Fall Toddler Bucket List (FREE PRINTABLE)
Fall is around the corner, and I have been busy creating a Fall Toddler Bucket List full of things to do with your 1-3 year old! Plus, I’ve included a free printable, so you can print a copy and check off the things as you do them! There are plenty of ideas to fill all of the cool fall days.
I know, I know – we’re still in the stifling heat of summer. In fact, we’re still finishing up our summer bucket list. How can I be talking about fall and a fall toddler bucket list already??
Believe it or not, fall is right around the corner. In fact, our local apple orchard is open and they’ve got fresh-from-the-tree apples in the store. We’ve got a bag of them on our counter. And I bought pumpkin yogurt at the store. And Starbucks released their fall pumpkin drinks. Hello, fall.
Camden is 1 1/2 years old, so he’s old enough to get out of the house and really do some fun stuff. I’ve been putting together a list in my head of all the fun fall toddler bucket list things we can do together, and now I’m writing it down for you! Plus I’ve included a free printable, so you can check the items off your own list – and there’s a few lines for you to add your own ideas as well!
Our Fall Toddler Bucket List:
- Visit the apple orchard and pick apples – Apple orchards usually have a bunch of different activities other than just apple piking as well!
- Go to a corn maze – last year, we just put Camden in a jogging stroller and did the corn maze with him!
- Find hay bales to climb on and play on – (wear old clothes; the hay pokes holes!); check your apple orchards and pumpkin patches for these!
- Go to the pumpkin patch and pick out pumpkins – this is such a fun tradition to create with toddlers. Older toddlers can learn how to find a good pumpkin and about the different colors, styles, etc.
- Decorate pumpkins together – young toddlers are not ready for cutting pumpkins, but they can help design a face for you to cut. Or you can use paint or stickers to let them go crazy. Target also has some cute character craft kits this year, too!
- Go to a football game (high school football, probably) – If you love football like my husband and I, introducing your toddler to football is a fun experience. I recommend going to an early high school football game, and only staying for part of it. Make sure you cheer a lot, because the more excited you get about it, the more excited he’ll be.
- Ride a train – train riding is good for any time of year, but riding a train and looking at the fall colors is just glorious. And a toddler is always happy to ride a train!
- Collect leaves and do a project with them – you can do some leaf rubbings, leaf tracings, or leaf laminating projects! Happy fall!
- Rake leaves and play with the piles – self explanatory. What’s better than a good leaf crunching?
- Make a fall-themed sensory bin – I’ve got plans to do a harvest themed bin, a corn-kernel bin, and any other fun ones I can think of!
- Have a fall outdoor picnic – cool weather, sweaters, and delicious food!
- Try apple stamping.
- Go hiking and see the fall colors and leaves – Let your toddler touch the trees and pick up the leaves and explore! Find a nature play area if you can!
- Go on a hayrack ride.
- Host a fall party or playdate together – Host a playdate with a couple of your toddler’s friends, and do a leaf craft or some apple stamping!
- Visit a sunflower farm.
- Attend a fall festival – all the fall activities packed into one place for you.
- Try apple cider and apple cider donuts – yummy!
- Take a fall family bike ride – put your toddler in the bike cart and make sure he’s got some snacks!
- Put together a family Halloween costume – last year we did Harry Potter. We’ve got a fun idea for this year too!
- Go to a Trunk or Treat.
- Make a felt pumpkin Jack O’Lantern for playing with – stay tuned for a how-to post coming up on this one!
- Visit the farm and pet the animals.
- Watch the tractors harvest (and ride in one if you can!)
- Take a walk with homemade hot chocolate.
