Our Summer Bucket List

Hooray for summer! Here’s a list I put together of some things we want to do before summer is over. I asked everyone in the family to give ideas.

Go to the beach

Make a sandcastle

Swim in a creek, river, lake, and pool

Picnic at the park

Make smoothies

Make homemade popsicles (with the molds I just picked up from Freecycle!)

Plant some veggies and herbs with the kids

Library time, with special events and the Summer Reading Club

Make summer journals

Lots of grilling: burgers, hot dogs, chicken, veggies, pizza…

Run through the sprinkler

Declutter something every week (How did this get in here?!)

Make s’mores

Go on a road trip

Spend time with family and friends

Make a summer activity jar

Visit a museum, farm, and/or zoo

Participate in Vacation Bible School

Go fishing

Go to the farmer’s market

Make lemonade

Go to a free concert in the park

Stay on top of free family events around town

What are some activities you are planning for the summer?

  1. Now that looks like a fun and busy summer!

    What is a summer journal? Is that an ongoing project or something you do a the end of the summer?

      The journals would be ongoing, although I haven’t started them yet! I’m thinking Ella(8) and Gabe(6) can write and draw about summer activities and current interests, and Anna(2) can just draw/scribble. I should get a new journal going myself!

  2. That is a good list! We’ve done several of those things already! Have fun!

      Thanks, Sherry! I’m surprised at how quickly we are working our way through the list. We made smoothie popsicles today! Have a great summer!
