Every summer we make a bucket list of things we want to do. Each year we always have different ideas of what we should do. Last year we did a cross country trip and wrote about things we wanted to try and see. We crossed off our list as we went.
I know that writing for us during the summer is hard. But adding a bucket list they can write down is always nice to have. Plus it is fun to see what kids want to do.
Summer buckets lists don’t have to be big complicated things. They can be as simple as I want to go to the zoo. Or maybe they want to play with bubbles.
The summer bucket list has three pages to pick from. They allow you to have different levels of writing to help grow with them.
The first one is great for younger kids that can’t write as much but want to make a list. They can draw what they want to do and have someone write below what is they want in the picture. You can also change it up and write the sentence for them and have them draw the picture.
I say these are for younger kids but older kids might enjoy the drawing part as well.
The next list has 10 lines with guidelines for the writing part. This is to help kids that still need those guides to write. It can also be a good way to practice writing.
We used these a lot where I wrote out what they wanted on a paper and they copied it onto their list.
The last one is great for older kids who have writing down and just want a list. And this does not have to be BIG and HUGE activities. I love to challenge my girls to write a bucket list for the week. They might put on finish a book, play outside, a trip to the park, make bubbles, draw huge chalk figures.
I also like that weekly lists also had them writing more during the summer.
What would your kids put on their own personal list?
Mine put bubbles, chalk, coloring, zoo trip, aquarium trip, playground trips, places to see animals, and 1 on 1 time with mom or dad.
