The air is getting crisp in Northern California, and it’s finally feeling like Autumn. This of course prompted me to pull this big ol’ list of family fun for fall together. We made a similar family fall bucket list a few years ago. Furthermore, after trying so many fall activities with my kids over the years it seemed like a good time to update the original with more of our seasonal favorites.
Some of the items on this list are TinkerLab projects or projects from well-loved blogs. I’ll add links to those below. Most of all, if you like having a handy list for the fridge, you can download this list as a printable PDF (totally free). Scroll on down for that…
