Autumn Wish List

This is inspired by this post, but I don’t like the term “bucket list” for something like this. I have taken a lot of the ideas from there that I think the girls might like, and added some of my own as well. Often I think of things I want to do with the girls, and then as the season goes on and we get busy I forget and we never do end up doing some of them. Let’s see how many of these we can get through. I’ll likely add to it as I think of more too.


  1. Visit a pumpkin patch.
  2. Make a pumpkin pie from scratch.
  3. Paint and carve pumpkins.
  4. Go on a hayride.
  5. Make homemade candied apples.
  6. Do a leaf-rubbing project.
  7. Build a huge pile of leaves and jump in them.
  8. Visit an apple orchard.
  9. Bake a homemade apple pie.
  10. Visit a corn maze.
  11. Do some Autumn crafts
  12. Make homemade apple cider.
  13. Go geocaching at least once a week.
  14. Make our own butter.
  15. Create our own quilt squares.
  16. Listen to Autumn from The Four Seasons by Vivaldi
  17. Make a scarecrow.
  18. Learn why leaves change colours.
  19. Spend at least 30 minutes outside every day.
  20. Finish sewing our Christmas advent calendar before December.
  21. Pick five new things off this list to try and do them!

    this is a great idea! I should make a list too. I always do one for summer but should for every season and should put it on my blog too :)

  • Fantastic! I’ve tried to find an apple orchard in Victoria, but I think you’ll have better luck North of here. Does the SSI Apple Festival count? I looked at my “list of impossibles” that I made in March and, together with this post, am inspired to make a seasonal list as well as an annual one.

      There is Merridale Cidery right around the corner from us which is a fun apple orchard, complete with a fairy garden! You should come out and join us there one of these days, if we can ever actually connect.

“Since we can't know what knowledge will be most needed in the future, it is senseless to try to teach it in advance. Instead, we should try to turn out people who love learning so much and learn so well that they will be able to learn whatever needs to be learned.”
