Each season we try to come up with some ideas for a ‘Bucket List’, or things we want to do. Life has been crazy and we didn’t create a winter one but we got to do some amazing things (like visit the North Pole to meet Santa!), regardless of a list. I find that having a list helps motivate me to get up and actually do, but that’s just me!
Here’s an example of a Summer Bucket. Ours is usually more specific (Pizza Party would be more specific, right now the kids are obsessed with that pizza mouse) but the beauty of a bucket list is that it can be adjusted to fit your family. Getting the kids involved in coming up with ideas is half the fun; so make sure to ask them, too!
Last year we wrote our list on a poster board and color coded it. Green for free (or at home) activities, Yellow for moderately expensive and Red for things that need a little extra planning and saving for. Often I would let them pick what to do and told them the color they could pick from.
Last summer we did a TON of stuff (check out the post where I share how to keep kids busy without breaking the bank), this year we have a simpler bucket list that we’re using as a guideline…I am hoping to add more to it!
Here’s the FREE PRINTABLE to our simple Summer Bucket List.
