You guys–school starts in August. How did this happen? How do I have a FIVE YEAR OLD? How is he starting KINDERGARTEN? Ugh. While someone helps me figure that out, I decided I wanted to share with you our Summer Bucket List! These are things i really want to accomplish before my kiddo starts school.
It’s so hard to plan to do things (especially when your Hubby is a total homebody) but I am DETERMINED to do some fun things before its just me and “Crash” all day every day. (A friend of mine calls the little guy “Crash” instead of Cash and I think its hysterical.)
So here it is! The List. Get ready. Get set……
- Splash pad (Visit at least 3 different ones)
- Go to a park on the Lake
- NASCAR Speedpark
- Visit a Children’s Museum
- Plant some veggies
- Paint Pottery
- Go to a water park
- Visit Chuck E. Cheese (Yea-were crazy. I know.)
- Tubing on the river
- Go to a drive-in
- Take a Hike
- Have a water balloon fight
- Buy ice cream from a truck
- Go berry picking
- Have a breakfast date
- See the $1.00 Summer Movies
We already planted a few plants in April, and TODAY we finally harvested some peas! The boys were SO PUMPED to pick the peas!!! I think this is a great one for everyone to try. I have been trying to get the littles to try more veggies and I think this may be a good way to start–get them involved!
We plan on going to the drive-in tomorrow night. (Pray for me y’all. The movie wont start until after 9pm. My kids are going to be a mess!)
We also have already visited one splash pad. We ALMOST visited 2 pads, but ugh the first one wasn’t running, so I guess we can’t count that one. Anyways, 1 down, 2 to go!
I am so excited to already be crossing some fun to-do’s off the list (And I LOVE TO MAKE LISTS/cross items off) and hope by the end of the Summer, we have crossed every one of these off the list!
I know you can look on Pinterest and see THOUSANDS of ideas to keep you busy this summer, but I really wanted to make a list catered to our family, and do things we wouldn’t normally do. I also wanted to keep it realistic!
What would you add to this list? Any fun things you want to accomplish before school starts?
