The Ultimate Autumn Bucket List For All Ages

With the world feeling like it’s on fire right now, we don’t know what we can do. It feels like we’re going to be stuck without family. While that might be the case I think there are lots of fun things we can do to celebrate the season.

This is in the form of an Autumn bucket list.

You guys know how I love a good list! I decided to have a sit down and think of some things you could do. This could be at home or with your family out in the open. Don’t worry…I am still thinking of the Tier 3 people here in the UK!

Carve a pumpkin

We have to attempt to carve a pumpkin this year! There are so many things you can make, especially if you’re creative/artistic. If you can’t carve one then you can do the next best thing: paint on it! You don’t have to be great at any of these.

As long as you have fun as you do it, then that’s all that matters.

Buy a new sweater

We’re moving into the cooler months so we say goodbye to heatwaves and hello to eternal rain. That’s what it feels like right now! Haha! Something that I love wearing is a nice comfy sweater.

You can get all snug with a turtle neck or a camel cable-knit. See? I know some terminology! Doesn’t Autumn automatically make you think of curling up in a sweater with a blanket and a good book? It does for me! I’m not sure which one I’ll buy this year but I’d love any opinions!

Create a Halloween playlist

Something that I’ve gotten into this year with Spotify is creating playlists.

I have way too many to my name! I have one for helping me sleep, one for my childhood, one for songs my parents introduced me to and more. I don’t actually have one for Halloween since I don’t really like scary things. I still like the idea of getting songs that make me think of this time of year.

It wouldn’t be an Autumn bucket list without something about music in it!

Make a closet costume

This concept was introduced to me by my cosplayer friends. You get given a character and create their costume using whatever clothes you have.

You’re obviously not going to make the perfect costume. That’s not the point. It’s just making a costume that feels right to you. You could choose to do a human Casper or Beetlejuice! It’s just something a little different and a fun game to do with friends.

Buy a candle

Candles have always been a big thing through the decades. They give us light and now have some amazing scents connected with the seasons. I’ve always wished that the UK had better selection of candles for Autumn, but they do exist. You just have to look around for them.

Yankee Candle have some gorgeous scents for this time of year: Pumpkin Patch, Spiced Orange and Autumn Glow. Not sponsored but wouldn’t mind being! *wink*

Decorate your home

What are bloggers particularly known for?

Decorating their homes for pictures, of course! Okay, so that’s kind of what the world thinks we do and they’re not entirely wrong. Most of us do love to decorate a room in our home. I’ve brought a little bit of Autumn into my bedroom through a soft yellow blanket and season-inspired cushions. I can’t get into putting fake leaf garland around the place, but I do love a little something!

Attend a Zoom Halloween party

Since we can’t attend any Halloween parties right now, we can do the next best thing!

Have one over the internet!!

You can still get dressed into a costume, have some drinks and chat with friends. Plus you can do it all from the comfort of your own home. No need to go out in the freezing cold!

Jump in a pile of leaves

Hey, I did say this was an Autumn bucket list for all ages! We all have that inner child that loves crunching leaves and, if you have enough, you can make a massive pile!

I’ve never jumped into a pile before but it sounds like so much fun! I’d probably be finding leaves in my hair for days though. The trials of having long, curly hair. Haha!

Eat a candy apple

First off…ew.

Second…I only say ew because I’ve yet to find a candy apple that was nice. There’s just something about having something extra sweet over an apple. They’re sweet enough, people! I blame the fact that I had braces when I was younger and broke a wire.

Anyone who has had a broken wire or bracket will know my pain.

This all said, I may try and make my own. I’m only doing it because of one of my favourite animes. 100 kudos points to anyone who recognises this anime!

Dress up your pet

Let’s see how many owners can do this! It doesn’t matter if you have a cat or a dog either. If they’re happy for you to dress them, then go for it! They are so many adorable outfits you can buy these days.

Turn your dog into a vampire or even transform your cat into a pumpkin. These are basically our furry children so we have to have fun once/twice a year.

What costumes has your pet worn through the years?

What is on your Autumn bucket list this year?

      I’ve yet to make a pumpkin look like something! I’ve tried a cat, something spooky and Harry Potter. They always look extra funky by the end! xD

      That sounds so nice! You can’t go wrong with a blanket and candles for a cosy evening! Once it stops raining here, I’ll be kicking the leaves for sure!

      I love coming up with little things to keep my mind active and seasonal lists really help! You kind of have to swap things around for this year and hope that next Autumn we’ll be able to do more!
