What's on Your Summer Bucket List?
We are in the first week of summer and it looks like itâ€™s going to be raining again! Take the time now to decide what you want to do this summer! The girls and I made our Summer Bucket List a couple of weeks ago but it is never too late to start one!
I bought our bucket at Target (in the Dollar Spot) and a package of clothespins at the Dollar Tree. I cut out â€śSummer Bucket Listâ€ť using my Cricut and some vinyl. I saw some really cute alphabet stickers at Target, if you donâ€™t have a cutting machine. So the max this craft will cost you is $3. The package of 36 clothespins at the Dollar Tree fit perfectly around this bucket.
So, what kind of things did you put on the clothespins, you might ask. Well, I gathered my girls and asked them what they wanted to do this summer. I had to coach them a little, just to remind them where we are going. I canâ€™t share all of our bucket list ideas, unless you are planning to make trips to Philadelphia, Rhode Island and Chicago :) But some local activities the girls want to do are:
-See a Sand Gnats game (we are going this week IF it is not rained out! Have you been before? It is fun for the whole family and is CHEAP! They have a different promo each day and you donâ€™t have to pay to park! I just like it because we can get snacks or take a restroom break anytime and not have to wait until the end of the inningâ€¦like at bigger stadiums. Sorry for the rabbit trail but honestly, going to at least one Sand Gnats game is a MUST for any family in Savannah!)
-Go to the beach in 3 states
-water balloon fight
-go to VBS
-take swim lessons
-have a sleepover
-go berry picking
-go to a water park
-see a play
-eat seeded watermelon
-go to the zoo
-be buried in the sand
-go to the movies
-go boogie boarding
-complete Live Oak Libraryâ€™s summer reading
Then, when you complete an activity, just drop the pin in the bucket! You can definitely use this from year-to-year and try to complete the list again or think of new activities every year. Either way, I hope it will be a fun tradition for your family!
