Summer Bucket List for a 3 year old

SummerBucket List

I met with some friends last week to try and plan our long weekends over the Summer period. Needless to say we ended up chatting all night and nothing concrete was decided. So I have been thinking and this is our bucket list for the coming weeks.

  1. Stay in a tent over night
  2. Have a water ballon fight
  3. Go fishing in a stream with little nets
  4. Make a travel journal of our Summer holiday
  5. Make & fly a kite
  6. Visit the fountains at the Level in Brighton
  7. Go fruit picking
  8. Visit a sandy beach and build sand castles
  9. Have a treasure hunt
  10. Go on a boat ride
  11. Spray painting (poster paint!)
  12. Visit an aquarium
  13. Visit a zoo
  14. Visit a farm
  15. Visit Daddy’s work and have lunch
  16. Go to EastbourneΒ airshow
  17. Watch a Joust
  18. Roast marshmallows on the fire pit
  19. Make sun catchers
  20. Go on an elephant hunt for charity
  21. Have a water pistol fight
  22. Make homemade ice lollies
  23. Watch go-karts
  24. Try Geo-catching
  25. Roll down a hill
  26. Paint with cars
  27. Visit a lavender farm

    Another great idea! We always write a list of things the kids want to do in the school holidays – we haven’t managed to write it yet but with only 3 days left of school I’m sure it’ll happen soon πŸ™‚

    Love this, the simple things are the best, like going to the beach or roasting marshmallows. Summer is awesome, might have to steal your list for ourselves! #twinklytuesday

    Great post…I might steal a few πŸ™‚ I love the idea of doing a little treasure hunt for S, he’d just love it! #twinklytuesday

      I would love to glamp – hubby not keen! Hence the tent in the garden … Was hoping he may feel left out and come and join Monkey and me, but I just got that knowing look when I suggested it. He did agree to get the tent out of the loft though! Small victory!! πŸ™‚ xx

    What a great list! This is one of the hardest parts for me about being divorced. For the last two summers, my ex-husband has chosen to exercise his visitation rights (or outsource them to his parents), which means that my girls and I don’t get to spend summer together. I have so many ideas, but can only do the ones I can squash into the weeks on either end of the holidays. We’re going to own town’s outdoor summer musical (Hairspray), hosting a sleepover for my daughters’ best friends, and going to an ice cream festival.

    Thanks for linking with #TwinklyTuesday.

    I love this list. If this could be squeezed into a kiddies summer it sure would be a great one for them. My 11 month old probably wouldn’t appreciate some of these. My aim with is to take her swimming as much as possible and take her to places she can see and touch sand K x

    I absolutely love your blog! Full of such fantastic ideas. This post is so inspirational to me – we end up spending all our time attending social events (parties weddings etc) that I feel like we don’t get to enjoy the simple things in life! Do you by any chance have a similar list for a 1 year old!;) thank you for linking up to #babybrainmonday x

      I don’t! This is the first year we have done it .. And it’s amazing how quickly life moves on and you forget – so glad I write everything down – but will have a think πŸ™‚ xx
