In my humble opinion bucket lists are great way to make the most of a new season. And if you’re anything like me, you’ve been eagerly waiting for fall to arrive – those crisp days, all things pumpkin and apple, warm bowls of chili, and spending time together outdoors. What could be better than putting all your favorite fall activities onto one big list?!?
A few months ago I made a giant summer bucket list for our family to check off all sorts of fun summer activities – my kids loved it (and so did I!). As summer began to wind down, I knew that I had to make one for Fall as well. I have included a link to download my list, but you are welcome to make one of your own to print as well! I included a wide range of things on my list to take us from September until the end of November. That’s 3 months to check off 30 items! Some of the items will take a little prep or creativity (like baking pumpkin bread or making leaf art) and others are things you’ll probably do anyways (like eat chili and visit a pumpkin patch).

How to print a giant bucket list
Possibly the coolest part about these bucket lists is that they are HUGE! And the icing on the cake is that they are pretty inexpensive to pint (under $8 for the largest size). The secret is to use an engineering print/blueprint service. Here’s how to make one:
Where to order
I personally like to use Staples to have mine printed, this allows me to order it online and pick it up in store. You could also use places like OfficeMax, FedEx Kinkos, or probably a few local print shops too. Prices will range based on which company you use.
How to order
First you’ll need to select the size you’d like printed. We used the 36 x 48 size for our huge summer bucket list, and the 24 x 36 is a little smaller. Keep in mind that these are BIG – 36 inches is 3 feet, so that’s taller than my 2 year old! Then select Black & White, as most places will not print full color blue prints in store.
Next you’ll need to add your file. I’ve had great results using a pdf file on the Staples website. You can use the link above to download the pdf I made and then upload it right to their website.
Now you can select your orientation, landscape or portrait (if you’re printing my file select portrait). You’ll also need to name your project – I keep it simple with just “Fall Bucket List”. Before you add to cart you can change the quantity or size of the print. Once you have all the details completed, just add to cart, purchase and select “pick up in store”. When it’s ready you just pick it up and you’re ready to start checking off those fall bucket list items!
If you print one of our lists we’d love to see it in action! Freshly printed, as your checking off activities or even when its all complete. Tag us on Instagram (@eastvalleymomsblog) so we can check it out!
