If you run short of fun ideas this summer, then this free printable summer bucket list is just what you need! There are so many wonderful kids crafts and activities to do and so much time to do them, but not all activities have to be crafty. This summer, keep track of all of your adventures and pick a new one to do each day!

Why this idea works

We’ve put together more than 80 fun summer activities and put them into a free bucket list that you can print out today. Have other ideas? Write anything we may have missed on a slip of paper and drop them in as well. We’ve included several blank spaces, so you can add your own!

This is a great way to fight off summer boredom. While most kids are usually busy the first few weeks of summer, as it gets hotter and the opening of school gets closer, kids start to get restless. That’s where the bucket list comes in!

Here’s what you will need:

supplies for a summer bucket list

A few things more:

Start by printing off the Summer Bucket List Printable onto plain printer paper using a color printer.

tape, scissors, and a jar with a bucket list label

Cut the jar label out and glue or tape it to the jar.

You can use any jar or bucket you have on hand to make your bucket list jar.

Add any additional items to your family’s bucket list that aren’t covered already.  Be sure to add those additional items to slips of paper, and place them in the jar as well.

When you have free time over summer vacation, pull a slip from your Summer Bucket List jar and do it! 

A few bucket list items

Here are a few examples of using your bucket list this summer!

Summer wouldn’t be summer without cooling off in the backyard running through a sprinkler with friends!

Everyone loves a bike ride. Going on a family ride is a fun way to stay healthy, get fresh air, and enjoy some quality family time!

Bubbles! Run to the dollar store, or refill bubbles with your own homemade bubble solution. To make your own bubbles, mix together 2 cups of warm water, 1/4 cup of sugar, and 1/4 cup of dish soap. First, dissolve the sugar in the water, then whisk in the soap. If you let it sit for a few hours it will work better, but you can use it right away if you want to.

Keep your list on the fridge and remember to cross each item off as you accomplish it.  Can you do them all before summer break ends?
