Read on to find out how I am using these Summer Bucket List Ideas (with over 100 things to do with your family this summer), plus Summer Bucket List Template, to make this summer memorable for my kids!
The “official” school year just wrapped up for my kiddos and thank goodness, because their homeschool teacher (aka: me) was turning into a real bag! Juggling the demands of homeschooling has proven to be difficult for me, and I am more thankful than ever for teachers! They are truly saints!
But, with the school year wrapping up, I am looking forward to enjoying summer with my kids. While we have been spending A LOT of time together the last few months, it will be nice to be able to focus on having fun and doing summer activities together WITHOUT all the stresses that has come along with homeschooling.
The truth of the matter is, summer is going to look quite a bit different for most of us this year. Thanks to COVID-19, many events, summer camps, concerts, fairs, festivals, waterparks, etc. are going to be closed or cancelled this year. That means getting creative with activities that will keep your kiddos busy over the summer months!
Now is a good time to come up with a bucket list of activities that you want to do with your kids over the summer. They don’t have to be big or extravagant. In fact, this summer, more than ever, we have the opportunity to get back to the basics and let our kids enjoy the little things that make summer….well, summer!
I have come up with a set of FREE Summer Bucket List Printables to help you get started on your summer bucket list planning. The first thing in the printable is a list of over 100 Summer Bucket List Ideas. Everything from catching fireflies, roasting marshmallows, picking berries, planting flowers, going to the beach, to taking a hike, plus many more.
You can sit down with your whole family and read over this list to see what activities you would most like to put on your bucket this summer (and, of course, come up with some of your own if you want!).
You can then print the blank Summer Bucket List page to fill in your family’s own customized Summer Bucket List! Then, hang it on your fridge and check items off your list all summer long!
