25 Fun Fall Bucket List Ideas

Good morning! It's the second week of October and, Fall is in full swing. The days are getting shorter, mornings are cooler, the leaves are starting to fall and there are pumpkins and mums everywhere. 

I am naturally a homebody, so cosy days at home with a pot of soup simmering on the stove, a football game in the background and a pile of books next to the fireplace are just a few of the things I love about Fall. 

That said I do plan on getting out to enjoy all that Fall has to offer. Here are 25 things I have on my Fall bucket list.

Slab Apple

1. Visit the local pumpkin patch. 
2. Go on a hayride. 
3. Go apple picking and then come home and make my grandmothers' Slab Apple Pie,  apple cider, and homemade caramel apples. 
4. Rake leaves for my elderly neighbor. 
5. Check out the local craft fairs and festivals. 

6. Go on a road trip.
7. Have a family picnic
8. Have a Fall themed open house. 
9. Make our favorite chili. 
10. Take in the Fall colors. 

11. Enjoy an evening around a bon fire.

  1. I don't have a bucket list. I just kind of do what comes to mind. The other day I was at Homegoods and they had those tartan blankets and people were snapping them up.
