Autumn is my favourite season. It’s all about cosy jumpers, roaring fires, long walks kicking through the fallen leaves and everything pumpkin. It’s a season packed with fun things; from Halloween to Bonfire night and conker season to pumpkin picking. There’s a lot going on, so I’ve created this awesome Autumn bucket list of things to do this season so we don’t miss a thing.
My Ultimate Autumn Bucket List
Go apple picking
Bake an apple pie with your family
Go bat watching at dusk
Make clay tree faces
Collect some conkers – apparently putting conkers in your house keeps spiders away, I’m not entirely convinced this works.
Have a game of conkers
Dress up for Halloween
Gather seeds to plant next spring
Go for an autumn walk and kick through the leaves
Go stargazing in your garden, wrap yourselves up in blankets and drink hot chocolate whilst gazing at the stars.
Decorate the house for Halloween
Put together a hot chocolate station, marshmallows, squirty cream, your favourite chocolate toppings and sprinkles, go for it!
Make some Halloween chocolate bark
Do some leaf crafts with the family
Have a go at leaf printing or leaf rubbing
Make a bug hotel in the garden and give your garden critters somewhere cosy to spend the winter
Collect some leaves and make autumn leaf crowns
Make hot apple juice
Bake a pumpkin pie with your family
Visit a pumpkin patch and pick some pumpkins
Carve some spooky pumpkins
Go out for pumpkin spice lattes
Toast marshmallows or make smores
Play with torches to create spooky shadows
Go for a torchlight walk
Make a batch of treacle toffee
Visit a farm and watch a combine harvester at work
Watch Hocus Pocus on Halloween
What are you up to this autumn? We’ve got lots of plans for pumpkin picking, leaf crafts, long walks and so much hot chocolate. The bat watching season is in full swing and we even spotted some in our garden last night. What’s on your autumn bucket list?
