Free Printable Summer Bucket List To Help Get The Kids More Active

A printable Summer bucket list is the perfect way to get kids outdoors and more active.

With school out, it can be hard to get the kids out of the house (it seems like that in our area anyway). It’s like as the kids get older, there aren’t many that enjoy going outside to play anymore.

Video games seem to be all kids really want to do this Summer. Granted, there are a lot of kids that do enjoy the sunshine and don’t like to be cooped up inside all Summer. Which I certainly encourage!

I remember not being able to play many video games at all during the Summer. We lived in the country and had to find ways to entertain ourselves. So, my brother and I would run around the yard for hours making our own outdoor games, swinging, climbing trees, walking through the woods to find rocks, and making our own binoculars to play with.

But what do you do when your child just wants to sit inside all day and not enjoy the outdoors?

Give them this printable Summer Bucket List!

Go on! You may get a funny look when you hand this to your child. Or the dreaded “ugh!” sound, but it’ll be worth it! They’ll thank you later.

There are a lot of fun activities they can do on this checklist. There is even a section where they can list other things they’d like to do this Summer, activities that aren’t listed.


As you can see there are a lot of activities that involve kids getting out of the house and enjoying the warm weather. There are also tasks that will help them with chores and getting involved with the community by volunteering.

A few items on the list include Summer crafts, which can be such a fun experience for kids. It’ll help them learn (even though they won’t know they’re learning), it will encourage creativity, and giving them hands-on experience with building and creating different things.
