2021 Summer Bucket List

It’s amazing how much different this year feels from last year. I think the weather changed so dramatically this year that we basically jumped into summer with both feet! Winter practically started in October of last year and seemed to last a million years, so I am perfectly ok with the dramatic change.

To keep up with tradition I am sharing our summer bucket list. Some of these things might look familiar as they were on the last year’s list as well, but I look forward to it each year. :)

Also, I still want to point out that some of these things are geared toward kids as well. I put this little “FYI” out there in case you’re wondering why a grown adult would want to do some of these things, haha.

So let’s jump in here!

Food & Drink

  • Make homemade lemonade
  • Make cherry pie bars (this has been on my Pinterest page for far too long without having tried it!)
  • Make peach cobbler
  • Make sun tea
  • Buy a treat from the ice cream truck
  • Have a BBQ (we’re hopefully buying a grill this year!)
  • Make a cheesecake

Out & About

  • Feed the ducks
  • Check out books at the library
  • Go to a farmers market
  • Visit a new park
  • Try a new restaurant
  • Go on a nature walk
  • Go to a splash pad (they were all closed last year, so hopefully we are good to go this year!)

Fun in the Sun

  • Have a water balloon fight
  • Go on a picnic
  • Play outdoor field hockey
  • Make a rock garden
  • Decorate the back deck
  • Plant flowers
  • Go on a treasure hunt

Rain or Shine

  • Go puddle jumping
  • Pajama movie night
  • Hand-write a letter and mail it
  • Play a new board game
  • Make a summer scrapbook
  • 30 day photo challenge (this is a stretch, but we’ll see!)
  • Make a sensory bin (Gryffin is getting a little old for this, but I think he’ll still have fun with it!)

For those who want to make your own, you can also download a blank copy!


I hope you all are having a wonderful start to your summer! What’s on your summer bucket list?!

Much Love,
