I need another list like I need a hole in the head. But I can't stop making them, especially when they are colorful and pretty!
Since we have all summer off together (perks of a teacher husband), we have the great gift of lots of time together. But that also means that there is lots of time to fill, and that makes my mind go blank. I know, the "Bucket List" idea has been done over and over again. But then so has spending all summer not knowing what to do all day, and regretting that you didn't do more to enjoy the summer.
Our kiddos are little, so the list includes some basics and not too many far flung adventures. But that is the beauty of this little printable. You can fill it in with whatever activities you love to do and don't want to miss out on this summer.
In case you think this is just another list that will get lost, here are my...
Top 3 Bucket List Tips
- Hang/pin it up in a place that everyone can see and that you pass by regularly. The more you see the list, the more often you will think of doing your fun things this summer.
- Let everyone in the family contribute to the ideas. If kids get to choose an activity, they are more likely to go along with the activities that others choose, and they take ownership of the family getting out and having fun together.
- Make your list fun/colorful/decorative. This is not a grocery list. Let the kids color it (or use the nifty Whitehall Shop printable below), and make the list something that reminds you to have fun. This is not business, this is fun and making memories.
