Summer Bucket List

My kids are in a school with a traditional calendar, so each year, we like to put together a list of ides for fun things we can do throughout the summer. This gives us some ideas when we're feeling a little bored! It also reminds us of all the fun trips and special things we are going to do. So, here's our list for this summer. Both kids are done with regular school on June 7th, so we'll start our activities at that point.

  • Fly on an airplane
  • Visit Plimouth Plantation
  • Visit the Mayflower
  • Visit family and friends in Massachusetts
  • Go to the beach
  • Go to an amusement park
  • Visit Colonial Williamsburg

In our neighborhood
  • Go to the pool (a lot!)
  • Get a treat from the ice cream truck
  • Harvest vegetables from our garden
  • Learn to play four square
  • Learn to jump rope
  • Draw with chalk
  • Ride bikes
  • Ride scooters
  • Play tag
