Summer Bucket List

summer bucket list

Meant to share this last week, tbh this pregnancy has me so tired, I’d rather sleep than do anything! So finally – here is our summer bucket list! The girls and I made it on the summer solstice, painted in the sun and then we listed all our ideas while we were sat around the fire eating smores’.

I think it’s safe to say summer is my favourite time of year, we already have lots of plans penciled in. We’ll be looking forward to ticking things off this list as the summer goes along. Here are all the ideas the girls came up with {minus Baya’s request to walk along a rainbow ;)}:

  • Visit a waterfall
  • Make marshmallows
  • Rock Pooling
  • Swim in the river
  • Make lemonade
  • Visit the beach
  • Fly a kite
  • Make nature art
  • eat toasted marshmallows
  • go on a scavenger hunt
  • have a pamper night
  • make ice-cream
  • Visit cousins in kent
  • Go fossil hunting
  • pick-our-own strawberries
  • build fairy houses
  • holiday in Center Parcs
  • send a message in a bottle
  • go horse-riding
  • make bunting for the garden
  • listen to bands in the park
  • make pet rocks
  • go to the skate park

    Please tell me what a rock pet is? Is it like a miniature Slash or Lemmy? If so, I need one! ps – love your list.

    Great list – see you at Camp Bestival! We will be trying several of those too, have just stolen pet rocks and making lemonade to add to our list too!

    what a fabulous idea , i should make one for myself but i have a tendency to not follow through or forget x

    aww I love that you are making pet rocks! My mum used to make them with me when I was little :) x

  5. July 1, 2014 / 13:31

    What a great list! We’re doing pretty much all the same things, apart from Camp Bestival; a great mix of indoor and outdoor activities, fab!

    how funny, we sat down and did the same thing (although I must confess ours doesn’t look anywhere near as pretty as yours!) Lots of the same things as on your list too – great minds think alike hey ?

    Hope you are feeling OK – remember to take it easy whenever you can – I know with Amelia I felt like I could sleep anywhere,anytime, any place and it was all I wanted to do for the first and last trimesters – fortunately I got a burst of energy in the middle bit! I developed the strategy of a mid afternoon nanna nap, and if anyone asked what I’d be doing I’d respond with “Growing baby some fingernails/toes/ears” – whatever stage of development we were up to. :) Take care lovely.

    PS Gorgeous looking bump you’ve got going on – between you and Bec you are making me feel very broody – until I remember I’d never manage to pull off the glowing pregnancy look as well as either of you. xxx

    We do this every year too and I am looking forward to getting busy with the boys and making ours on Saturday.

    I totally love this list, we ate toasted marshmallows on a recent trip to my sister-in-laws and F loved it! Definitely going to this about making a summer bucket list. x

  9. July 1, 2014 / 15:59

    Great list! I have a list in my head of things to do over the summer, I should follow your lead and write it down.

  10. July 1, 2014 / 16:31

    What a fantastic list!!! I have nothing planned for the summer holidays yet other than the last week when we will be going on our 1st family holiday abroad to Eurocamp Paris! I hope you have an amazing time doing all these wonderful things!

  11. July 1, 2014 / 18:14

    We keep a bucket list, it’s great to have some fun ideas for the holidays.

  12. July 1, 2014 / 19:21

    Love your bucket list but damn you have put a lot down! Really hope you get to do them all! x

  13. July 1, 2014 / 19:53

    Great idea. We were going to go to Camp Bestival but we’re going to leave it this year. And ooh Center Parcs! Jealous ;) Love it there! Enjoy ticking these all off your list.

  14. July 1, 2014 / 21:32

    Wow, you have a lovely summer lined up! It’s a great idea to make a bucket list and yours sounds perfect.

    This is a sweet list. Visiting a waterfall and making fairy houses…so sweet!

    We need to do a Summer bucket list too but it won’t be nearly as imaginative as yours.

    You have some great things on your list. You are far more organised than I am. I must get my thinking cap on for the lovely things we want to experience during the summer hols. We are starting a little early with the Dare 2 B cycling festival at Harewoood House in Leeds this weekend for the Grand Depart of the Tour de France. I can’t wait and neither can my two little ones!

  18. July 2, 2014 / 15:28

    Such a brilliant idea, and for everyone to get involved in. You should totally walk on a rainbow – why not? ;-)

  19. July 2, 2014 / 17:28

    These are all great ideas. Some of them, like swimming in a river, I’v enever done. I’ve seen a small waterfall but it wasn’t a real waterfall.

  20. July 2, 2014 / 22:30

    sounds like you have a great summer planned. We went to Camp Bestival once pre-kids and one day I will take Pip back. (need more spare funds. festivals are so expensive aren’t they!)

  21. July 2, 2014 / 23:19

    What a great idea! I really need to make a list like this – I always want to do the same things year in, year out but never get round to doing them!

    That is a very inspirational list. I want to tick off quite a few of those things myself.

  23. July 3, 2014 / 07:46

    What a great idea to do a summer bucket list! And I love the choices on it – must try and find time to do one of these with my little ones!

  24. July 3, 2014 / 08:06

    lots to do this summer then! :) hope you can get a lot of these ticked off.

  25. July 3, 2014 / 09:14

    Brilliant list and so pretty! I’ve been inspired by this post and I’m going to get the girls to make us a list of things they want to do this summer. I can’t wait to see what they come up with :) xx

  26. July 4, 2014 / 09:32

    I think this is a great summer list and we are just putting ours together (a bit late but oh well) we have a few places to visit and explore on ours, plus of course camping and Camp Bestival too!
