Fall came like clockwork this year. September 1st and the weather was much cooler this morning that I had to tell the kids to wear a jacket to school this morning and we opened our windows at night. Summer is my favorite season, but I started following in love with fall after the birth of my kids. A couple years after they were born we started our Family Fall Bucket list. I recommend a family fall list just to spend time with the family. We get so caught up in everyday life that spending time not doing chores or catching up on one thing or another. Our family bucket list gets our family intentional fun time that we can schedule on our calendar to enjoy each other.
Making this list is simple, but you can definitely get creative. Every year this list grows as my kids love fall. It’s their favorite season. Here is some things on our list (and checkout the free printable for your family below).
