Summer Bucket List: Our 2012 List

Now, it’s time to share our 2012 Summer Bucket List.
We kept it simple and only have 20 things on the list. Our time may or may not be limited, so I wanted a very doable sized list.
Plus, if we finish too quickly, I do have 200 more ideas we could use!
Here’s our list:
1. Eat breakfast outside
2. Go camping
3. Learn to swim
4. Try a “new to us” fruit
5. Blow bubbles
6. Play in the sprinklers


7. Do messy painting outside
8. Buy fresh corn from a roadside stand
9. Make a leaf collection
10. Make popsicles
11. Go to the zoo
12. Go out for ice cream


13. Learn to ride a bike
15. Paint rocks
16. Go fishing
17. Paint with sidewalk paint
19. Go to the farmer’s market
20. Wash the car (by hand!)
I decided not to make a large display for our wall.ย We’re currently trying to sell our house, so that wasn’t a realistic option for us.
Instead, I made a pretty booklet. I wrote each activity on a separate index card and illustrated it with simple pictures to help my non-readers know what the activities are.
I then punched a hole in the upper corner and secured the cards together with a binder clip. I added a few pony beads to the ring for a fun touch.
Your bucket list doesn’t have to be complicated or even long. Just remember, it’s all for fun!
