Summertime is right around the corner. Time to prepare the annual summer bucket list to capture all the cool places I want to check out over the coming months. I always have a list in my head, but now that my kids are getting older they should absolutely be included in the planning!
We use sKIDaddlers to help create our list together. The kids love looking at the pictures and I like reading about all the details. If it makes the cut then I simply save* it to my favorites – no more writing places down on a piece of paper that I’ll inevitably end up losing.
Tips for creating your bucket list..
- Expand beyond your go-to outdoor playgrounds and beaches
- Include some seasonal activities like Farmers Market + Activities/Music, Pick Your Own Veggies/Fruits, Pizza Farms, Summer Music in the Park Series
- Plan ahead for a summer road trip. Search our site for a couple of cities (city, state) you’ve been thinking about visiting and see what pops up. Duluth, Brainerd, Grand Rapids, the WI Dells are popular, to name a few. Visit our Getaways page if you need more inspiration.
- Save some indoor places so that you’re set even on rainy days. If free places to go is up your alley, we have a category for that.
When the weekend rolls around I’ll let my kids help pick which bucket list spot to check off. And on those blessed days when I get out of work a little early there will be no wasted time trying to think of what we should do; since we already have our list set we’ll simply pick one, pack some snacks, and sKIDaddle.
Now that we are ready for the summer adventures to begin that just leaves one question…. What’s on Your Summer Bucket List?
