HOW TO CREATE GREAT MEMORIES THIS FALL
I love this time of year and I love all the festive activities there are to do that get us to celebrate together. I love to hang up our October bucket list in the kitchen so we can remember the fun things we want to do together. If we don’t get through all of them, that’s okay!
HOW TO CREATE A FAMILY-FRIENDLY BUCKET LIST
- Brainstorm a list of all the fall/Halloween themed activities you want to do this year. Do this as family and involve your children!
- Next, write your list on a giant chalkboard (like this one ) or make your own Halloween countdown.
- We’ve used ghost cut-outs, leaf cut-outs, pumpkin cut-outs before to make it more seasonal.
- Your bucket list doesn’t have to be anything fancy, but make sure you hang it in a place that you can see often.
Pick your favorite Halloween activities and save the rest for another year! Remember, there is no pressure to stress ourselves out when it comes to celebrating. Do the activities that will help your family create memories, simply. That’s what we’re all about here!
