Labor Day is behind us, which means it’s time to bring on ALL THE FALL THINGS! Pumpkins! Apples! Plaid! Now that my kids are back in school, I’m definitely looking forward to sweater weather, colorful leaves, and fall harvest festivals. I teamed up with the super talented ladies of Ampersand Design Studio to create this printable fall bucket list that we can all fill with our favorite fall activities. Let the fall festivities begin!
It’s funny to me now, but I used to not be a huge fan of fall! Winter is my least favorite season, and I always felt this impending sense of doom and gloom when fall rolled around. But fall has definitely grown on me over the last few years! Maybe it’s having kids and seeing the joy of changing leaves and Halloween and hay mazes through their eyes? I’m not really sure! But I do definitely love the cool and crisp fall air and zero humidity. More of that, please.
I’m absolutely LOVING this colorful design from Ampersand Design Studio – you may be seeing some of these fun shapes on a pumpkin in the not-too-distant future! And how fun is the non-traditional color palette? It’s perfect for the transition from summer into fall. And of course there are plenty of spots to fill with all the things you love doing in the fall, from roasting s’mores to fall foliage nature hikes!
I have a whole bunch of activities that I’ve been saving for the cooler weather, from taking our kids to watch airplanes take off and land at a park near the airport to visiting my favorite flower gardens when they’re bursting with fall colors. I can’t wait!!
Ready to make your fall bucket list? Just download the printable file below and print it at home or at your local copy and print shop. I recommend printing on a bright white card stock so you get all the true colors in the design, ideally 80 lb paper weight or higher so it’s sturdy enough to hang on your wall!
Do you have any favorite fall traditions to suggest? Our fall traditions usually involve colorful leaves and baking, but I’d love to hear how your family celebrates this fabulous season!
