Fall Bucket List Banner Repost

Fall is my favorite season by far! We are starting to feel the crisp air in the mornings and I feel invigorated and excited to celebrate. I pulled out my Fall Bucket List I made last year and thought I would reshare for those who may have missed it. I love this bucket list and the kids are so excited to start taking them down!

Fall Bucket List

We did it together as a family and my 1 and 3 year old were able to help.

You will need...

paper cutter


3 patterned and 3 solid cards tock that are complementary to each other


clothes pins

Paper Crimper (at least I think that is what it is called!)

To make...

1. Using a paper cutter, cut out 3- 4 x 6 cards from each of the three patterned cardstock.

2. Cut out 3- 3 x 5 cards from each of the three solid cardstock.

3. Have the children ink the sides of each card.

4. Run each solid card through the paper crimper, paying attention to the grip, you can vary the amount of crimping.

Even Hannah had fun!

5. As a family, decide what activities you want to include on your bucket list. Write one on each card. A few of our activities include... hay ride and cider, carving pumpkins, playing in the leaves, visiting a few local events, and camping.

6. Have the children glue each written card onto one piece of patterned card.

7. Tie the ends of rafia together to make a "string" long enough for all the cards. Make sure you leave enough rafia at each end to hang up the list.

8. Lay the rafia string down on a table and place each card down along the bottom. Have the children attach the cards to the rafia with clothes pins.

9. Smile

10. Hang where all your visitors can see! As you complete each card, take it off and relish in the memories that you just created!!!

How exciting it is to be together as a family!

That is an absolutely wonderful idea! I will have to do that next year when my baby gets a bit older!

I'm pinning it!

Hope you are having a wonderful day!

This is fantastic! I've been doing the fall blog challenge up until today. I just did not have a creative post to offer. I love this idea though! Is it ok if I pin it? I want to do this with my kiddos!

You know what would also be replace the cards when you do them with pictures of you all doing them! Just my idea!

This is a super cute idea!

My daughter would have just as much fun helping me make this as she would doing the things on the cards.

Stopping by from SITS! I don't have kids but this looks like it would make a great classroom project for teachers! And of course I'll pin it to remember for when I hopefully do :-)
