Summer Bucket list

So this summer I decided to put together a bucket list for the kids with different activities that we want to do.  Every year I have one but it's usually pretty limited.  The past three summers my kids were pretty young and we didn't venture out very much.  This year both of them are old enough and they enjoy doing similar things.  This is the list that I came up with (these activities are geared towards a 3 year old and a 1 and a half year old):

Picnic in the Park
Visit a local water park
Participate in the library summer reading program
Camp out in the backyard
Go to a 4th of July parade
4th of July fireworks
Domino's Petting farm in AA
Local Farmers market
Finger painting
Make banana splits
Make ice cream sundaes
Play in the sprinkler
Paint with water colors
Make doughnuts
Armada fair
Visit a nursing home
Blow bubbles
Stargaze at Meme and Papa's
Roast marshmallows
See an outdoor movie
AA Children's Museum
See a "cheap" movie with Alyssa
Metro Beach
Make a red, white and blue dessert
Make smores
Outdoor bowling
Ride bikes to get ice cream
Troy Museum and Historical Village
Sterling Heights Nature Center
Great Lakes Crossing
Bunert One Room School house

I would love to see everyone else's bucket lists!


  1. That's a really good idea to make a list like that! But I can see where like you said, my list might be pretty limited since Elijah is still so little. But I think I still might make one, more for myself so that I get out and do more interesting things, and so Elijah's gets some learning experiences too!

  2. Great list! There's an article titled something like "50 things to do with your kids in Detroit before they grew up" it's a little old, so it lists some things like the State Fair, that you can't do, but it's got a few other local festivals that I never knew about.

    How about popsicles? You can make your own healthy ones and then eat them outside - combine with sprinkler day for easy clean up! :)
