I don’t know about you, but for us this is the first week of true summer weather. Until now, it has been cold and rainy. And since summer has officially arrived, I thought we better put together our Annual Summer Bucket List!
This year, I thought we’d do something a little more fun than just a list on my computer. So with a little help from my Cameo and a little creative thinking on our favorite summer activities, we have a great list of summer fun planned.
Why write a Summer Bucket List?
* It encourages time spent together.
* It reminds you of the fun things to do with your family.
* It makes you deliberate and intentional with your time, when summer can fly by so quickly!
* It creates memories with your kids.
When Writing Your Summer Bucket List, Ask Yourself These Questions:
* What activities ooze Summer to you? Is it time at the pool, picking summer berries, spending time in the sprinkler?
* What are local festivities or points of interest that you’d like to visit?
* What activity would thrill your kids?
* What are the “good old summertime” things you remember as a child?
* What would you like your child to experience or learn about this summer?
Get to writing! I usually have about 20 things on my list. Don’t worry if you don’t get to everything during the summer. After all, you’re not being graded . . . it’s summer!
Here is my list (and it often includes many similar items from previous years):
1. Go to the Zoo.
2. Eat S’Mores.
3. Swim Til We’re Pruny.
4. Have a Garage Sale.
5. Make Sno Cones.
6. Go Berry Picking.
7. Make Pudding Pops.
8. Go Hiking.
9. Have Friends over for Campfire Cones.
10. Go to the Drive-In.
11. Entertain on the Deck.
12. Go Camping.
13. Attend “Old Glory Day” Celebrations!
