Our family autumn bucket list

September 25, 2017

I love autumn so I have put together an autumn bucket list for our family. This is a list of all the things we could do together this autumn. I’ve included activities for my two children (15 months and 4 years), things I want to cook and family trips and activities. I hope the weather improves as it feels like it rains every day at the moment.

  1. Take a walk in the woods – I’m sure we’ll do this more than once. I love a walk in the wood at any time of year but I love visiting in the autumn when the leaves are changing colour.Our Family Autumn Bucket List
  2. Make a nature scavenger hunt for F (my 4 year oldย daughter)
  3. Collect leaves to use for sensory play and crafts (if we ever have enough dry days to let them dry out).
  4. Carve a pumpkin.
  5. Take F trick or treating.
  6. Take the kids to my friend’s Halloween party.
  7. Let the girls jump in piles of leaves and puddles.
  8. Watch some fireworks – I love fireworks. I’m not sure whether we’ll go to a display or not this year. We missed last year with E being only 5 months old. I can’t make my mind up if she’s still too young this year. F was pretty underwhelmed last year when I took her for a walk to see some. She asked when she could go to bed!
  9. Spend a morning at forest school.
  10. Collect “autumn treasures” – that’s what F called conkers, acorns and pine cones last year.Our Family Autumn Bucket List
  11. Plan and enjoy our week in the Lake District. We love the Lakes and I can not wait to go back this autumn.
  12. Go for a walkย at Dunham Massey.
  13. Watch the girls jump in leaves and muddy puddles.
  14. Drink hot chocolate.
  15. Make autumn play dough.
  16. Set up an autumn tuff spot for the girls.
  17. Read autumn picture books to my daughters.
  18. Make an apple crumble.
  19. Make homemade soup.
  20. Plant spring bulbs.
  21. Have an autumn picnic.

I’m sure I will be sharing blog posts or just Instagram photos as we tick things off our list. I shared this post last year about all our autumn adventuresย if you want further inspiration.

Have you made an autumn bucket list? I love to hear what is on yours.

  1. There are some fantastic ideas here. I love walking in the woods and collecting leaves and things to use to craft with when we get back home. The hot chocolate, Apple crumble and home made soup sound amazing. X

  2. Although autumn isn’t my favourite season (way to sad to see the long summer days go), reading your list does remind me that I actually do quite like it. There’s nothing like a walk in the woods as the weather cools! Great bucket list – your family is in for a treat!

  3. Love this, I done a Autumn bucket list last year but haven’t got around to writing one yet this year. It is definitely my favourite season as there is so much to do!

  4. Those wellies are so adorable! We actually did a scavenger hunt in the forest today and jumped about in puddles. I’m looking forward to bonfire night! It’s my one of my favourite nights of the year.

  5. What a great bucket list, we haven’t done ours yet so you have given me some inspiration ๐Ÿ™‚ – we love Halloween,’it’s our favourite time of the year x

  6. I love how you’ve put “watch the girls jump in piles of leaves and puddles.” Are you not going to join in? Lol
    I haven’t put an autumn list together yet so this has given me some inspiration ๐Ÿ˜Š x

  7. What a wonderful list full of inspiration and enthusiasm for this season. You’re brave going to the Lakes at this time of year though. #BLOGGERCLUBUK

    1. We always go.in October. It’s gorgeous in the autumn. Yes there is always a risk of rain. It’s always busy at october half term.
