Summertime is my very favorite time of year. I think I have that in common with most school kids.
My kids always enjoyed summer break, too. Even though we’ve been homeschoolers for many years, we’ve always taken a break over the summer and this year will be no different.
Still, though, I never wanted my kids to just sit around being bored through June and July.
So I thought it would be good to share a printable family summer bucket list to give you some ideas for how to keep the kids (and yourself) entertained over the summer!
This is such a simple way to add fun to your summer without overloading everyone’s schedule. Plus, you can choose as many or as few activities as you like.

Summer Fun! Printable Family Summer Bucket List
One of my biggest regrets about childhood is that I didn’t spend much time outside. I’m a child of the 80s, so I was indoors watching television a lot.
Looking back, I think I would have liked being outside more if I’d had a better idea of what to do while I was out there.
So, if you’re like me and a bit…unsure about how to help the kids get outside more, this family summer bucket list is a perfect help!
There are sixty-five different bucket list ideas here for kids, including ways to have fun outside, places to visit over the summer, crafts to make, and ways to help others.
Some of the ideas include:
- Going on a stargazing hike
- Having a water balloon fight
- Reading to others at a local nursing home
- Going to the zoo
- And many more!
How to Complete Your Family Summer Bucket List
So, once you have your family summer bucket list, how do you actually get around to doing the items on it?
Here’s an idea that may help.
Enlist your kids to make sure you actually choose one activity a day. Since there are 65 different ideas, you can try one each day and fill up the entire summer!
Laminate the bucket list and hang it on the refrigerator. As you try each one, check it off with a dry erase marker.
If you’re feeling really adventurous, let the kids plan your week by choosing seven activities themselves. They’ll be so excited to complete all the activities!
As a bonus, plan a special treat for when you’ve tried each item on your summer bucket list. You might even make some special family memories along the way!
