Ultimate Summer Bucket List – For Toddlers

To be honest I have never been a fan of summer. I would do anything and everything I could to be able to stay home and be comfortable in my nice air-conditioned house. My son, Gavin was born June 2016. It made summers better for me, with the excuse that babies shouldn’t be outside in the heat.

Then Gavin turned one… And everything changed. He found this new love for exploring outside, looking at animals and picking up every little leaf. ( He Definitely got this from his dad). Seeing him laugh and have so much fun was great. Especially since he wasn’t watching T.V or playing with the same old toys.


Summer didn’t feel as bad anymore. We went on to have a great summer, even though we never left our front yard. Gavin was just learning to walk at this point.

Forward to June 2018 – Gavin just turned two! –In a year he went from learning to walk to running everywhere – His love for being outdoors has grown. My son is so wild and a total BOY. p.s – they love to be dirty all the time. I hope you enjoy giving multiple baths each day as much as I do.

I’ve learned to put my differences with “summer” aside to make this the best summer for my little man! We have already crossed off so many fun activities so far.  Including: Swimming at our community pool and our own little deck pool.  Going to the park. Going to the zoo. Buying new outdoor toys. And simply playing in our front yard.

I thought the perfect way to get this month started was to make a Toddler’s Summer Bucket list. – I know Gavin will love these and hope your children enjoy too!

  1. Go swimming.

2. Go to the park.

3. Have a family ice cream date.

4. Go to the pond and feed the ducks.

5. Visit the splash park.

6. Play with all the bubbles, chalk, and sidewalk paint.

7. Have a family picnic.

8. Visit the zoo.

9. Go see fireworks.

10. Go to the state fair.

15. Have a BBQ.

16. Play outside.

17. Watch fireflies.

18. Play in the sand.

20. Go to the local farmers market. Okay this one may be for us moms, we all know kids don’t like veggies. But they will still have fun going outside and walking around. 

21. Movie night.

22. Go camping.

23. Have a mini bonfire – Don’t forget the S’mores.

24. Go to the library and read some books. – It’s a fun way for kids to learn while having fun.

25. Look for bugs with a microscope.

26. Play with glow sticks.

27. Buy a butterfly garden.

28. Watch Scooby Doo. (Totally had to add this – Gavin found this movie on Netflix and is obsessed, Definitely a childhood favorite of mine.)

29. Have a dance party.

30. Enjoy summer, have no worries. – Toddlers don’t.
