As we creep further into the fall season, many of us who are newer families are yearning to start fun traditions with our children that will leave a lasting impression on them into adulthood. What better way to do this than by starting a fall tradition bucket list?
Every season, new and old families rack their brains trying to come up with unique ideas of fresh activities to stimulate their children, as well as have good old family fun! Whether you choose to hunker down indoors and enjoy a movie night every year, or trek off to your local pumpkin patch, you are implanting a tradition in your child, and hopefully they will want to continue it with their own family far down the road. Here are our favorite 15 things to do during the autumn months; a fall themed bucket list!
1. Go on a hayride.
2. Go to a football game (high school, college, or professional!)
3. Go to a corn or hay maze.
