Summer bucket list ideas are an essential investment. They are powerful tools especially if you’ve enlisted your family and created a family bucket list. You can use it to plan exciting summer activities to make memories with your family. 

Shilagh Mirgain of the University of Wisconsin (UW) School of Medicine and Public Health says :

everyone should have a bucket list….keeping a bucket list helps us remember what is truly important regarding our own sense of self-fulfillment.

Here’s the thing. It’s time to start ticking off items from your summer bucket list. 

It’s summer and time to have some fun. Why don’t you step out of your comfort zone and make the summer bucket list ideas a reality rather than a one-day dream?

Hold a family meeting and get started.

If you are short of time because of work commitments, schedule evening or weekends to checking off an item or two.

Whatever your reason, find a way to work around obstacles to get cracking with fulfilling the dream list.

What’s in it for you as a parent?

•  The big opportunity to be with and enjoy your family.
•  To chuck your teachable moments and positive parenting rules out the window and up the fun factor with them.
•  The chance to really engage and get to know your kids. Taking action to make the summer bucket list ideas come true is an awesome way to connect with your teens as well.

What’s in it for your kids? The chance to see the other side of you.

To see you as more than the corrector of wrongs and the reminder of homework or chores to be done.

So get ready to make awesome memories checking off items on your family wish list.

I really like the neighborhood cook-off idea. We have had similar get togethers in the past but a cook off would be fun.

Nice post and a wonderful idea. One of the things I like to do for our family is to create a family recipe book. The kids have asked for it and we have already created the list of recipes.

I love these ideas! Definitely taking some and doing them myself. I think one of our bucket list ideas has to be a big family vacation. Like, go to Europe or Central America, somewhere haha!

Thanks for reminding me about having a family bucket list! I’ve done several of the activities already, including a complete family photo shoot. I never thought of creating a family logo, though!
