A DIY Summer Bucket List


DIY Summer Bucket List

Summer is officially here! I’ve been dreaming of long summer days for weeks now. But if your family is anything like mine, once the “new” wears off, summer can get kind of boring. My toddler is definitely a get-out-of-the-house kind of person, so having something fun to do every day is essential to our summer survival.

This DIY Summer Bucket List is the perfect activity for toddlers, and it would even work for older kids, too. The clothespins are great motor-skills work for little ones, and they’ll love getting to add a new activity to their “bucket” once it’s complete!

To make this activity *really* easy, I used our list of 25 Family-Friendly Summer Activities in DFW to plan the items for our bucket list.
