Ultimate Summer Bucket List

A bucket list is a list of activities and experiences you want to complete within a set amount of time. People often make a travel bucket list with places they want to visit, or a holiday bucket list with fun activities leading up to Christmas. While some bucket lists are intended to happen over a lifetime, a summer bucket list is a great way to enjoy as many activities as you can before the kids go back to school. If you’ve never made a bucket list before, get ready for some creative fun!

Today we’re giving you a whole library of fun ways to enjoy your summer break! So before you get tired of hearing “Mom, I’m bored”, gather the kids together and make your own family summer bucket list. Grab our free printables and take a look at the following ideas to get you started!
