As you all know, I’m big into planning and lists. You might remember my summer bucket list. Well, Stephane is back to school and the air is starting to get that familiar nip. So, it’s time for our fall bucket list. I’m super excited to see what kind of fun and mischief we can get into as the leaves start to change.
I came up with a fun way to display our fall list. I found these great little cardstock cutouts complete with little stitch printing at Michaels for $3. A white marker and a some baker’s twine finished off this season’s display. We simply have to turn the cutout over when we’ve finished the activity. It’s super simple but super cute.
So here is our list for this fall!
- Visit a Pumpkin Patch – There’s a U-Pick farm about an hour away and I think it’ll be worth the drive this year now that Alexie is a little older.
- Take a Class – We decided that Alexie and I would take a Parents and Tots Gymnastics class this year.
- Go for a Fall Hike – I can’t wait to go for a walk in the woods and see the leaves in full colour.
- Watch a “Halloween” Movie – I’m not one for scary movies (I actually hate anything remotely scary) but a family-friendly Halloween movie is always a good call this time of year.
- Carve a Jack-o-Lantern – We usually each get a pumpkin and make our designs. Mine always has a cute little face and Ste always tries to make his really scary.
- Thanksgiving – My father-in-law is American so we technically could have 2 Thanksgivings!
- Remembrance Day – Wear a poppy and remember all those brave soldiers who have fought for our freedom!
- Make a Homemade Soup or Stew – With this colder weather moving in, it’s nice to enjoy a hot bowl of homemade soup!
- Make Your Halloween Costume – My husband’s family always made their own costumes and I’ve decided that we will do family themed costumes for as long as we can get away with it.
- Bake with Apples – Everyone has their favourite apple recipe and mine is definitely apple crisp with the apples picked from our very own trees
- Play in the Leaves – We’ll be raking up leaves and jumping into the piles for sure this year!
- Go to a Halloween or Harvest Party – Our church hosts a Harvest Party every year and it’s a great chance to have some fun and wear your costumes twice!
- Trick or Treat – this might seem obvious but we are really excited to take Alexie for the first time since she can walk now.
- Go to a Fall Festival or County Fair – Our local Cavalcade of Colours is always a fun way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
So there you have it! Now let’s see how many of these awesome activities we can get accomplished before the snow falls and winter rolls in.
