Our Summer Bucket List.....

I have no idea when I started hearing the term Bucket List but I started seeing them for different occasions a few years ago.....I’ve seen them for every season and sometimes every holiday....

This year I've decided to do one for our family....I have come up with a list of things to do this summer....

Here's what I have so far....
Go to the cinema.
Blow bubbles.
Fly a kite.

Go for a train ride.
Hula hoop.
Play hopscotch.
Go on a boat ride.
Ride a roller coaster.
Visit the library.

Make playdough.
Build an indoor fort using blankets.
Win a prize at the fair.
Make a bird feeder.
Have fish and chips and the seaside.
Feed some ducks.
Find a park we haven’t been to and visit it.
Build a sandcastle at the beach.
Have a barbecue.
Go swimming.
Roll down a really big hill.
Climb trees.
Make Ice Lollies.
Have a picnic in the park.
Go to a museum.
Make lemonade.
Collect seashells at the beach.
Walk barefoot in the grass.
Explore a forest.
Paddle in the sea.
Watch the sunset.
Catch some bugs.
Dance in the rain.
Make smoothies.
Plant some new flowers.
Have a water balloon fight.

 Do you make bucket lists? What have you planned for the summer?


  1. What a great list. Sounds like a fun summer ahead! Emma

  2. my bucket list is waaaaaaaaay to long to share but includes a lot of what you have on yours.

  3. visit the library is a great idea, there's always a summer reading game in the holidays with a different theme. Kids get stickers if they read books to fill a poster in. Always good fun.

  4. I've written one, but it's more like things I want to do over a number of years - it's about 10 pages long! I think I should probably break it down into seasons like this :)

  5. It's such a good idea - really makes you focus on getting the most out of your time rather than just whiling it away. I'd add camping out - always a winner in our house :)

  6. What a brilliant list - I do make a list but it's much smaller and we will definitely be doing lots of things on your list. Lovely things to look forward to :) #PoCoLo

  7. Sounds fun! I think it's great to put it all into a list otherwise good ideas tend to pop into your head and then out again (if you're anything like me, that is!). Hope you have fun crossing them all off :-) #PoCoLo

  8. Excellent list :) What about - make a daisy chain?

  9. What a great idea - love your list. Thanks for linking :) #PoCoLo

  10. I love all them ideas. We might be doing the boat trip one soon, down the Tyne.

  11. What a fantastic list! Nice that so many of them are not expensive things to do...loads of good ideas there.

  12. absolutely brilliant bucket list! I don't make an actual bucket list as such but i do have a few things in mind which i hope we'll do throughout the summer. It's so great to write them down though as I know it would help us stay on track if i did write it down. Enjoy your summer #pocolo xxx

  13. What a lovely list, I think I might pinch it! I love a good bucket-style list, I'm currently working through my own - 101 things to achieve in 1001 days!
