Fall is officially here, which means cooler weather, falling leaves, nature crafts and loads of time outdoors. Making a seasonal ‘bucket list’ has become a little bit of a tradition in our home, and this printable fall bucket list covers everything from splashing in puddles to making a big pot of homemade soup, to whipping up spiced play dough and visiting the farmer’s market. Most of the items on the list are either free or inexpensive and you can do as many or as little as you like.
