October Bucket List

Kennedy and I are doing something fun for the month of October… we’re doing one fall activity every single day! I wanted to share this list with you guys in case anyone wanted to do it with us. (Unfortunately, these are all geared towards toddlers so some of them might be a little weird if you don’t have kids yet, hahah!) Some of them do require some preparation, too – I went ahead and ordered all of the ingredients we would need for baking and craft activities! Details below!

October Bucket List Ideas

  1. Make a fall craft (here are some ideas: leaf people, acorn necklace, scarecrow spoon, autumn leaf suncatcher, pinecone hedgehogs, paper plate scarecrow)
  2. Visit the library

  4. Make nature rubbings

    Dad carved a jack-o-lantern and our toddler painted one to copy him! Turned out so cute and such a fun activity.
