Our Summer Bucket List

     So, it's summer once again, which means time for our Summer Bucket List.  I started posting our pictures doing some of the summer activities on Facebook and have had a lot of questions on how to make one.  So here ya go.....
     A few summers ago, I came across this fun idea of a Summer Bucket List from this great blog Little Wonders' Days.  Liam and I had a lot of fun coming up with ideas for our own Summer Bucket List in year's past, so I wanted to do it again this summer.   If you haven't done this before here's how it works.....

** I pretty much got the basic outline from Kelly's blog and adapted the master list to what our family wanted to do for the summer, special events around our area, and fun local places to visit **



  • First, make a master list of all the things your family will enjoy doing this summer.
  • Then break it down into how much time each activity will take and color code them by that.
  • Write each activity on the corresponding colored coded paper.
  • Take a simple sand bucket and decorate it with sticker letters, then place the papers inside.
  • Each day or evening, depending on your already scheduled activities, someone pulls out one piece of paper. (So, if you have  busy day, then you would pick out a color coded paper for an activity for an hour or less, if you have a full day open, then you would pick out a color coded paper for an all day activity).

I've broke down our activities into 4 time categories with corresponding colors:
  • All Day Activities
  • Half Day Activities
  • 2 Hour Activities
  • 1 Hour or Less Activities

Here's what I came up with for our 2014 Summer Bucket List...

All Day Activities:

Half Day Activities:

2 Hour Activities:

1 Hour or Less Activities:


     We have so many fun things planned this summer!!  If you have never done a Summer Bucket List, I suggest you do!  It's a great way to spend some fun family time together over the summer.
