Summer Bucket List

Summer Bucket List Printable

You need a summer bucket list, I promise! We do this each season with our family, usually sitting around our dinner table one evening. We have learned from years past, that if we don’t write down fun ideas to do together – that time just goes by and we don’t do much of anything. But summer is what you make of it – you can fill it full of family memories, vacations, daily little fun things – whatever fits your family situation this summer.

 

I made this free blank printable so you can create your own family bucket list this summer. Grab it here. Use this or any blank sheet of paper – and get your list going early so that you have time to schedule, plan and make a lot of them happen.
