30+ [NON-SCARY] Fall Family Bucket List Ideas

Feel Free To Share - Thanks! ❤️

Do you love spending quality time together as a family? We sure do! With fall being our favorite season, I wanted to incorporate some fun ideas to add to our to-do list!

Here are 30+ (non-scary!) fall family bucket list ideas you can start doing this year!

Fall Family Bucket List Ideas

It was important for me to incorporate NON-scary ideas on this list, and make the focus on your family and really just connecting, laughing, and enjoying the time God has given you.

I will admit, when I was younger I was at EVERY haunted house every weekend. It was a fall tradition for me and my friends!

However, now after being married and having kids, I LOVE finding things we can do together as a family to really incorporate all things fall AND a spirit of thankfulness.

The great thing about this list is it can either spark new family traditions or put a twist on something that is normally “fall” like.

For example, carving pumpkins or painting pumpkins is something a LOT of us already do right?

Well, you can add this really fun and unique Pumpkin Prayer activity to your pumpkin carving, pointing everything back towards Christ.

For the painting, you can have a pumpkin painting contest! Post a picture of each of your pumpkins on social media and ask people to vote! Then everyone can go out for ice cream after. 😉

See the cool twists you can add? Are you excited yet?!

Let’s get right into it then…
