Summer is finally here and we are super excited for all the fun to come! Even though summer days are less structured than school days, I still like to have something planned for the kids to do. Since my kids are 9,8 and 7, I decided to let them choose what we will be doing this summer. They are old enough to know what they like to do and honestly, I am exhausted from overplanning their lives!!
This past weekend, I sat down with my kids and asked them to create a bucket list. They were thrilled that they were getting to choose what to do. They had so many ideas and I couldn’t write things down fast enough. I was surprised with many of the things they wanted to do. They want to go to amusement parks, swimming, and have breakfast for dinner! There’s camping, building forts and even collecting donations.
Tweens are a fun age group. They are old enough to go out and explore but still young enough to spend hours playing with sidewalk chalk. I remember learning so much at that age, especially in the summer! I hope I am able to go through at least 95% of this bucket list with them! Keep your kids busy and entertained by downloading this printable. Put it up on your fridge and go crossing things off as you go. You won’t believe how much fun this summer will be!
