A Summer Bucket List!

Get ahead of the game and create a summer bucket list. Sit down with your kids and brainstorm a list of fun activities or experiences you’d like to have during this time. Below are some creative tips as you prepare for the summer:

  1. Plan Theme Weeks: Choose a different theme for each week of the summer and plan activities, crafts, and outings around that theme. For example, you could have a “Space Week” where you learn about planets, make DIY moon rocks, and visit a planetarium.
  2. DIY Camp at Home: If you’re not able to send your kids to summer camp, create your own camp experience at home! Set up different stations or activities around your house or yard, such as arts and crafts, science experiments, and outdoor games.
  3. Explore Your Local Area: Take advantage of what your local community has to offer by exploring parks, museums, libraries, and other attractions. Look for free or low-cost events and activities happening in your area throughout the summer.
  4. Start a Garden: Get your kids involved in gardening by starting a small vegetable or herb garden together. It’s a great way to teach them about responsibility, patience, and where food comes from.
  5. Host a DIY Film Festival: Choose a different movie to watch each week and make it an event by creating themed snacks, decorations, and activities to go along with the movie. You could even invite friends or family over for a backyard movie night.
  6. Encourage Creativity: Provide your kids with plenty of opportunities for creative expression through art, music, writing, or other hobbies. Set up a designated “creativity corner” in your home where they can explore their interests and unleash their imagination.
  7. Plan Outdoor Adventures: Spend as much time as possible outdoors enjoying nature. Whether it’s hiking, biking, swimming, or just playing in the backyard, fresh air and sunshine are essential for a fun and fulfilling summer.
  8. Volunteer Together: Teach your kids the value of giving back to the community by volunteering together for a local charity or organization. It’s a great way to bond as a family while making a positive impact on others.

But whatever you do this summer, be sure to document your memories!!   Encourage your kids to keep a summer journal or scrapbook where they can write about their favorite memories, draw pictures, or collect mementos from their summer adventures. It’s a wonderful way to preserve and cherish the moments you share together.
