Are you ready for Summer vacation?!??! ME EITHER! I can feel the “I’m bored”s washing over me already. Thankfully, there really are so many wonderful kids crafts and activities to keep them busy for a few weeks at least. I have made a printable bucket list for summertime for you so that you can keep track of all of your adventures this summer. If at any point over the break you are stumped about what to do that day, pull a slip from your Bucket List Jar for some inspiration.
I brainstormed more than 80 Summer activities in the bucket list printable. Even though I was able to come up with so many ideas, I am sure there are plenty of fun adventures that I missed. That is why I included several blank spaces, so you and your kids can add your own ideas!
MAKING THE BUCKET LIST JAR
Cut the jar label out and glue or tape it to the jar. You can use any jar or bucket you have on hand to make your bucket list jar. Then finish decorating the jar however you would like. If you would like to make a paint drip jar like you see in these pictures, check out this tutorial.
Cut out the bucket list items, fold the slips of paper in half, and place them in the jar. Add any additional items to your family’s bucket list that you want to make sure to do this summer. Be sure to add those additional items to slips of paper, and place them in the jar as well.
When you have free time over summer vacation, pull a slip from your Summer Bucket List jar and do it! Remember to cross each item off of your list as you accomplish it. Can you do them all before school starts again?
