Go strawberry picking
Design a fairy garden
Make art, outside, with the kids (sketch, paint, collage)
Learn to hoola (this one's for me!)
Picnic in the backyard
Take walks in the woods, find treasures for our nature table
Read stories and poetry in the fresh air
Spend lots of time at the beach
Tag the neighborhood with happy sidewalk chalk
Giggle under the big top
Listen to their music under the trees
Camp out in the backyard
Go to the county fair
It will be so very helpful to have this list to refer to as summer gets into full swing. These simple activities will be the priorities, and I will make space for them as we establish our summer rhythm and as we start to schedule things on the calendar. Weekend family time will feel easy and purposeful when we have a short list of ideas to go to.
So now it’s your turn! What joyful moments would you like to experience with your family this summer? What’s on your Summer Bucket List?
