Fall Bucket List for Christian Families who Don’t Celebrate Halloween

" As long as the earth remains, there will be planting and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night." Genesis 8:22 — NLT

Autumn is a beautiful time of year, full of crisp air, colorful leaves, and cozy sweaters. It's also a time for family traditions and fun activities. But if you're a Christian family who doesn't celebrate Halloween, you may be wondering what to do with your fall bucket list. It can be tough to find fall-themed activities that align with their values. But don't worry, there are plenty of fun and meaningful things you can do as a family during this season.

Here are some ideas for your fall bucket list:

  1. Go apple-picking: This is a classic fall activity that the whole family can enjoy. Find an apple orchard near you and spend the afternoon picking apples, playing games, and enjoying the beautiful scenery.
  2. Visit a pumpkin patch: Although you may not be carving pumpkins for Halloween, visiting a pumpkin patch is still a fun fall activity. You can use the pumpkins for decoration, baking, or even painting them with uplifting messages and Bible verses.
  3. Have a bonfire: Gather around a warm bonfire with your family and friends. You can roast marshmallows, make s'mores, and enjoy each other's company while sharing stories and testimonies.
  4. Have a fall festival at home. If you don't want to go out, you can have your own fall festival at home. Invite your friends and family over for food, games, and activities like pumpkin carving, face painting, and apple bobbing.
  5. Host a fall-themed game night: Invite some friends over for a fun game night with a fall twist. You can play games like "Fall Bingo" or "Name that Leaf" to get into the fall spirit.
  6. Bake fall treats. Fall is a great time to bake all of your favorite treats, like pumpkin pie, apple cider cookies, and cinnamon rolls. Get the whole family involved in the baking process and enjoy your delicious creations together.
  7. Visit a corn maze. Corn mazes are a fun fall activity for all ages. Get lost in the maze and try to find your way out. Many corn mazes also have other activities like pumpkin carving and hayrides.
  8. Volunteer in your community. There are many ways to volunteer in your community in the fall. You could help out at a soup kitchen, homeless shelter, or animal shelter. You can also organize a donation drive for items like warm clothes, blankets, or canned food.
  9. Watch faith-based movies: Gather your family and watch some faith-based movies that align with the fall season. Some great options are "God's Not Dead," "War Room," or "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood."
  10. Go to a football game. Football season is in full swing in the fall. Take the family to a high school, college, or professional football game
  11. Attend a fall festival. Many communities have fall festivals with food, games, and activities for all ages. Check your local calendar to find a fall festival near you.

Let's Reflect

There are plenty of fun and meaningful things you can do as a family during the fall season, even if you don't celebrate Halloween. Use this time to connect with your loved ones, appreciate nature, and give thanks to God for all His blessings.
