Animal Crossing New Horizons 2.0 Daily Checklist

When you log in for the day, there are quite a few things you will need to do to ensure you are optimizing your Animal Crossing experience; there's quite a long list after the update, which you can find below!

  • Dig up island fossils.
  • Dig up your gyroid.

2.0 Kappn

After you finish up the checklist for your island, it’s time to see Kapp’n and go to your daily island. Once there, make sure to dig up your gyroid and plant them when you get back. Once you water your new gyros, you can head to Harv’s island:

  • Pay off any remaining shop sites.
  • Get a reading from Katrina.
  • Get your daily haircut from Harriet.
  • Buy the legitimate art piece from Redd.
  • Check Kick and Sahara’s shops for new items.

If it’s Sunday, you will want to add in buying turnips from Daisy May. You may also have extra tasks like depositing a daily bell amount towards bridges; simply work these in as you are searching for fossil spots around your island.

Happy Home Paradise Daily Checklist Add-Ons

If you have the Happy Home Paradise add-on, then you are going to have a few more tasks you will want to complete.

  • Check to see which villagers want vacation homes.
  • Check Poki shops for new items.

Luckily, Happy Home Paradise isn’t really time-gated like some of the other content, so only these two things really change with the daily reset.
