How to Make a Craft Stick Fall Bucket List

Start by adding a basecoat to twelve wooden craft sticks with a variety of Fall inspired colors.  Let dry and 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.

Next, Using a pencil and then a permanent black marker, write a Fall Bucket List 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 activities:

Measure and cut a length of brown ribbon to wrap around the circumference of the metal bucket, and then attach it 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 the shipping tag, and tie to the handle of the metal bucket.

Add the kraft paper shred to the bucket and then insert the Fall Bucket 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!
