summer fun printable


Update: I recently posted an updated version of this list. It's much more printer friendly, and doesn't have the year on it. Check it out here.

This project was totally inspired by all of the summer bucket lists that I've seen floating around on pinterest. Now, I need to take a minute to once again declare my love on pinterest. Are you on there yet? I l.o.v.e. it. (If you need an invite to join leave me a comment with your email address and I'll send you an invite.) You can see my pins here.

I love the idea of having a list of things to do with the kids this summer. Last summer I had wanted to do some of these things with the kids, but somehow the summer passed and we didn't get a chance to do half of them!
I've seen lots of these lists, but I think that a lot of them are geared for older kids. Mine is definitely geared towards toddlers, which is good since I have a 3 year old and a one year old! Some of the ideas I saw on pinterest- like the make your own car wash, tin foil river and giant bubbles. I made my own list and then rounded it out with some other ideas I've seen floating around. I especially liked this list form The Crafting Chicks.


I had my summer fun list printed at Costco, since I was ordering a few other enlargements anyway. It's an 8x10 and was just $1.89 (mine has a matte finish). Then I cut a piece of foam board to mount my picture on. I put some tape around the edges of the board so that it looked a little tidier. Foam boards not so easy to cut, so my edges were a wee bit jagged! You could use ribbon too.  Then I just covered the front of the foam board with a light coat of Mod Podge and stuck my list on top of it.
Looks like we're going to have a busy summer! If you'd like to download this list click here. (For personal use only please.) Let me know if you use it, I'd love to see how you display it.

  1. What a fun idea! Since I have no kids, I'll have to make my own version - maybe include a couple fun summer activities for the dog too :)

    And excuse me while I go peruse all your pins (my current obsession as well...)

  3. Ok, you got me. The only reason why I'm not on pinterest, yet, is that I don't want to become obsessed with yet something else...but yet I seem to be thinking: "Oh, if I had pinterest, I could just pin this pic or that pic!" So, can you please invite me? Your summer printable looks so darn professional - awesome job!

  10. That is such a great idea! I see quite a few things on your list that we're doing this summer too. There's just so many great summer things to do and so little summer time (in Canada that is!). Looks like you guys have a fabulous summer in store.
