40 Ultimate Summer Bucket List with Kids | Free Checklist

Our nearly 6 year old has a holiday memories book and I thought it would be a nice idea if he writes down everything that he’d like to do this summer. Then we have a point of reference for ideas and to make sure we make the most of our summer. I added a few myself afterwards but these are mostly his ideas and I feel they work pretty well for just about all ages.

This is a UK based list of all the ultimate summer bucket list things to do with your kids. Chris Evans once said that you shouldn’t go abroad until you’d explored all that the UK has to offer. Now I’m sure he doesn’t stand by this but he does have a point.

Summer started on the 21st June so this is when we started ticking things off on our list. Summer runs until the 23rd September. Let’s see how many we can get ticked off. Are you going to join us? We’ve tried to keep this as outdoors based as much as possible. Let’s try not to spend the summer indoors, even if it rains.

Where will our Summer for 2019 take us

We have a lot planned for this summer. I thought we experienced a lot last year but 2019 truly tops it. This is what we have planned for our summer. I hope you will follow us on Instagram to watch our daily stories. Plus we will be sharing on Facebook and on here. We have a few things not yet confirmed so I will add these when I can. Anything above that isn’t a day out will be fitted in on beach days. I am so ready to be busy and spend lots of quality time with our son.

If I was our son I wouldn’t want to go back to school after all of this.
