Finding things for your family to do all summer can be an overwhelming task. That’s why we have compiled a summer bucket list for families and created a free printable that will allow you to keep track of all the fun you’re having!
This summer, we don’t have any major vacations planned and we’re on a budget, so it was important for us to come up with a list of activities that were attainable and that would provide memories for all of us.
Most of the activities that we included on the bucket list are inexpensive or even free. I’ve linked a few things here and there that might be helpful when preparing for these activities!
