The idea behind a bucket list is to create a list of things you hope to do before you "kick the bucket," but you can also use the idea for any deadline—say, a list of things you wish to do before you enter your next decade of life, or before the summer ends. Since today marked the unofficial first day of summer, I decided to share 30 ideas of things you can do to start your list.



  1. Make ice cream in a bag! Not sure how? Check this out!
  2. Go on a summer scavenger hunt
  3. Take a trip to the Children’s Museum
  4. Find a Summer concert and go, such as Frogfest....hint hint.
  5. Have a picnic at the park
  6. Go to a drive-in movie
  7. Sometimes it seems like it never rains in the summer, so do a rain dance to see if it works
  8. Go to the pool
  9. Have a water balloon fight
  10. Watch fireworks
  11. Go on a hike
  12. Find a lightening bug
  13. Go on a boat!
  14. Read a book
  15. Plant something and see how big it gets before the kids go back to school
  16. Watch a parade
  17. Blow bubbles
  18. Find a train and go on a ride
  19. Visit a farmers market and pick a new vegetable to try
  20. Find an ice cream truck and get ice cream
  21. Make a water obstacle course
  22. Visit an aquarium
  23. Make a list of 10 things you love about summer
  24. Lay on the grass and find pictures in the clouds
  25. Eat a sno-cone
  26. Go camping
  27. Play flash light tag
  28. Ride in the car with the windows all the way down
  29. Whenever the mood strikes- turn up the music and have a dance party
  30. Run through the sprinklers

These ideas aren't original, I borrowed them from The Pinning Mama. Either way, you can use this as a start to your list and add some more things that you want to accomplish.
