It is almost fall y’all!! I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love the fall time, give me all the pumpkin everything! There are so many fun activities to do in the fall time, and I always feel like I miss out on at least one of the things I wanted to do! So I created this fall bucket list and wanted to share it with you all. Here are 28 fall bucket list ideas, all COVID safe too!
28 Fall Bucket List Ideas
1. Drink Apple Cider
Apple cider is an essential fall bucket list item! It always tastes so good, and you can drink it hot, cold, or with alcohol!
2. Visit a Pumpkin Patch
Can you think of anything more fall-y than visiting a pumpkin patch?! Visit your local pumpkin patch and pick up a few pumpkins (and also take a million and one cute photos there!)
3. Watch Football
It is officially football season y’all!! What better way to spend a Saturday or Sunday than watching a football game. You could even invite a few friends over and tailgate at home because tailgate food = the best food.
4. Have a Movie Night
There is something about fall that makes you want to cuddle up in front of the TV with a big cup of hot cocoa and marshmallows! Find some fun fall movies to watch and have yourself a movie night. I also recommend Harry Potter, I don’t know why but it just screams fall to me!
5. Burn Fall Candles
Fall candles honestly smell the BEST! Home Goods has so many amazing fall candles, their Scentsational brand smells uh-mazing. I especially love the white pumpkin scent.
6. Decorate For Fall
Decorating for fall is honestly almost as much fun as Christmas decorating! There are so many fun things you can do and ways you can really make your entire home feel like fall.
7. Bake a Pie
Who doesn’t love pie? Fall is the perfect time to make pie, and I am sure it was already on your fall bucket list! This goes perfectly with fall bucket list item #8.
8. Go Apple Picking
Apple picking is so much fun! You could use the apples you pick to make a pie, make caramel apples, or apple pie.
9. Carve Pumpkins
Carving pumpkins is such a fun fall/halloween activity. Have some fun carving pumpkins and then add them to your fall decor.

16. Jump In a Pile of Leaves
Let out your inner child and jump in a pile of leaves! The sound of leaves crunching is so satisfying.
