Summer Bucket List

It's the last week of school, which means I have only a few short days before our five-year-old is home with me all day. D loves school and has been a little sad about leaving his teacher and friends, so we've been working on a summer bucket list to help him think of all the fun things we can do.

I love this printable from Leanne at Organize & Decorage Everything.It's printed out and ready for summer boredom complaints!

Our son is rising kindergartner, so our list is based on his interests (all things science and space) and feedback from his teacher (he excels academically, but is still developing his social and gross motor skills), our budget, and our location. Here's our list.

Indoor Fun
Outdoor fun:
  • VBS
  • Dinner devotional
  • Work on memory verses
  • Learn the 10 commandments
  • Write our Compassion kids
Always learning
  • Continue weekly spelling lists started by his teacher
  • Practice tying his shoes
  • Practice writing lower case letters
  • Daily quiet time as he transitions to no naps :-(
  • Summer reading program from Scholastic
  • Many trips to the library
  • Book reports
  • Workbooks pages to earn tech time
  • Space Camp!
  • Work on typing/keyboarding skills
  • Learn to play chess
Places to Go, Things to See
  • Family game nights. We've been playing a lot of Settlers of Catan.
  • Play with neighborhood friend
  • Playdates with school friends
  • Host friends from Canada
I made a printable of our summer bucket list. 

What's on your summer bucket list?
