Every year, I shared my list of cool things to do in the summer and I realized, it was time to do a Summer Bucket List again for the summer of 2015!

Last year, was the summer of giving — we had that beautiful girl Diana here from the Ukraine. This year is the summer of Sarah — and it SEEMS like we are spending a lot of money on camps/etc but her birthday is in June. We asked for the “gift of activity” for her instead of toys from the grand parents and close family members. That makes for a perfectly filled summer bucket list for us.

Now, before I get started, let me tell you that you can print off your own list (for free): Operation40k summer bucket list

Keep in mind that the idea of a summer bucket list isn’t a list of everything you HAVE to do over the summer! It’s a list to refer back to when you have those “what should we do today” moments.

There is NO WAY we will get everything on the list done in the 10-12 week window of summer vacation !!! Just like meal planning – some ideas can roll onto the NEXT list if they don’t actually happen on THIS list. Some things are a definitely happening item and some a “fillers”.

Here is OUR list, just in case you need an idea or two to start yours!

This summer seems swallowed up already –

Things we plan to do:

  • Camp Invention for Miss Sarah
  • Dance Camp for Miss Sarah
  • Horse Camp for Miss Sarah
  • Vacation Bible Camp for Miss Sarah
  • Camp Hero for Miss Sarah
  • A week at the cabin
  • Make Popsicles (we have cool popsicle makers to play with)
  • Library and bookstore reading programs
  • A “sleep over” birthday Party for Miss Sarah!
  • Girl Scout Event (of their choosing) –snack workshop
  • Crafting (an ongoing process)
  • Church Drive In Movie Night

See what I mean?
