Visual Summer Bucket List for Kids
The temperatures are getting warming, the kids are getting anxious and everyone is ready for that last school bell to ring! We wanted to find some items to fill your bucket list this summer and think we did a pretty good job. From rainy day fun to getting outdoors in the sun (or even stars) take a look at this Visual Summer Bucket List for your Kids this school break!
Consider making a calendar. We had a friend list all her summer bucket list ideas on a calendar. An idea can be placed on each day so you stick to a schedule. Otherwise, create a list on a dry erase board and cross off your ideas as you get them done. What a memorable summer the kids will have!
Have fun with Watercolor Pastels in this DIY Tattoo for summer. Source Unknown.
Turn into a Human Bubble like One Charming Bubble. We think this idea is so fun, perhaps add the bucket list item of making homemade bubbles.
Color the Entire Driveway in Sidewalk Chalk. Come on mom, get out there with the kids and do something creative. Pinterest search, Father’s Day chalk art. It could be a fun idea for June.
Make a Water Blob like this tutorial on Fabulessly Frugal. I had friends make this and the kids absolutely loved it – it’s a one and done type of craft though you might get a few uses out of it during the week.
Take it to the beach with this Beach Scavenger Hunt on Frugal Coupon Living. Take a look at how we created this idea using a beach bucket!

On a rainy day, Make Abstract Window Art from And Next Comes L. You could probably google some abstract artists for inspiration!
