Summer Bucket List | Dallas/Ft. Worth Children's Photographer


Summer Bucket List

My oldest daughter completed her first year of elementary school, it's hard to believe it's over!  


Since we are so used to daily activity, I'm preparing to keep my kids entertained this Summer.  I've read about Summer Bucket Lists before and took a look at a few last year but never pulled through with creating one of our own.  A friend posted about her Activity Bucket and I love the idea, she has it color coded with Popsicle sticks.  It is similar to this one except hers have actual colored sticks.  So off to Pinterest I went in search of lists that I could print out.  I found that many had local activities which didn't work for me since I don't live in the same area.  I found this great printable list to fill in your own blanks!

Next to each line I marked a dot to indicate the color code.

Yellow-Outside
Blue-Treat
Orange-Science
Red-Art 
Purple-Learning
Green-Car Trip 

Next I wrote on each stick and had my daughters' color the top each stick.  On some sticks we used 2 colors to indicate that it was a car trip and outdoor activity, special treat, etc...


Here is our list of 50.
