Every summer we come up with a summer bucket list. It makes summer exciting and gives the kids some ideas for times they are bored. We take a piece of poster paper, write out a list and decorate it. As we finish each item, we cross it off, with a goal to finish by summer’s end!

I have to admit I can’t wait for summer to come around – I definitely want to head off to a beach as well.
I’m loving all these ideas. I can’t wait for summer. I’m already sick of winter. I want warmer weather.
That is a great list of activities for the kids for the summer. When my kids were little (we had 10) there always seemed to be something to do since we lived in Louisiana. But some of your ideas I had never thought of.
Wow! These are all really great and amazing ideas for kids! My kids would love to see this list!
When the kids were small we would do a few of these with them. My favorite thing to do with our grandkids each summer used to be was take them to the Zoo. One summer we did 3 different Zoos in one summer. lol.
Ooh a drive in movie. It’s been awhile since I’ve been to one of those. There’s one the next county over.
We are already tired of winter here. Well, I’m not, but my husband sure is. I’m ready for this summer bucket list.
that is a fun summer activities list!!
These are so cute and look tasty too.
That’s a great list of fun things to do. We always go somewhere during the summer. Dunno yet where we’re going this year, though. 🙂
Great list. Summer is my most fave season and I can’t wait to do these activities with my fam 😍
Summer is fast approaching here in the Philippines and it’s really getting hot here. And I will need to save this list so I won’t ran out of ideas.
It’s always great to get some fresh ideas for summer! It will be summer before we know it 😀
