Fall Bucket List Printable

Fall is my favorite time of the year! The changing of the leaves, the smells of apple and cinnamon in the air, and smiles carved into pumpkins. So every year my family and I make a Fall Bucket List of all the fun things we want to do that season! We are lucky that here in Tennessee we get a real fall with great temperatures and big pumpkin patches.

Fall is such a fantastic season filled with crisp air, colorful leaves, and plenty of opportunities for fun activities. Here’s a list of some awesome fall activities for kids that will make this season unforgettable:

Here is what we added to our Fall Bucket List:

  • Apple Picking- We love apple picking, it’s a great family activity that yields wonderful apple recipes when you get home!
  • Hayrides- Hayrides are always fun to do, it’s a perfect way to check out the pretty colors of fall. (Or get scared on a haunted hayride!)
  • Spiced Lattes- Nothing says Fall like a spiced pumpkin latte right?
  • Pumpkin Carving- Every year we pick a theme for our pumpkins (and by we I mean my daughter) and this year we chose Skylanders! After you pick your theme don’t forget to check out these pumpkin carving tips!
  • Football- Fall means it’s football season again! Make sure to make some game day recipes for the big game!
  • Trick-Or-Treat- Halloween is my favorite holiday and who doesn’t love to go trick-or-treating right? If you are looking for some great Halloween ideas we have them for you!
  • Make Chili- Chili is one of my favorite fall and winter meals and can be customized so many different ways. Here is a great crockpot chili recipe.
  • Family Time- Nothing is as important any time of year than spending time with your family <3
  • Corn Maze- I love getting lost and laughing in a good corn maze!
  • Go on a Nature Walk- Grab the camera and head on a nature walk with your family. Take a leisurely hike in the woods or at a nearby park. Enjoy the fall foliage, look for critters, and breathe in that crisp autumn air.
  • Make Hot Cider- Hot cider is one of my favorite things to drink on a cold fall night, here is a great recipe for Autumn Tea.
  • Carve the Turkey- Thanksgiving is a perfect holiday for great food and spending time with family. Here are some tips on How to cook a perfect turkey.
  • Jump in Leaf Piles- Go back to your childhood and rake leaves into big piles and jump in them, great fall fun!
  • Give Thanks- Most importantly give thanks for everything you have!

  8. Corn Maze Adventure: Find a local corn maze and spend an afternoon navigating through the twists and turns. It’s like a real-life puzzle!
  9. Bird Watching: Set up a bird feeder in your backyard and observe the birds that stop by as they prepare for winter migration.
  10. Fall Sports: Try out some fall sports like soccer, flag football, or even a family game of touch football in the park.
  11. Harvest Festival: Many towns and cities host fall festivals with games, food, and entertainment. Check out local events and take your kids for a day of fun.
  12. Pumpkin Decorating: Aside from carving, you can also let your kids get creative with paint, markers, and other craft supplies to decorate their pumpkins.
