Summer Bucket List

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 

Start to brainstorm with your children a list of what they want to do this summer.


Last year I wrote it down on a large piece of paper and taped it to the basement door. Let your kids cross it off the list when it's done.


It's also a "go-to" list when you hear the dreaded words......"I'm bored". 



Come back and post what is on your summer bucket list. 


(Starting this early this year because some kids will be done with school in May).

This is a great idea!  It's something I think we will have to sit down and start planning.

This IS a good idea.  I am going to do this with my kids, too.  With me working full time, I hate how much we CAN'T do anymore..but making a list of things we CAN do..and then making sure we do them...should help us all!!!!!

I am going to try not to repeat your list

- Pick a country and cook the cuisine from there

- attend a concert

- Flashlight Tag (DS is going to be 14 and he still loves playing this)

-have a bonfire roast marshmellows

-camp out in backyard

-visit your nearest large city as a visitor see all sights you take for grated living so close and end the day if budget permits staying at a hotel wake up the next day and have bkfast before heading out

-go night swiming (one of my favorite things to do as a child)

-go fishing

-write a pen pal (celeb or family or friend who has moved away)

-learn yoga

-start a family tree

-breakfast picnic

-ice skating

-have kids make no bake desserts (search internet for receipes)

All I can think of for now
