Printable Summer Bucket List Ideas

Finally! Summer is just around the corner and that means it’s time to get out and do ALL the things you talked about all winter long! If you’re like me, then you just can’t wait for summer!  You plan out all the activities you want to do but before you know it, school bells are ringing and you didn’t get around to any of it! We were not going to let that happen again and have found it really helps if we write our goals down – even if that goal is to eat a popsicle by the pool!

His and Her Summer Bucket Lists

Write your own summer bucket list.

Grab our master list and your hubby and sit down for an evening of summer planning.  Start off by each creating your own summer bucket lists.  What is it that YOU want to accomplish?

My list this year looks a little like:

  • Plant my garden
  • Hit the beach
  • Road trip
  • Read a good book

The top of husband’s list?

  • Go camping
  • Visit a state park
  • See a hot air balloon festival
  • Hike

If you are struggling with ideas we have a printable list of summer bucket list ideas to inspire you.

{BONUS: If an idea on the list corresponds with a date idea from The Dating Divas – it’s linked up on the PDF! Just click and be directed to the date idea!}

Once you’ve both created your own lists, share them and create one master summer bucket list – just for you two!  And while you’re at it, create one for the whole family! What a great way to spend quality time with the kiddos while they’re off for the summer! 

We love that this allows you and your spouse to set some fun summer goals as individuals, then as a couple, and finally as a family.

I am a reading, singing, shopping queen! (I'm very lucky that my handsome hubby likes shopping as much as I do) Married for 9 years and ready for forever, I love spending time with Brigham (my husband) and our 4 kiddos. I teach high school English during the school year and in the summertime, we love to go on adventures in the great outdoors.
