Fall Bucket List for Mommy and Me

Do you want a list of fun things to do with your little one this fall? I’ve designed a bucket list that is sure to create lots of fun memories for you and your little one this season! Come take a look at my Fall Bucket List for Mommy and Me and grab it here! Don’t forget to hang it where your kiddo can see it!

Today I’m linking up with my sweet blogger friends for a fun Wednesday Chat about all things Fall!!! YAY!!!! If you’re a blogger come join us! And if you’re a reader I hope you enjoy our posts! 😊

Can you believe it’s September? I mean seriously where is time going?!

August went by in a flash and I was kicking myself for not making a summer bucket list with Caroline. So I wanted to make sure I didn’t make that mistake again for this fall. Insert my Mommy and Me Fall Bucket List! And Mr. can join in when he can! πŸ˜Š

When I created this list I was trying to think of some of the fun things I would like to do with little miss Caroline this fall and I think I got most of them down here!

Fall Bucket List for Mommy and Me

Find different colored leaves!

This one is going to be a little difficult for us here in Florida but I’m hoping we will find some! I’m planning to make a fun craft with little miss depending on how many we find!🀞Fingers crossed!

Make Apple Pie

Hot Pie, Steam, Apple Pie, Pumpkin Pie

This one should be fun….I hope! lol! I have never actually made Apple Pie. I’m excited to try it out and I think little miss will have fun too! She loves to make banana bread with me and has actually become quite the baker. So we’ll see how that goes! If you hae any Apple Pie recipes you reccommend other than driving to Publix and picking one up πŸ˜‚ let me know in the comments!

Watch It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown

It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown is such a classic! To me it’s a must-watch during this time of year. I’m hoping Caroline will love it!

Finger Paint a Pumpkin Craft

We LOVE finger painting around here and I’m hoping to get a cute little pumpkin handprint craft this year. I think I will make it at the end of September so we can have it displayed for the month of October. I used to make crafts closer to the actual holiday then display the craft for about a week now I try to do it a month ahead of time so we can enjoy it longer.

Buy a Halloween Costume

For little miss, this is one of her favorite topics. She actually will tell me, mama tell me what I will wear for Halloween (she means ask me what I will be for Halloween). πŸ˜‚ Every day it’s different. Some days she says a fairy, others it’s Snow White, others it’s Rapunzel, and some days it’s a doctor. We actually bought a Snow White outfit and I’m planning to buy the others too. I have wanted to build her dress up collection anyway and I think this is a great time of year to do that. you can really find costumes cheap on Amazon and at places like Costco or TJ Maxx.

Carve a Pumpkin

This one explains itself. So excited for it!

Visit a Farm

Three Black-and-white Cows

Little miss keeps talking about going to a farm so I thought this time of year would be perfect to visit one! We are both pretty excited about it!

Get Starbucks Pumpkin Bread

YUM!!!!! Do I need to say more?

Write a Thank You letter

I thought this time of year would be a great time to show those we love why we are thankful for them. I think I will do this a couple of times with little miss. I will ask her why she is thankful for a person or what she loves about them and I will jot it down and have her draw a sweet pic to go with it, most likely scribbles but sweet none the less! 😊

Paint a Pumpkin

Pumpkin, Autumn, Harvest, Halloween

There are always lots and lots of small pumpkins at the pumpkin patches we visit so I thought this year we would get several and bring them home to actually just paint them. Should be fun and super colorful!

Decorate the house for fall

Little miss has already started in her kitchen and she is over the moon excited about it! I told her we would decorate the rest of the house after Labor Day! YAY!

Visit a Pumpkin Patch

I think we will try to visit a couple of pumpkin patches this fall. I love seeing all the pumpkins out. Going to a pumpkin patch is a fun little adventure for the whole family!

So that about wraps it up for this fun adventure! I hope you have fun with your Mommy and Me Fall Bucket List! Don’t forget to grab it here by joining my super fun email list where you will receive many more fun activities like this!

    I agree with everything on this list, Holley!! And even though Zach is 17, I think I might do this with him too since he leaves me next year to go to college. Ahhhh!! So much fun and opportunities for great memories to be made on this list.

    • Holley on September 2, 2020 at 12:01 pm

      Aww YAY! I love that it even works for an almost college kid! Gosh, I will be crying with you next year as he leaves. I cry reading or watching any mama say bye to her kiddo for college. Makes me tear up now.

    Lots of fun ideas! My boys and I make a good 1/2 dozen apple pies each fall (we give a few away and freeze a one for both Thanksgiving & Christmas). We use my mom’s recipe and sometimes “cheat” by buying pie crusts. Honestly, I think the hardest part is dealing with the crusts so we often buy them! I did share this recipe on my blog:

    I really need to get working on our fall bucket list…

      Thank you so much for this recipe!! I love it! I think I will be buying the pie crusts too! LOVE IT!
