Activities To Do In The Fall- The Ultimate Way!
After the recent social distancing, make this autumn a bit engaging by challenging any other family friends, or relatives and see who completes it first and then share pictures.
(Even better if you can manage to do the activities together!)
Just share the link to this post with them or save the image below on your Pinterest activities board.
How To Complete Your Bucket List Before Autumn Ends…
We all wish we can do everything on our list but as real-life happens- school, daily house chores, illnesses, appointments… our dream bucket lists get overlooked before we even start.
So the best way to not forget your bucket list this fall is: keep it front and center.
Just print out the bucket list using any of the yellow buttons on this page, get it approved by everyone, and then display it in your living room.
As you plan your weekly routine, remember to add your 3 activities from the fall bucket list wherever you find some room.
You can also put a copy of the list in your planner (<— this is the one I made for myself!) so you don’t forget it when planning your week.
Then, simply keep ticking things off as you go…
Can’t Find Time For Your Fall Bucket List?
Setting an intention is so important. The universe will rearrange stuff and make space for your plan when you do.
If you set an intention, as in, really pause and hand-on-heart tell yourself, “I AAMM going to do at least a few fun things this fall!”, then any chunk of time that we already have to spend together as a family can be used for doing your fall bucket list ideas too.
For example, we all have breakfast every day, simply plan a little in advance, and switch your next breakfast with cinnamon roll breakfast.
One activity ticked! ✔️
Here are just a few other routine times that most families already have to spend together.
- Call pool time
- Breakfast time
- Dinner time
- Tv time
You can easily plug in your fall activity or swap the regular routine with your activity for the day.
You may need to add an extra few minutes into your time. But the fun, family bonding, and laughter are well worth that additional time!
If we wait for everything to be perfect, lots of free time at hand, everyone super excited, all things Pinterest perfect… the activity usually never gets done.
Remember, the key is to KEEP. IT. SIMPLE. so no one gets stressed out.
Your Fall Bucket List Plan Of Action
Plan to tick off around 3 fall bucket list items per week. You can do two during the weekdays, and one over at the weekend. This way, you can complete the entire list before winter officially starts. (i.e. December 21, or whenever it is that your toes and ears freeze…).
Don’t forget to take lots of pictures and double bonus points if you make an album of all your fall bucket list activities just like we make albums for our summer activities.
Now, let’s jump in!
