Fit Kids for Summer Series: Summer Bucket List

We’re kicking off our Fit Kids for Summer Series with a little planning. Do any of the rest of you find a ton of great ideas toward the end of the school year, and get so excited for kids to get out so you can do all the fun things…only to forget most of them?┬áMe too! I am so excited to be a little more prepared this year. Check it out!


Does anyone else feel like school flew by? I’m so excited to have my kids home! This can also be a little bit stressful worrying about what we can do so that they are active and I avoid the dreaded words, “Mom, I’m bored!” My boys can get caught up in the video game world if I let them so I am thinking of ways now that I can avoid that this summer. I only have one week left to do this!

I decided I was going to do a “Summer Bucket List.” This is going to be full of ideas that we can do that will keep both their minds and bodies healthy! Have you heard of this? I’m pretty sure I saw it on Pinterest once. It seems like a great way to get a little bit of everything this summer!

Here is what I’ve thought of so far:
1. Summer Reading at the library.
2. Daily run or bike ride
3. Lots of playing in the sprinkler and jumping on the trampoline
4. Science kit experiments
5. Our own field trip
6. Scavenger hunt
7. Swimming
8. Play at the park
9. Sno-cones!
10. Service project

That’s it for now! I would love to hear of ideas that you may have that I can add to our bucket list!!! What is on yours?
