Simple Summer Adventure Checklist



I am so happy summer is here, even if it means I'm generally a sweaty mess! Back in June, I was thinking about how fast time flies and wanted to make a list of SIMPLE things that I wanted to do with my kids before school starts. 

This is not a Pinterest mom's list of matching outfits, difficult crafts, expensive vacations. 

No, no. 

This is a quick list that you can make location-specific to where you are!

  • Local trails to walk/hike
  • Local biking trail
  • Berry picking
  • Pick wildflowers
  • Plant wildflowers
  • Backyard camping
  • Pool day with friends (search for local splash pads, too if a pool is hard to find!)
  • Bonfire + roast marshmallows
Inside:
  • Tie-dye
  • Rainy day movie in a fort
  • Make juice/smoothie popsicles
  • Bake banana bread
  • Volcano experiments/eruptions
  • Visit a new library
  • Rearrange the furniture
  • Bowling (check kidsbowlfree.com)
Day Trips:

  • Beach day trip (or a lake or whatever's near you!)
  • Zoo trip, bonus points if a library/friend has a membership and you can go for free!
  • Trip to a local lake
  • Kids museum
And here's my actual list, handwritten and messy and personalized to us!


What are you planning for the summer?! What would you add to this list?
