Even though I'm a homeschool parent, I still look forward to summer. It's a time for unwinding and having fun. This year though at the spurring of my blog tribe I made a Summer Activities Bucket List. I listed off many things that I'd love to do with the kids. I figured you may want to give your own family a sense of adventure using it too.
I know of some people who create a list to cover the aspect of their days off for the summer. They go through and do at least one thing off the list each day. It certainly has given them loads of memories together. Life should always be filled with memory-making moments.
Here are some of the things listed on my FREE Summer Activities Bucket List Printable:
- Host a water party (ie. Sprinklers, water balloons, water gun fights, slip-in-slides,etc.)
- Catch fireflies (and release them back once you see who wins.)
- Make sun catchers
- Take silly pictures/videos
- Send some good ole’ snail mail to friends and family

I hope these ideas have given you a starting point at least to make this a summer to remember with your family. One thing I've learned in my years of being a parent, kids love to have one on one time with you to do various things. They treasure the time they get with you far more than the materialistic items. The older Zeva gets the more I find this to be especially true with girls.
There is a long list of things that you could do together that I didn't mention. However, the overall goal is to make the most of the time you're given. Your family and you will be glad you did.
Be sure and check out what my blog tribe has listed as their summer activities ideas.
