fall 2018 bucket list- free download
It’s almost fall y’all!!!!
Oh this is my favorite time of the year! The smells, the tastes, the changing temperatures, the cozy socks, sweaters and blankets, the days are becoming shorter and life seems to downshift a bit. Each year we create our bucket list of things we would like to do during the fall- some years we get most of it done, other years only a few things, but it’s fun to have these ideas on hand to prompt a fun outing with friends or family. Check out our bucket list below and download the free printable bucket list at the bottom of the post.

Make Halloween costumes - full disclosure here - I add this to my bucket list every fall and I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve pulled it off- fingers crossed and with some planning and getting organized I will pull it off this year
Knit a scarf - knitting is my fall hobby, something about the days being shorter and the temps dropping makes me want to get cozy on my sofa with a ball of yarn and a cable knit pattern
Make a fall scented candle - homemade candles make great Christmas gifts for teachers and friends. This kit from Amazon uses soy which is my preference but there a lot of options at both Hobby Lobby and JoAnns.
Watch a scary movie - again, I’m not one to really enjoy a super scary movie, but it is fun to get into the spirit of things with a good scare
Visit a pumpkin patch
Go on a hay ride
Get lost in a corn maze
