Fall is my favorite season. Here in New England, the weather is perfect, the foliage is beautiful, and there are a ton of fall activities to do with the family. Our family is really big on doing activities together, but with so many ideas, it’s sometimes hard to keep them all straight, and make sure they actually happen. Creating a fall bucket list has been the perfect solution to ensuring we intentionally plan out the fall season and maximum our time together as a family. Prior to creating our bucket lists, we would frequently say “One day, we should do <enter whatever fun activity here>”, but they never seemed to happen. Either we forget about them, or simply run out of free time to schedule them. That is why having a personalized fall bucket list is a must have! (Be sure to check out our posts on creating a summer bucket list and winter bucket list as well!)

WHY DO YOU NEED A FALL BUCKET LIST?

 

  • Do you sit around wondering how you can fill your days?
  • Are your weekends filled with various birthday parties and get-togethers and you never have time to fit in your own family fun?
  • Do you look back on prior months and wish you did certain activities that you never got a chance to do?
  • Do you always intend to catch up with certain friends (or schedule playdates) but never come around to doing it?
  • Do you have a list of books your want to read, movies you want to see, or concerts you want to attend?
  • Do you wonder what to do with the kids on a rainy day?
  • Do you look back on the fall and wonder where it went, but don’t have anything to show for it?
  • Do you want to maximize your fall and have THE MOST FUN EVER!

 

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you need a fall bucket list!

 

A fall bucket list is a simple resource that encourages you to brainstorm all the fun activities that you want to plan. Having a fall bucket list encourages you to think about the life that you want to live and is the first step to putting it into action. By putting together a fall bucket list, you are forced to think about all the things you want to do, people you want to see, places you want to visit, and put them out into the universe to happen.

Putting together a family fall bucket list gives everyone in the family a chance to choose adventures and contribute to your family’s precious memories.

 

HOW DO I PUT TOGETHER A FALL BUCKET LIST?

 

Typically, you put together a fall bucket list in the beginning of the fall, but there isn’t any reason you can’t start mid-fall! All you need is paper and a pen. (Of course, I’m biased, and would suggest using my customizable fall bucket list template, but you can use a simple blank paper as well.) (See the form below to access your free printable fall bucket list template.)

Plan out your fall bucket list with this free printable. Keep track of the activities you want to do in the fall with your kids or your whole family. Read more for why you should have a fall bucket list and ideas and indoor and outdoor activities to include. #fallbucketlist #fallactivities #fall

To start, brainstorming all of the fun activities and adventures you want to go on. I like to categorize my bucket lists into the following categories:

  • Outdoor Activities
  • Indoor Activities
  • Nighttime Activities
  • Places to Go
  • Playdates to Schedule
  • People to Visit
  • Things to Make
  • Things to Learn
  • Books/Movies/Concerts

I like to do this together as a family. That way everyone gets a say and can contribute to planning the fun.

PUTTING YOUR FALL BUCKET LIST INTO ACTION

 

Once you have your personalized family fall bucket list, you have to put it into action. Writing it all down is a good first step but planning it out is even better. Grab a calendar (or use my free fall bucket list printable calendar) to start scheduling out when you want to do the various activities on your list.

I prefer to schedule out the big activities in advance but leave some room for spontaneity. (You can’t predict the weather so it would be hard to schedule out all the outdoor and indoor activities in advance without knowing the weather.)

Here is a sample of our family’s fall bucket list calendar:
