Printable Summer Bucket List of Fun Activities For Bored Kids

Summer is in the air and kids everywhere are already dreaming about the long care-free days that will soon be upon them.

But as we all know, those carefree days can turn into long boring days pretty quickly, and we will all be searching for summer activities for bored kids in, let's say, about a week after summer vacation starts!

So my boys and I decided to brainstorm and come up with ideas to keep kids busy this summer. We ended up with a pretty cool list of 50 free fun things kids can do at home in the summer, so be sure to check it out below. 

I also took some of those ideas and made two summer bucket list printables for kids you can download! 

Download and print the blank list so kids can write down their own ideas, or print out the list that already has awesome summer activities for kids already printed on it. Or just get both!
