The Ultimate Roundup Of Summer Bucket List Ideas


Goodness, I’m so stinkin’ excited that summer is here! This morning for the very first time in fifteen years, on the first day school was out all three of my children slept until 7:30.


Pretty sure this means I’ve officially arrived. 🙂

We made a homemade waffle bar, and they’re already off getting things together for a trip this weekend. For you moms of little tiny kids, I promise you kind of get control back one day . . . it just may take a few years! 🙂



Last night when we were talking about summer, my girls helped me put together our Summer Bucket List (see the one my son helped me come up with a few years ago over here.) We can’t wait to start enjoying some traveling, hanging out at home, and exploring Ohio a bit this year!



Here are a few of the ideas they came up with . . . 

  • Re do bedroom (meaning move furniture around)
  • Do an act of kindness
  • Play Scrabble
  • Catch fireflies
  • Make cakepops
  • Facepaint
  • Get nails done
  • Make a stage
  • Make giant bubbles
  • Play Twister
  • Volunteer
  • Make smores
  • Try to get a world record
  • Have a picnic


We found so many great (penny pinched!) ideas while scrolling around Pinterest, I thought it would be fun to do a big roundup of Summer Bucket List ideas so you can get started too! Here you go . . .


Ummmm . . . practicing our spelling might just be on our bucket list too, but I love that they did their list all by themselves!
