Ultimate summer holiday bucket list

craftcartwright Parenting 6 Comments

So the summer holidays are here. I feel so fortunate that I get to spend time with my kids over the holidays. However there are sometimes, when by 9am we have run out of activities and the kids are already ‘bored’. Not that I mind a little boredom, but sometimes both the kids and I need a little inspiration for how to fill the long lay days of summer. So this year we’ve created what we think is the ultimate summer holiday bucket list of 75 great ideas.

Bearing in mind that my kids are 8 and 4, so some activities might not be suitable for older or younger ones. We hope to try and tick off all of them by September. Why not join us and enjoy a fun filled vacation. I’ve included a free printable of the bucket list for your to print off and stick on the fridge. Enjoy!

  1. This is a perfect bucket list for over the holidays and I think I'm definitely up for this mission! Unfortunately I won't be able to drive for the next few weeks which isn't great timing but a lot of these can be done close to home which is brilliant! Thanks for the ideas! Loving the idea of an ocean in a bottle especially. Thanks for linking to #DreamTeam x
