Toddler Autumn Bucket List

The kids are back at school, a chill is in the air, leaves are on the floor and I’m craving warm soups-it can only mean one thing AUTUMN IS HERE. I love autumn, its my favorite season. The yellow and orange leaves, the comfort of a warm coat, the tang of apples and berry’s, its all so soft and comforting after the intensity of the summer haze.

In order to share my love of this season, with my daughter, I have created the below list to show her all the joy that comes with the autumn. As usual this list keeps to my KISS code of KEEPING IT SIMPLE STUPID, and should not require too much planning or money.

  1. Go blackberry/apple picking
  2. Bake a recipe using fresh picked fruit
  3. Jump in piles of leaves
  4. Jump in puddles
  5. Read books about Autumn (below is a few I picked up at library yesterday)thumbnail_file-5
