Our Summer To-do List

I have decided that I will dedicate this summer to hanging out with my daughter. If  you were to google a summer kids to-do list aka the summer bucket list, you will get lots and lots of results. Some of those results are more just a list of activities that you can do with your kids ranging in ages, and some are more specific. For example, I decided to make our own summer to-do list with things I have been wanting to do with my daughter. I have seen lists with 100 even 200 things on there but I decided to keep ours simple.

Hopefully we will be able to get all of these 50 things done.

Also I am not afraid to change the list if needed. After all she is only almost a 3 year old.

You can make up your own list or find one online.

I will try my best to update you on our activities through the summer.

No worries, I will still post about other things.

Here is my summer board if you want to check out other ideas.

Happy Summer!

  1. What a great idea Megan! No kids... yet! ;) But this is the perfect way to keep your kids going throughout the summer. Bit of a nerd here, but I remember getting bored halfway through the summer. Found you through Tip Junkie


Thank you for your comments. I do read them and appreciate them. Have a wonderful day!
