that comes a list of fun autumn-themed adventures. Enjoy the season of giving thanks and pumpkin spice everything with this festive fall bucket list that you can complete with family and friends.
Decorate the house
There’s no better way to get in the spirit of the season than decorating! Surround yourself and your house with creative fall decorations. Autumn flowers, pumpkins, leaves, and orange and yellow colors are the perfect way to fill your house.
Go to a pumpkin patch
This is a great way to get family and friends of all ages together for a fun fall day. Take some cute pictures while you’re there and take home a pumpkin for some spooky carving later.
Make a pie
Yummmmm! Who doesn’t love a homemade pie? Pumpkin, apple, pecan, sweet potato, whatever your favorite is, bake one! Fill your home with fall scents and share a slice with loved ones and neighbors.
Get lost in a corn maze
Would fall really be complete without getting lost in a corn maze? It’s an adventurous way to spend time out in the crisp air and engage in a fun fall activity.
Rake leaves for a neighbor in need
Make sure to do something kind this fall and lend a hand to a neighbor who might need it. If you know someone in your community who is unable to do yard work this season, step in and ask if you can help them out. They’ll be so delighted by your thoughtfulness.
Throw a Halloween party
It is spooky season after all! Dress up in a fun costume, decorate with spooky décor, and make some spooky snacks to trick or treat your guests to a night of entertainment.
Host a Friendsgiving
One of my favorite fall traditions is having a Friendsgiving dinner with all of my best friends. It’s a time to get together and celebrate with your friends before you part ways to spend Thanksgiving with family. You can all pitch in potluck style and celebrate being thankful for each other.
Invite someone to your Thanksgiving Dinner
You might be so excited for your mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie, and you should be, but don’t forget about friends and coworkers who might not have any plans this year. Extend an invitation to someone who has nothing to do this Thanksgiving, and enjoy the day together. The more, the merrier right?!
Go on a hayride
Wrap up in a flannel blanket and take a hayride. If you’re into spookiness try a haunted hayride, or if you’re a ‘scared-y cat’ like me, stick to the family-friendly version.
Grab your marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate! Bonfires are the perfect excuse to cozy on up by the fire with your loved ones. Enjoy the cold autumn air and watch the sunset while enjoying the warmth from the fire and those around you.
Participate in a food drive
Every fall, community organizations plan food drives to collect non-perishable items. The food will be donated to shelters and to those who are less-fortunate this holiday season. Think about all the unused cans you have in your pantry right now and consider how the food can benefit others.
Go apple picking
It’s apple season! Take this seasonal opportunity to make a day of hand-picking fresh apples in a blooming apple orchard. The best part is the candle apples, apple pie, and all sweet treats you can make later.
Sip apple cider
Whether it’s homemade from your apple orchard picks, or store-bought, warm up some cider and make any night taste like autumn.
Go to a football game/tailgate
Spooky season, sweater season, and football season! No matter the team colors you choose to sport (pun intended), we can all agree that fall means football. What better way to ring in the season than by going to a game? Take it one step further by hosting a tailgate before-hand. Make burgers on the grill, play a game of corn hole, and enjoy an iced cold beverage!
