If you’re like me and need some inspiration to enjoy autumn to its fullest, this autumn bucket list with 35 fall activity ideas to have fun with kids (or on your own) is here to help. Let’s enjoy this crisp and cosy time of the year and create memories together!

I find it quite challenging to find ideas to occupy the kids (and myself) in the autumn. It just feels all cold and dark and sad to me. Yes, you guessed correctly, I am not a great fan of the colder seasons…

But at some point lately it finally got to me. If I want autumn to be fun, I have to do something about it myself. There are such a plethora of things you can do, you just have to think of them. And doing activities together with the kids is always rewarding and eventually even I might enjoy autumn this way.

So, inspired by my summer bucket list, I decided to put together a bucket list of things to do with the kids in the autumn as well. Have a look and let’s make autumn a season filled with fun activities.
