Make Memories with a Summer Bucket List for Toddlers!

Summer makes me so giddy!  I have so many fond memories growing up that come to mind- like jumping through sprinklers, watching fireworks, eating ice cream and playing kickball in a friend’s yard.  Summer is all about memories!  It doesn’t have to be elaborate trips to Disney. It includes all different kinds of memories- planned days out to the zoo or a lazy day in your own yard blowing bubbles. There’s also lots of fun events that only happen in summer that we want to take advantage of. It’s a lot of fun creating a summer bucket list to hang up in your house. You can refer to it and check things off as you go! Since my boys will be 1 and 2, I’ve put together a summer bucket list for toddlers!  Having a summer bucket list for toddlers is a perfect way to make lasting memories and enjoy the most of your summer!

I don’t want to get tied down by the housework or not go anywhere because we don’t know what to do.  We should take advantage of this fun season!  During the winter, we pushed ourselves out of the house sow we wouldn’t get cabin fever! It’s nice that we are free of the coats and can just throw on some sandals to head out.  The bucket list will help us make memories and have new experiences together. You can print it out and use it yourself, or I’ve also made a blank one where you can write your own.  If you find yourself on a day when your kids are saying they’re bored, just refer to your bucket list!
