Create A Summer Bucket List

June 9, 2023

Summer is almost here, we have a great   way to prepare for all your family wants to do - a bucket list! 

Grab a a bucket from your home or a local dollar store, some clothes pins, a  marker, and have everyone write down some summer fun ideas! write down one idea on each clothes pin and clip the pins all around the bucket. Include some local events that you  want to attend.  Create some guidelines if you want to keep it local ! When you've completed something off the list,  drop the  clothespin in the bucket. Your kids will love watching your bucket fill up!
