Printable Summer Bucket List Ideas

Summers are fun and should be about trying new things and creating tradition with old favorites

After our girls learned how to fish recently I thought ‘this is great, having the kids learn new things outside’.

Indeed summer should be about being outside as much as possible.

Living in the Canadian mountains makes outdoor adventures easy here, but no matter where you live, you can make the most out of summer. I encourage you to try local seasonal foods, look up local markets and festivals, enjoy your town like a tourist, cool down in water and enjoy wild adventures in nature.
