10 Simple And Festive Activities To Celebrate Fall

THE MINI APARTMENT fall activities 2019I love when Fall comes around – but rarely do I feel like we have time to do all the fall activities that we want to do! This year, I thought it would be a better idea to make a simpler “bucket list” of fall activities. This list is full of fun and festive ideas to do during fall that are either free or cost next to nothing! You can do all of these activities with little prep, and on any day of the week.

This simple bucket list for fall includes seasonal activities to do no matter where you live!
