50 Summer Bucket List Ideas for Kids Plus FREE Printable
School’s out for summer! Keep your little ones busy with a summer bucket list!
As a teacher, I cherish these 8 weeks. I practically moon walk out of my classroom every year. But, as a mom to two boys, I have to keep my kids busy and engaged.
We opted out of sending our 6 year old to a summer learning academy because we really want to create memorable moments and do things together as a family. We made a bucket list for ourselves and now we’re sharing 50 fun kid summer bucket list activities. But, if you just came to grab the FREE printable bucket list and check off each item as you go, just scroll down to the bottom to get it.
