SUMMER FUN BUCKETS!
Raise your hands in the air if school is almost out!!!! Not every location gets out of school before Memorial Day, but here in our world, we kick off summer at the end of May and SUMMER VACAY begins!
As a busy mom who doesn't always get things right, there is one thing I get right - OUR SUMMER FUN BUCKET TRADITION! It's true, this one family tradition levels me up to SUPER STAR MOM STATUS at the beginning of every summer.
I love family traditions, they give you an opportunity to make the ordinary extraordinary. Traditions give us all something to look forward to and make each of us feel pretty special.
Our Summer Fun Buckets have changed from year to year. When my kiddos were younger they were filled with Water toys, floaties, Bubble Blowers and Glow Sticks - all the fun things you can use to celebrate summer. My kids are now 13 and 15 so the contents have changed but the idea remains the same. Add items that will spark creativity, give us the opportunity to celebrate summer moments together and make my kids feel special.
Summer Fun Buckets don't have to be expensive. All you need is a bucket - some Simply Said Vinyl (to add your kiddos names) and some summer goodies inside that your kids will use throughout the summer.
Here is what I'll be putting in our Summer Fun Buckets this year.
- New Summer Swim Suits
- Concert Tickets to a local outdoor concert that we all love
- New Beach Towel
- Lip Savers
- Camp Chairs
- New Summer Outfit
- New Summer Sandals
- Deck of cards
- Lastly a checklist of activities we plan to do this summer.
We hope this inspires you for some SUMMER FUN this year!
