It’s one of my (and my kids!) favorite times of the year; it’s summer! We always make a summer bucket list because we absolutely love summer and for good reason. The temperature is warmer, it stays daylight longer, and school is out! And while much doesn’t change for me in the summertime, except I’m even busier trying to work while always driving the kids around all over the place, I am really embracing it this year!
This summer I am embracing it! I am trying to work a little less and be more present. Because even though summer might be like any other season for me…for my kids, this is their time to make memories! And I want to be a part of that. I’m not going to lie, I’m absolutely exhausted…but we are living our best lives! I am sharing my ultimate summer bucket list for kids below!
The Ultimate Summer Bucket List for Kids
1.) Watch fireworks
2.) Eat popsicles and ice cream.
3.) Visit the zoo.
4.) Catch lightning bugs.
