Summer Bucket List 2013

shortsIt’s time for the Smith Family 2013 Summer Bucket List! We’ve been doing the seasonal bucket lists for two years now, and it really helps us to get outside and enjoy life as well as try new things. Hopefully we’ll do them for years to come!

I created a template for both a boys and girls swimsuit, and then cut out a bunch from a variety of brightly colored papers. Then I wrote one bucket list item on the back of each swim suit and hung them on the clothes line. It turned out great! The only thing I didn’t like about it was that my son didn’t get to participate in making it. I’m thinking of having him decorate something to go on the wall with our bucket list, but that is a project for another day.
