Things to do in autumn

autumn to do listAutumn is my all time favourite season and because we don’t really have Autumn here in Queensland I make a special effort to either go home during Autumn or to drive inland (and south) to enjoy the season.

As a welcome to Autumn, I’ve created a list of things to do for the season. This list includes both things that need doing around the house as well as fun stuff to do during Autumn.

Because it’s not too hot and not too cold (and not over pollinated with hay fever inducing flowers), Autumn is a great time of the year to enjoy the great outdoors. Bushwalking and picnics are great at this time of the year.

And of course, it’s Easter (at least here in the Southern Hemisphere), so a great time to have an Easter egg hunt or make your own Easter chocolates along with apple pies and pumpkin soup.

Back home, my mother mentioned that their council is running a free Autumn festival over the next couple of months, so I’m looking forward to participating in that when we get back there. Why not check out your council to find out what’s on in your local area this month?

Back to the Autumn to do list. I’ve been working lately at honing my skills in creating graphics and PDFs, so as practice I created this downloadable to-do list for Autumn (and a few others coming up).

I’m not normally one for fancy stuff, but I’ve also been working on our household folder and I thought about putting a seasonal to do list in the calendar section as a fun reminder to do the things that need to be done and get out and enjoy what each season has to offer.

Let me know what you think and if the downloadables are useful.

You can download the Autumn to-do list here (PDF) or a more print friendly version (without the background) here.

      You’re right, my favourite too, especially around May – perfect weather. but I do miss the blustery and colourful Autumn of down south too. I love colours of Autumn and the leaves.
