I consider Labor Day to be the end of summer, even though the autumnal equinox is not until September 22. Hooligans go off to school, there’s a bit of crispness in the air, and I’ve even seen quite a few trees flaunting their fall colors. And I swap out my summer décor for fall…it’s my favorite time of year! Until winter gets here, that is.
This year, via Pinterest, I’ve seen several “Fall Bucket Lists” and thought, “Now there’s a wonderful idea!” I found several free downloads, but my favorite can be found at the Funky Polka Dot Giraffe. I liked it because there’s a complete one, or one with just the graphics and you can fill in the blanks yourself. I designed one, relying heavily on her creativity, and here’s what I ended up with, after adding our own favorites:
Please ignore that the majority of these activities involve cooking and eating. That’s just how we operate here at Chaos de Chaos. I printed this, framed it, and put it in place of one of my monthly calendars on our 3-month calendar (from my post in July).
Then I thought, “How cute would this be as an invitation to a s’mores campfire?” Pretty darned cute, is the answer. I resized them to be four to a page, printed them, and adhered them to standard 4-1/2” x 5-1/2” cards. Here’s what that looks like, and a link to print them for yourself.
I’m so excited to start checking things off this list…but I guess I’ll wait until the weekend at least, so the whole family can join in the fun! I’m such a good mom.
