You can create it on construction paper, on the computer or a chalk board, or even on a poster board.
On our bucket list, we combine a mix of indoor and outdoor activities, road trips and ideas for making crafts, cooking/baking, places to visit, community service, things to create and more.
Some of our favorite things to do include: build a fort, run through sprinklers, visit a spray fountain, make snow cones, catch fireflies, play mini golf, go to an outdoor movie, make a new recipe, visit local pools/beaches, go on a hike/nature walk, read a book, make s’mores, create an obstacle course, make a music video, write a letter and more.
Once you create your summer bucket list, the kids will enjoy checking off the items as you complete the activities.
This year we bought poster board and made our list with markers.
I have seen some other ideas on Pinterest – some have printables, some use sticky notes, clothes pins, popsicle sticks, whatever suits you.
Have the kids write it out themselves if they are old enough.
We were inspired by Judy Moody and her quest for thrill points one summer and my daughter created a similar poster like Judy did.
