It’s Almost FALL! I mean it’s so close I can feel it! Ever since my calendar said September, all I can think about is going to pumpkin patches, drinking hot chocolate and my very unhealthy obsession with candles that smell like pies. Fall is my absolute favorite season! It’s also a great time to do some family bonding, revisit why you’re grateful for one another and make some AWESOME memories. That’s why I’ve created a FALL FAMILY FUN BUCKET LIST to help you and your family have the perfect fall season together. Stay to the end for a FREE “Let’s Give Thanks” Printable Activity!

Fall Family Fun Bucket List


Decorate your home with all things FALL I love a good challenge and this can be a fun way to get some family competition going. Assign different areas in your home, have a door decorating contest or do crafts together…It’s up to YOU! The best part about it is, it doesn’t have to be expensive. There are plenty of seasonal items at Dollar Trees.

The Fall Family Fun Bucket List is a list of fall families activities encouraging families to build stronger relationships, find gratitude and remember the real meaning of the holiday season. Use this fall family bucket list to create the memories of a lifetime!

Snacks Anyone?

Is it me or does food taste better in the fall? I mean really, it gives you the opportunity to bust out the mixing bowls and make sweet treats. One of my favorite things to do is bake cookies and have hot chocolate for a family movie night. More of an outdoor person? Have a BONFIRE ! mmm s’mores…

Attend A Fall Festival !

Most communities offer a fall festival that is cheap enough for the whole family to enjoy. You can find games, mini pumpkin patches, food and more. Check with local schools, community centers or social media to see if a fall festival is coming to a city near you!

Attend A Football Game!

Fall means Friday Night Lights! If sports are your thing then take the family to a football game. Professional is a bit on the pricy side. Support your local college or high school team. Don’t forget to bring the school spirit!

Go to a Pumpkin Patch…Then have a carve Fest!

Can we all agree that pumpkin patches are so much fun? Take a day the find the perfect pumpkins with your family. This is an activity that even the smallest kids can enjoy. After getting your perfect pumpkin, you can either carve, decorate or paint them. Some of my favorite tutorials can be found on Pinterest.

Take a Hay Ride!

I will never forget my first hay ride. I was in the first grade and my school had taken a field trip to a pumpkin patch. I thought it was the coolest thing ever to be riding on a hay pulled tractor. To tell you the truth it’s even MORE fun as an adult! Hay rides are perfect for the whole family but don’t worry, if you haven’t gotten there yet, they make the PERFECT fall date night…Guys take notes!

Take Fall Family Pictures

Fall is hands down my favorite time to take pictures. The scenery is perfection with such vibrant tree colors. This makes the perfect backdrop for a family photo. All you have to do is find the perfect scenic spot in your town to take pictures . If you’re short on time the yard at your home will work just fine. Keep the fallen leaves…It’s much more fun!

Halloween…Family Style!

Having a hard time picking different costumes for all your kids? No Problem !  Go with a family theme. It’s just easier to organize. Plus the kids will get a kick out of seeing their parents in costume. If you’re more fancy DIY IT! Bust out your creative side and go all out.

Cook Thanksgiving Dinner TOGETHER!

Why let mom do all the work? Cooking is fun and a great way to bring the entire family together. Even the smaller kids can have a simple task like butter the rolls or stir the punch. A family that cooks together stays together so put those little chefs to work!

Make a list of reasons why you’re GRATEFUL!

The holiday season is all about love, giving and appreciation. Take a few moments out of your day to write down why you’re grateful. Did you receive something? Do you appreciate your family? Write it down! Then, share a couple of those reasons with your family.

  2. Amy,
    Yes! I feel the same way. I automatically felt different when I knew that fall was getting closer. I get that feeling of happiness about the entire holiday season. I also wish it could be fall all year but we live in south Florida so unfortunately, we miss the cool air and changing trees

  3. I love the dollar tree. Its a great place to find inexpensive and cute decor for fall.
    great list for families.

  8. Thank you! I hope you get to participate. We live in Miami so fall doesn’t exactly exist haha. Fake it till you make it! We will still go to pumpkin patches and do other fall things…just in shorts. We are planning a trip to Georgia next month to do all things fall.

  9. I seriously went to Walmart today to pick up a few of their seasonal kitchen towels for like $.88 So I’m excited about the fall even though it’s scorching hot outside!!

  10. So I am not the only one who gets excited about $.88 dish towels? Okay! Because my husband thinks I’m a crazy person lol You can never have enough dish towels.

  15. We just started decorating for fall and I love it! We always wait until after my husbands birthday (which happens to literally be the first day of fall according to our calendars). We hit Target dollar spot and the Dollar Tree last weekend. I think those are the best places for fall decorations!

  16. Thanks for your comment! He has such a cool birthday . We also love dollar tree and don’t get me started with target dollar spot. My husband has to pull me out of there every time we go to target. Everything about that store just makes me happy!

    I so wish we were back in the States to visit a pumpkin patch, but we can definitely get our snack game on! ^_^
