25 Summer Bucket List Ideas for Families

summer bucket list ideas

Jadah shared her summer bucket list last week and it really inspired me. I have been “thinking about” a bucket list since I fell in love with The Happy Family Movement. “Making” one has been a whole different story.

This week, I finally sat down with my family and brainstormed what we would love to do this summer. I wrote the ideas on giant popsicle sticks and threw them in a mason jar. It sits on our kitchen counter and is a constant reminder of the adventures awaiting us this summer.

Here are my summer bucket list ideas

  1. Make paper mache hot air balloons
  2. Stay in our pajamas all day
  3. Look for alligators (at a state park)
  4. Organize a softball game with friends
  5. Launch a baking soda rocket
  6. Play dress up with the kids (and go somewhere in the outfits)
  7. Bake pretty cupcakes (mine are normally pretty ugly)
  8. Have a lemonade stand and donate proceeds to a charity
  9. Geocache bananza
  10. Have a tie dye party
  11. Make homemade ice cream and have a toppings party
  12. Ride a rollercoaster
  13. Go to a Tampa Bay Rays baseball game
  14. Build an awesome sandcastle
  15. Cook a hotdog with a magnifying glass
  16. Slip n Slide
  17. Camp in our living room (tent, sleeping bags and the works)
  18. See a movie at a drive-in
  19. Pick blackberries
  20. Go bowling
  21. Make a movie starring our family
  22. Build a massive fort
  23. Play in the rain
  24. Go down a water slide
  25. Decorate our street with sidewalk chalk

      Thanks Heather! I think I have most of those pics on my Pinterest board too— we must have similar taste. Such great stuff out there. 🙂

  2. The best duration for you, though, is anytime families can do it,
    so don’t come down into the trap that exercise is usually only effective while done at certain times of typically
    the day. When you have currently recognized your entire body sort construction, it is possible to now
    give full attention to selecting the food list to go with your
    diet plan method. An anti-aging eating routine will ideally include protein from numerous
    sources to present the body every possibility to
    build up muscle and to repair existing muscle tissue.
