{Summer Bucket List and FREE PRINTABLE} 54 Things to do with Your Kids This Summer

Summer is upon us and we have officially made our 2018 Summer Bucket List, complete and ready to share with you {alongside a free printable}!!!

We have long been dreaming of sleeping in, sunshine filled days, suntans and sno-cones, endless playdates, late nights, and lots of laughter!  

But let's be real.  The days of summer can also turn long and daunting, especially as the temperatures in Texas top 110.

My favorite part about our summer bucket list is the fact that these are relatively easy items, both cost-effective and filled with creativity.  I am often overwhelmed by these lists because they seem to take so much effort when for us, summer is about low-key and lots of fun.  

And for those of you who are local, we have added a bonus "bucket list" with 36 things to do in the Dallas-Fort Worth area for those days where you are all itching to get out and DO!  

As a supplement, be sure to check out these posts I wrote for Fort Worth Moms blog awhile back on 25 Ways to Serve with Your Kids (perfect for a way to add purpose to your summer) as well as 31 Rainy Day Activities (which is really good for those of you with younger children).
