  1. Thank you for this...I have screen shot it so I have a reference to quickly look to on those days where we have nothing planned! Ha
    Hope you have a lovely summer X

    1. Ah thank you! I hope you have a fab Summer too! x

  2. This is a cool list I'm totally needing some summertime inspiration as I have my three kids to keep entertained over the holidays. I love back garden camping, I have such special memories of doing this with my daughter.

  3. Great list!
    We will be in Greece for half of the holidays, we have an apartment there and live like the locals. Advantages and disadvantages with that, I am bringing loads of activity books along for Emma for the middle of the day, when it is too hot to be outdoors.xx

    1. Thank you! Ah that sounds amazing, I hope you have a lovely Summer! xx

  4. Oooh I love bucket lists! Sounds like this will be a great summer. You have so much to look forward to :D x

    1. Definitely! Just need some nice weather! x

  5. Oh gonna print this list out and give it to the kids and get them to mark off what they would like to do. Great idea!

    1. Ah thank you Kellie! Hope you have a great Summer x

  6. Great list of things to do, I need to sit down and write my bucket list for the summer holidays. I think it makes you more focused! Have a great summer

  7. great list. I really need to put a summer 'bucket' list together as I find that the school holidays can just fly by x

  8. Unfortunately there are only limited things we can do in the town we live in. But luckily this will change because we are moving to a more commute area in 2 months time. I can't wait. There are so many things to do for the kids I don't even know where to start.

  9. Some great things on here I will do some with my grandchildren
