I have talked about Bucket Lists before but this is a fun twist on it that you can make with the littles to help them take ownership of it all. Wooden Craft Sticks and some simple supplies from the Dollar Store transform into a Fall Bucket List of activities sure to keep your family busy!
Dollar Store Craft Stick Fall Bucket List
- Wooden Craft Sticks – Dollar Store
- Metal Bucket – Dollar Store
- Ribbon, Brown – Dollar Store
- Paper Shred, Kraft – Dollar Store
- Washable Markers – Dollar Store
- Craft Paint – Variety of Fall Colors
- Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Shipping Tag – White
- Permanent Marker – Black
Base coat twelve wooden craft sticks with a variety of Fall inspired colors. Let dry and the apply a second coat, if necessary. Because these sticks will be seen from both sides, flip over and paint the backs of the craft sticks.
Using a pencil and then a permanent black marker, write an activity on each of the twelve craft sticks. Get the kiddos involved to create your list! You can also use the back of each craft stick to add more activities.
Here is a detailed photo of all twelve Fall Bucket List activites.
Measure and cut a length of brown ribbon to wrap around the circumference of the metal bucket, and then attach with glue.
Using the orange and yellow washable markers, create a plaid pattern on the white shipping tag by drawing grids. Write FALL BUCKET LIST on the tag with a permanent black marker. Cut an 8-inch length of brown ribbon, loop through shipping tag and tie to the handle of the metal bucket.
Add the kraft paper shred to the bucket and then insert the list craft sticks. Remove each stick as the family completes the activity. Add dates to the craft sticks and incorporate them into journal entries or scrapbook pages for added fun!
Create this Fall Bucket List in just about 30 minutes with coloring, painting and printing help from the kiddos!
