Summer Bucket List

I don't think it's a secret that I love bucket lists. I've shared our Fall Bucket List here at My Sacred Sojourn. On my old blog, I shared how to make this cute bucket list wreath that you can adjust to fit any season or decor style and the Falling Leaf Autumn Bucket List.

Bucket lists are a great tool for the parent who wants to include fun and learning with intentionality. You can customize them to activities that your family loves and add in new things to try. They help me not get to the end of the season and think, "I meant to do that and forgot!" Instead of making a crafty version for summer, I decided to just make a printable version that I could share here.

This year, I divided the activities into three categories: Visit, Make, and Do. I'm listing them here, in case you have trouble reading the image above. When I make a bucket list, I try to include both indoor and outdoor activities to accommodate for weather changes, and activities that range in cost. 

In the back of my mind, I also have an idea of when I want to do these (some when grandparents come to visit, some when it's super hot outside, etc.) You could even put the specific things in your planner, if that helps!

VISIT:
  • The Zoo (take a picnic!)
  • Children’s museum
  • Art museum 
  • The library
  • The Splash Zone 
  • Farmer’s market  
  • Pick-your-own Farm 


MAKE:
  • Bubbles and bubble wands
  • Popsicles
  • Giant sand castle 
  • Jam or jelly
  • Pickles
  • Tie dye shirts
  • Fresh Lemonade
  • Solar powered oven (& a treat!)
  • Rainbow Craft

DO:
  • Go swimming
  • Fly a kite
  • Picnic at the park
  • Roast marshmallows in the fire pit
  • Send fun mail to loved ones
  • Luau party with leis and grass skirts
  • Miniature golf
  • Outdoor Tea Party
  • Bowling
  • Start a small garden 
  • Paint outside
  • Science experiments
  • Living room campout
  • Backyard tent camping
  • Go on a scavenger hunt
  • Nature walk
  • Find a fun ice cream shop
  • Try a new vegetable
  • Family movie night with themed treats 

I hope this summer you'll be intentional about how you play and interact with your kids!

Blessings, 
April
