The Ultimate Family Bucket List Ideas for Fall Printable

It’s so easy to get caught up in the busyness of school and sports practices, that we miss the opportunity to play. Discover some family fun with these bucket list ideas for fall!

PARTY TIME

We tease my mom because she can find a reason to celebrate anything. No matter how big or small, she always has a backup set of party napkins to throw on the table so she can call it a party.

I remember her lighting candles at dinnertime once a week and turning off the lights just so she could call it fancy.

She would make popcorn and tell us all to get a blanket and pillows. That way we could watch a movie in the dark because it made movie night scarier.

Blankets became forts and flashlights became storytelling time.

As much as we tease her for making a big plan out of something as simple as running an errand, the creativity she modeled for us as children are some of our favorite things to pass on as parents.

FINDING TIME FOR FUN

It’s so easy to get caught up in the busyness of school starting and sports practices and fundraisers and finishing homework, that we miss the opportunity to play. But if you don’t schedule it into your week, it may get missed, and play is when most of us come alive. Play is when we find connection, relax, lower our stress levels, and discover our passions.

For the next three months, commit to doing a few of your favorites off these Bucket List Ideas for Fall. Don’t make this something else to complete or stress about, use it as a reference. Check them off as you do them or check off the ones that sound fun to your family.

Teach Your Kids the Fruit of the Spirit with this Printable Study

Teach your kids the fruit of the spirit from Galatians 5:22-23 with this printable 10 week workbook.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY “THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT”?

One of the best pieces of advice I was given from a seasoned parent was to make the Fruit of the Spirit our family rules. At the time, I knew the phrase but didn’t remember what they were or where to find them in the Bible.

My husband and I helped teach a kindergarten class one summer and we learned the Fruit of the Spirit song. I loved the simplicity and ease of teaching a complex subject like the Holy Spirit when I applied the verse of Galatians 5:22-23 to my family:

“For the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” 

Galatians 5:22-23

I even included it in my Family Goals Poster I created years ago. But to simply tell children (especially little children) to be these things is not enough. We have to model these behaviors and teach our kids what it looks like to be kind, faithful, good, gentle and to practice self-control.

MODELING GALATIANS 5:22-23

Here are a few examples you can use to model the Fruit of the Spirit to your children:

  • LOVE: the next time you celebrate a birthday in your family, explain why you honor that person
  • JOY: model how to make the best of a bad situation by pointing out what you are thankful for
  • PEACE: try not to raise your voice with your spouse in front of the kids, showing that you can disagree and still be kind
  • PATIENCE: when you are stuck in traffic, be aware of how you’re acting about it in front of the kids
  • KINDNESS: next time you see a homeless person offer to pray with them, give them food or money
  • GOODNESS: be honest with your kids about something you struggle with, but tell them that you choose to do the right thing because it’s the right thing to do
  • FAITHFULNESS: tell your kids about a time it was hard to trust God and why you did anyway, then pray together
  • GENTLENESS: it’s hard not to yell when your kids are disobeying, but it gets a better result when you speak calmly the next time they get angry
  • SELF-CONTROL: point out to your kids that you really want all the cookies in the box, but you only have two for dessert because it’s not healthy for your body to eat lots of junk food

FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT WORKBOOK FOR KIDS

I’ve created a 10 week workbook for kids on the Fruit of the Spirit that you can use at home! The product is a digital download, so you can buy once, and print a workbook for each of your children! The best way to use these are to put the pages in a 3 ring binder, in a folder or simply staple them all together.

The first week introduces all the Fruits of the Spirit with a:

  • Galatians 5:22-23 coloring page
  • Cover page for your child’s name
  • Tree and fruit of the spirit cut and glue page

Each of the following weeks teaches one Fruit of the Spirit with a:

  • Memory verse page with visuals and activities for memorizing the scripture
  • Choice board with 6 activities to practice that week’s skill
  • Bible story lesson with drawing and writing page
  • Journal prompt for reflecting on how they applied that skill during the week

The Ultimate Family Summer Bucket List Printable

The Ultimate Family Summer Bucket List is ready for you to print! On a budget? Summer is the perfect time to find free stuff to do outdoors!

SUMMERTIME, SUMMERTIME, SUMM-SUMM-SUMM-SUMMERTIME…

I had a neighbor when I was young that my brother and I hung out with from dawn to dusk every day in the summer. We lived in a suburb outside of DC and enjoyed snow in the winter and changing leaves in the autumn. But summertime…summertime was our time. It was when we ruled the neighborhood.

As the oldest in the group, I headed up “field trips” to the community pool, and we created our own “Summertime Kids’ Club” complete with dues and a newsletter.

We lived in a neighborhood where you could shoot fireworks in the front yard on the Fourth of July and catch lightning bugs in the backyard. So as a mom, I can’t help but want to bring a little bit of that magic back to my own children’s summers.

Summertime is unique in that you don’t have to find as much time to squeeze family activities in. More times than not, most parents are desperate to find something to fill the time they have while the kids are home for summer.

While there is value in teaching kids that it’s ok to be bored, find ways to spend time together and create those fun family memories you’ve always wanted.

So print your Summer Bucket List today and start making memories to last a lifetime!
