Fall Fun Checklist

At the start of Summer vacation, I made this Summer Fun checklist and it was a big hit.  It gave the kids something to be excited about and it gave us inspiration when we had nothing to do.  Although we don't have nearly the amount of free time now that school and sports have started, there's still a bunch of fall-themed activities we could put on a Fall Fun checklist.



Just as with the Summer list, I simply wrote down a list of ideas on some patterned paper, added a few embellishments, and put it in a frame.  We'll use a dry erase marker to check off the fun things we do throughout the Fall season.

Here's our list (some are fall-related, others are just fun things we can do over the next few months)

It's not as long as our Summer list, but the kids were still excited to see it.

  8. Laura,

    Your Fall Checklist is so adorable. I love the way you have it displayed too. Using a dry-erase marker is a smart idea, that way you can use again next year. I'll have to make one for my family. Thanks for sharing.

    I host a link party, "Sundae Shake Up", and would love for you to stop by and share this with my girls. I'll bet they'd like to see this creative idea too.

  14. I found your post through the Sunday Showcase. I love your list and the way you presented it! I posted my fall list as well. We have a few of the same things. I would have definitely added the football game to mine, had I seen this earlier. My little boy is playing soccer, but all of a sudden has a fascination with football. He would love that. We'll have to do it anyways. :) Thank you for sharing.

  17. That is such a great idea. Much easier to go to the list and pick something then try and think something up spur of the moment. Visiting from Momma's Kinda Crafty.

  21. Those are pretty good ideas - and I have to agree 100%. Fun vacations don't necessarily have to be expensive and require a lot of traveling. Just hopping out the door to the backyard can be as much fun as any trip.
