The List!

In case you are interested in doing your own fall list, here are some examples from ours! We have some family trips planned, too, but these are the activities that I hope to accomplish in our family. What I love about these lists is that they provide opportunities for our family to grow together. The activities don't have to be complicated or over-thought--the joy of being together is usually found in the simple things, anyway. Just something to keep in mind. :)

Here you go!

-Jump in a leaf pile
-Make s'mores in the fireplace
-Build a bonfire
-Visit a local pumpkin patch
-Make homemade caramel apples
-Celebrate Thanksgiving with G-Ma and Papa
-Handprint turkey craft (pretty self-explanatory)
-Thankful Tree (starting November 1st)
-Performing a random act of kindness
-Trunk or Treat (church activity on Halloween)
       *Quick note: The boxes are due the week of November 18-25, hence, they are part of our fall list! Also, if you haven't done these with your kids before, I encourage you to do it this year. Here is an awesome video you can watch to see the kind of impact your shoebox can make (if you have a pulse, it will make you cry).

There you have it! I hope this list is a helpful one. 

Have a lovely day!
