Ideas For Your Best Summer Bucket List

Something about summer just puts the wind back in our sails. After trudging through the cold winter months, we’re exhausted from holidays and end of the school year events. And then summer comes and it Just. Hits. Different!

Warm weather and lots of sun makes it easy to get outside, soak up Vitamin D and have fun. So it’s time to get your summer bucket list ready!

What is a bucket list?

A bucket list is a collection of things you want to accomplish, usually in a certain time frame. Life bucket lists are popular and full of activities people hope to check off throughout their lifetime. You may also have a vacation bucket list – a list of cities and countries you’re just dying to visit!

This summer, if you’re looking for ways to cut back on the “I’m bored, Mom…” look no further! The perfect summer bucket list is all you need!

Sit down with your kids and have them help you create a list. Ask them for their ideas on what you can do as a family during the summer. Let them write down all the simple, silly and fun ideas they have. Getting them involved will make them excited about checking things off the list.

There are hundreds, if not thousands of things you could add to you bucket list! They can be as simple as reading a new book or as large as vacation destinations. Think about your favorite summer memories growing up. Your kids would probably love to have the same experiences!

Here are a few ideas to get you started for ultimate summer fun!

15 great summer bucket list ideas.

1.       Go to an amusement park. Take a road trip and spend the day with your family. Try fun carnival foods and get a boost in endorphins on one (or a few) fun park rides.

2.       Hike in a national park. This is a great way to get your workout in, spend quality time with the kiddos and enjoy nature around you. If a national park is out of the question, have some fun roaming around your local park. And check out these other outdoor workouts you may enjoy this summer.

3. Have a picnic!

Make a special lunch, pack up your basket, grab a blanket and a few games and head outdoors! You could include sandwiches and healthy snacks like cut fruit or veggies and dip. Try this delicious True Citrus Summer Picnic Salad for a refreshing and nutrient filled lunch. Don’t forget to pack your True Citrus…these Kids Drink Mixes have 92% less sugar than other popular beverages, plus Vitamins A, C and E (and the kids love them!) Just add them to your water bottle for a refreshing fruity beverage.

4.       Start an outdoor garden. Growing your own garden can provide endless of hours of fun and exercise all in one. And at the end you get something beautiful to enjoy! Growing your own herbs or veggies is a great way to teach your kids how to care for something and promote a healthy lifestyle at the same time.

5.       Be a tourist in your own city. It’s natural to want to head out of town when we need a little R&R. But you don’t need to go anywhere! Spend a day reconnecting to your home city. Make a list of local attractions and head out for a fun recreational day, without the hassle of packing luggage and booking hotels. Treat it as a scavenger hunt. You may even learn something new!

6.       Volunteer. Giving back is always a great idea. Food banks, shelters, and other local nonprofit organizations are always in need of a few extra helping hands.

7. Ultimate Backyard BBQ.

 Invite friends and family over and fire up the grill! Summer is a great time to enjoy the outdoors and host a backyard barbecue. Put out cornhole and a few outdoor games and you’ve got yourself a party! Friends, fun and good food – what more could you ask for?

8.       Watch the sunrise. Yes, sometimes it’s a struggle getting those kids up in the morning during the summer. But plan a day where you can all get up as a family, bundle up together outside and watch the sunrise. It’s beautiful!

9.       Learn something new! Do something you’ve never done before. Take up a new hobby or learn a new sport. Go skiing or surfing, play disc golf, pick up an instrument, or learn to speak a new language. There are endless options to keep your brain healthy and strong with a new skill!

10. Set up a lemonade stand with your kids.

(Or without your kids – we’re not judging!) This is a great way to teach kids a few business skills and have fun, too! True Lemon Original Lemonade is made from real lemon juice and oils and sweetened with stevia. It’s an easy and tasty way to make a refreshing cup of lemonade! At the end of the day, have your kids choose a local charity to donate the profits to. Any organization would appreciate that random act of kindness!

11. Have a family night in on a rainy day.

Spend quality time with your family. Cook a meal together, pull out board games and have fun being silly with your loved ones. Or pop some popcorn and cuddle up on the couch for a movie marathon!

12.   Write a short story. Put your creativity to the test and write a story to share with your family. Kids are never short on silly and fun ideas. See what they can come up with!

13.   Visit a farmer’s market. Support your local farmer’s and economy and pick up your groceries at a local market. You may even find something interesting in season that you’ve never tried before.

14.   Learn a TikTok dance. Why not? Everyone else is doing it! Have a little fun and move your body while you’re at it!
