3. Create Individual or a Family Summer "Bucket List"

Summertime is meant to be fun! So make sure you take the time to play, go on adventures and spend quality time with yourself and your children, while engaging in activities that you all can enjoy together! One way to transform your summer experience is to create individual and/or Family "Bucket Lists!"

Bucket Lists help create excitement, wonder, and fun to your summer! They also give you and your children a chance to explore, create, and try new things, creating meaningful memories for all!

Bucket Lists can be whimisical or fantastical, it is really up to your and your family to decide the how, when and where....but please ensure that whatever and whenever you do what is on your lists, that as parents and caregivers, you are creating the time, energy, and space to be present and fully participatory (that means not being on your phone or tech device).

Also, even if your child's idea of fun feels boring or perhaps the last thing you want to do, please remember that the completion of bucket lists is about you and your child's needs, wants and preferences. Bucket Lists are about strengthening and deepening your relationships as a family as well as with each child individually...and you never just might actually have fun digging for worms or creating a fairy garden! Below is an example of a bucket list in case you and your family are in need of some prompts!
