Summer Bucket List: What's on Your Family's?

I absolutely adore this idea from Little Wonder Days.

Make a Bucket List of all the fun activities you can do with your kids over the summer. Write them down and put them in a pail (or another cute receptacle of your choice).

Little Wonder Days color codes activities by how much time they'll take (2 hours, 1/2 a day, a full day, all summer).

Every night (or whenever you've got time for an activity), take turns having a family member pull a paper from the bucket.

I'm starting my bucket list right here, right now:
  1. Go to the Drive-in
  2. Make ice cream (and eat it too)
  3. Plant a garden
  4. Go blueberry picking (this is kind of cheating since we do this every summer)
  5. Make lemonade
  6. Go on a boat (my two-year-old hasn't been on one yet)
  7. Roast marshmallows (translation: make S'mores)
  8. Make a fabric cover for the tee pee made of branches in our yard
  9. Milk a cow
  10. Go to a concert
  11. Fireworks!

I'll finish my list later ... and talk to you on Labor Day.

If you need activity ideas, take a look at Little Wonder Day's Bucket List.

Thank you, thank you, thank you to Little Wonder Days for this brilliant idea (and to Ohdeeoh for leading me to her).
