Visual Summer Bucket List for Kids
The days are getting warmer, kids are getting restless, and everyone is ready for that last school bell to ring! I’ve searched the internet high and low for some of the best summer bucket list ideas for kids, and I’ve put together my favorite finds. From rainy day fun to getting outdoors in the sun, take a look at this Visual Summer Kids Bucket List this school break! These bucket list items will get everyone excited for the summer days ahead.

How do I make a summer bucket list?
There are tons of different ways to create a summer bucket list! First, make a note of all the different kinds of activities you want to do. Then, you might want to consider making a calendar to organize your kids bucket list items. We had a friend list all her summer bucket list ideas on a calendar with one bucket list activity per day. Alternatively, you can create a list on a dry erase board or a long sheet of paper and cross off your ideas as you get them done. You could even just keep a rough list in a journal and cross off ideas or add more throughout the summer. The kids are in for a memorable summer with these summer bucket list ideas!
How do you make a cute summer bucket list?
Get artistic with it! Wherever you write your summer bucket list down, make it cuter with little drawings and fun colors for each of the activities. Making your summer bucket list look nice will make you want to save it to cherish the memories you made. This is a great activity for the more creative and artistic kids. You could use glitter, paint, stickers, or any other art supplies to create a cute summer bucket list.
