Make the most of your summer vacation while the kids are home from school. This free printable summer bucket list is a cute way to plan out the things you want to do this summer.
My kids enjoy school most of the time, but gosh, they really look forward to summer vacation too. Rules keep us in check most of the year. But summer, ah… time to bend the rules and stretch our limits. I like summer vacation too, but I’m a bit of a worker bee.
Having the kids home with me will often “force” me to take a break and enjoy myself. Terrible, I know. It doesn’t take much for summertime relaxation to lead to a little craziness. So to create some organized chaos, we are making a summer bucket list.
Summer bucket list basics
I started by making a list of the typical kid things that I remember doing as a kid. Many of them, my own two have never done. Right now it is short, but growing.
- ride a bike
- jump on a trampoline
- memorize your phone number
- do a cartwheel
- camp in the backyard
- climb a tree
- chase fireflies
Then, I asked the kids what they wanted to do. It was mostly things we have done before that they really enjoyed.
- Go to the zoo
- Walk to the playground
- Swim at the pool
- Have a picnic
To make your own summer bucket list, plan a combination of things. Make sure you have a few things that each family member wants to do and things that everyone enjoys. Plan things that cost, but plenty that are free too. Some activities might be done at home, other around your hometown.
