Family fall bucketlist


     Making list is always at the top of my list... (see what I did there?). And before you ask, yes i am one of those people that like to write stuff down just so they have something to check off...

      Since having kids, but especially since Nalia is old enough to truly grasp the magic of every season, I've wanted to create more memories together and teach her as much as possible through play. I've been struggling to connect with her in various activities. Lately the only place we see eye to eye is sharing crayons and a colouring book... Or in the kitchen, in the few minutes she wants to 'help out' before she decides she's bored and leaves me hanging with a few extra messes to clean up. I  wish to make things as much fun as possible for her and sometimes I'm afraid I am not doing a very good job at that...  Especially now that my hands are full with our little one and Nalia's entire world is upside down, I want to be able to give her more quality in our time spent together.

     Enter the Fall Bucket List!

     I've seen several of these going around social media and I thought what a nice motivator to put on our happy faces for once and focus on creating something together as a family. It sure feels good checking things off the list and it will feel even better to have all these nice memories stored away...

     Here's some points we chose together and hope to accomplish as much as we can:

* gather rocks and paint them to form different stories
* visit an indoor playground
* have meatballs and mashed potatoes at IKEA
* make arts and crafts using dry leaves
* make soup
* cook something with pumpkin

* bring out our winter closet
* visit an art centre
* bake apple pie
* go to the Englischer Garten
* register for Ski lessons
* play board games
* get (fake) tattoos
* have a picnic
* host a Friendsgiving

* go to a library and have Nalia choose a book
