Make a Summer Bucket List with your Kids | Craft + 15 Ideas for your List

Make a Summer Bucket List with your Kids | Craft + Ideas

Bug and I sat down and made a list of things we wanted to do this summer. And then we made a visual reminder of our goals!

Here’s our Summer Bucket List!


I used this bucket image and printed it off on colored paper and cut them out.

Don’t know what to put on your list? Here are 15 ideas:

  1. Pack a picnic and take it to a scenic spot (or just the local park!)
  2. Set up a campsite in your back yard.  Sleeping bags, tents if you have them, watch the stars and roast marshmallows over a fire (or the grill, or a candle, LOL).  Even if you don’t sleep out the whole night, it will still be fun!
  3. Zoo or Aquarium
  4. Museums (Art, History or Science – we are fortunate to live near all three!)
  5. A trip to the Splash Pad (or make your own “splash pad” at home)
  6. Paint (my son loves to paint – so promising him a whole day where can have access to all his paints and the kitchen table ALL DAY to “create” is a big deal to him)
  7. Go to a drive in movie
  8. Have a special movie night at home.
  9. Bake cookies
  10. Visit the fire station (bonus points for taking them fresh baked cookies!)
  11. Visit a Farmer’s Market
  12. Go to a U-pick farm.
  13. Visit historical sites or landmarks in your own hometown!
  14. Go Bowling (check out Kids Bowl Free for free games in the summer!)
  15. Find a FREE factory tour!  (I live near Blue Bell, Golden Flake and Bud’s Best cookies and they all offer FREE tours – YUM!)

What would you put on your summer bucket list?
