Hey, everyone! I'm Eimmie, a 10-year-old girl who loves being kind and enjoying the fall season. Autumn is such a special time, with all its beautiful colors, cool air, and lots of ways to spread happiness. That's why I've put together a super fun Fall Bucket List that combines kindness and the beauty of fall. Get ready to have a blast jumping into a pile of leaves, picking apples, and so much more! And guess what? I've made a free printable version of the bucket list for you to enjoy. Let's get started and make this fall the kindest one ever!
Jump in a Pile of Leaves
Who doesn't love jumping into a big pile of leaves? Grab your friends and family and head to the nearest park or your backyard. Gather a big pile of leaves by raking them up and take turns leaping into the soft, colorful cushion. And don't forget to have a great time together by rebuilding the pile and laughing endlessly!
Go Apple Picking
Fall is the perfect time for apple picking. Find a local orchard or farm and set off on an apple-filled adventure. Not only will you get to enjoy the beautiful scenery, but you can also be kind by helping others reach the apples that are hard to reach. Fill up your basket, and when you're finished, share some apples with a neighbor or a local shelter.
Host a Bonfire
Gather your friends and family for a cozy bonfire in your backyard. Toast marshmallows, sing songs, and share stories while enjoying the warmth of the fire. Spread kindness by creating a "compliment circle," where everyone takes turns saying something nice about the person next to them. Let the warmth of the fire inspire kindness in your hearts!
Enjoy a Hayride
Hop onto a wagon filled with hay and go on a delightful hayride through a beautiful countryside or a local farm. As you ride along, take the opportunity to spread kindness by complimenting the driver or helping others onto the wagon. Breathe in the fresh fall air, enjoy the gorgeous views, and create lasting memories with your loved ones.
Go to a Football Game
Fall is football season, and there's nothing quite like the excitement of watching a live game. Cheer for your favorite team, spread positivity by complimenting players from both teams, and don't forget to support the cheerleaders too. Share a smile with fellow fans, and if you see someone feeling down, offer them some words of encouragement. Kindness can be contagious, even in a stadium full of cheering fans!
Drink Hot Apple Cider
Warm up your soul on chilly fall days with a delicious cup of hot apple cider. Make a batch of cider at home or visit a local café that serves this seasonal treat. Share the warmth of kindness by surprising a friend or family member with a steaming cup of cider, and spend quality time together while enjoying the flavors of fall.
Wear Some Cozy Fuzzy Socks
Embrace the cozy feeling of fall by slipping into a pair of fuzzy socks. Let your imagination run wild and wear mismatched socks to show off your unique style. Take kindness to the next level by giving a pair of fuzzy socks to someone who could use some extra warmth and comfort.
Make Homemade Applesauce
Turn your apple-picking adventure into a delicious cooking experience. Gather fresh apples and turn them into homemade applesauce. Share this delightful treat with your family and friends, or bring a jar to a local nursing home or shelter to spread kindness and brighten someone's day with a taste of fall.
Put Together a Fall Playlist
Music has the power to uplift and inspire, so why not create a fall playlist filled with your favorite songs? Include tunes that remind you of the beauty of the season and spread kindness by sharing your playlist with friends and family. They might discover new songs to love and associate them with the memories you create together.
Go on a Fall Photo Scavenger Hunt
Grab your camera or smartphone and go on a fall-themed photo scavenger hunt. Look for colorful leaves, squirrels gathering acorns, or pumpkins adorning doorsteps. Share your pictures on social media with a kind message about the beauty of fall, and encourage others to explore the wonders of the season.
Host a Movie Night
On a cozy fall evening, invite your friends or family over for a movie night. Create a cozy atmosphere with blankets, pillows, and snacks like popcorn or caramel apples (we'll get to those soon!). Choose movies that celebrate kindness and inspire compassion, and make sure to discuss the messages of the films afterward. Movie nights are the perfect opportunity to bond and spread kindness through shared experiences.
Make Caramel Apples
Last but definitely not least, it's time to indulge in the sweet delight of caramel apples. Get creative by decorating your apples with various toppings like crushed nuts, chocolate chips, or sprinkles. Spread kindness by surprising someone with a homemade caramel apple or by hosting a caramel apple-making party where everyone can enjoy this scrumptious treat.
