Are you looking for a fun way to keep your kiddos busy this summer? Why not create a summer bucket list? Create a list of all the fun things you and your kids want to do this summer. You can set limits for money, time or place, or just let your kids think wild and crazy. It will not only spark their imagination it is also a great way to learn more about their hopes and desires.
What You Will Need:
Bucket or pail
Lots of paper or post it notes
Pens and pencils
A wild imagination
What You Will Do:
Give everyone in the family about 10 post it notes, and a pencil and let them come up with 10 fun things they want to do this summer. If you have a budget, time schedule, or place you have to stay let everyone know they can only choose something within those limits. Now watch as everyone fills their notes. Have them share them all with the family, that way if they are too outrageous you can suggest a similar idea on a smaller scale, like instead of a trip around the world how about a road trip to the next county? Then put them all in the bucket and each day, or every weekend, take turns picking one from the bucket until you have completed all of your bucket list!
You will be excited to see what everyone chooses, and it will be fun to check things off your list like eating the biggest banana split for dinner, or ca,ping out under the stars. The possibilities are endless so enjoy!
