Ready or not, summer is only a few weeks away! I wanted to start posting some ideas to help us not only survive, but enjoy summer with our kids home from school. And my single best idea of last summer was our family’s Summer Bucket List. Because it was so successful, we are doing it again this year.
We sat down as a family and brainstormed all of the things we wanted to do this summer. Everything from a snow cone across the street to a week long family Scout camp. Everyone wrote down their ideas on a posterboard. We had some repeats from last summer and some new frontiers.
I plan to hang this year’s list right in the kitchen to remind us and motivate us. Last year we were all determined to complete as much as we could. Some days when we had a free afternoon, we would look at our bucket list and get an idea of what to do. Then of course, after the activity, we had to cross it off.
As you can see, we had so much fun last summer (and into the fall) and did almost everything we wanted to. We plan to have the same fun (and motivation) this summer. What will be on your family’s summer bucket list?
