What's on Your Family's Summer Bucket List?

Our free printable can help keep your family having fun all summer long!

Summer might not officially start until June 20, but the late sunsets, blooming flowers, and -- most importantly to my kids -- the end of the school year certainly makes it seem like summer is already here!

I'm as excited as my kids are because spring has been a challenge for all of us, to say the least. So I want my kids to have an amazing summer... even if it might look a little different this year.

One of our favorite family activities at the end of each school year is to make a family summer bucket list. We needed to get creative this year given that some of our typical summer activities, like amusement park visits and concerts, are likely out for the season.

But no problem, I assured my kids. This will still be a summer to remember. We just have to get creative!

Macaroni Kid wants to help your family get excited about summer too! So you'll find a free summer bucket list printable below with lots of fun ideas like:
