We are always looking for things to do in the summer, so my family and I made it a little bit easier and wrote out a summer bucket list of things we would like to do as a family. That way when we are trying to figure it out, we can just pick from our list. It was super fun for me because I am a big list maker! I get out my favorite pens and stationary and have a ball! Grocery lists, goal lists, cleaning lists… I even have a list book! (Okay I’m sounding like a lot of fun, haha!)

One thing I’m most excited for is the lemonade stand! I think it’s because it brings back memories from when I was little and nothing is better than sharing those memories with your kids. I can picture us on a hot summer day with fresh lemonade and nothing to do but make memories and a little cash for the kids of course. Plus, this is an amazing project for children. Making the product, gathering the supplies, setting up “shop,” pricing the drink and finding the courage to talk to customers. If you have little ones, this can be a big step, but as the children get older, they can take on more responsibility by counting money and encouraging buyers to purchase more than just one cup!

While making this list, it’s important to customize it! If you and your family don’t want to have an up all night party then have a pajama day! Make it your own. Or make it easy and use ours! Download our Summer Bucket List Here.
