My kids’ last day of preschool for the year was yesterday, so it’s officially the first day of summer for us! I look forward to fun summer activities, but I’m the first to admit that I miss the structure of school (and the breaks it gives me!). I often stick to familiar routines and places, so I decided to make a summer bucket list to add some variety.
Whether you have no kids, young kids, school-age children, or grown kids, I think a summer bucket list is a great idea for anyone! I wish I had made one back in my pre-children days to motivate myself for more fun activities on the weekends!

Ready-to-Print Summer Bucket List
When creating my summer bucket list, I tried to include a variety of activities…
- places that involve a cost
There are 111 days in summer, and my summer bucket list has 36 items. So if we do about 3 activities each week, we’ll cross them all off by the end of the summer. Totally do-able! And I have no doubt that some of the items will be on repeat throughout the summer (hello, sprinklers!).
Here’s an alternate version with just one font.
My 4 year old has been asking what we’re going to do this summer and mentioning ideas of his own, so he’ll be excited to have a summer bucket list. I’ll let the kids help choose the activities each week too, so they’ll feel ownership and have some anticipation.
Don’t forget to check items off as you go along! At the end of the summer, it will be cool to see everything we’ve accomplished and remember all the fun times and experiences.
So the next time the kids say, “I’m bored,” you’ll know exactly where to look for ideas!
