Summer Fun Checklist Update

Back in June, we made up a Summer Fun Checklist with all sorts of fun activities and outings to fill our summer days.  Well, with only two weeks now until school starts back up again, I'm happy to say that we've been able to cross off quite a few things. 



Look at all the things we've crossed off our list (and many of the others we're doing soon):

  • Go to the ZOO
  • Swim in the POOL
  • Hike to a WATERFALL
  • Make GAK (recipe here)
  • Do a SCIENCE EXPERIMENT (see it here)
  • Play in the SPRINKLER (see it here)
  • Go FISHING
  • Have a SPONGEBALL FIGHT (directions here)
  • Go BOWLING
  • Bake COOKIES (easy recipe here)
  • Go to the BUTTERFLY GARDEN (see our trip here)
  • Jump off the DIVING BOARD
  • Mail a LETTER
  • Go to HERSHEY PARK
  • Play with SIDEWALK PAINT (recipe here)
  • Pick FRUIT (here)
  • Go to the LIBRARY
  • Make PLAY DOUGH (recipes here and here)
  • Paddle a KAYAK
  • Go to IKEA
  • Make a CLUBHOUSE
  • Go CAMPING
  • Go to a SANDY BEACH
  • Go on a HIKE
  • Go to WASHINGTON, DC
  • Try a NEW FOOD (from this cool cookbook)
  • Go to THE COW (awesome local italian ice stand)
  • Catch LIGHTNING BUGS (see our cool jar here)
  • Play with BUBBLES ( see here, here and here)
  • Go to the PLAYGROUND ( here or here)
  • Do a 1,000 PIECE PUZZLE
  • Have a SLEEPOVER
  • Make ICE CREAM
  • Go to CHUCK E. CHEESE
  • Go to a BASEBALL GAME
  • Play a BOARD GAME
  • Go to a MOVIE THEATRE
  • Have a LEMONADE STAND
  • Go to DELAWARE
  • Have a PICNIC
  • Go NIGHT SWIMMING
  • Go to PITTSBURGH
  • Have a PLAYDATE
  • Go see FIREWORKS
  • Do a CRAFT PROJECT
  • Make POPSICLES
  • Eat BREAKFAST for DINNER
  • Make S'MORES  
Just today, we were able to check off "Do a 1,000 PIECE PUZZLE".  I'd picked up  THIS United States of America puzzle  and it was the perfect "hard" puzzle for us to tackle.  It had so many fun images and details about the U.S., that we were able to look at the box cover and get a good idea where each piece would go.  My oldest daughter really enjoyed working on it with me (the other two helped a little bit) and it only took us a couple days.  We plan on using some puzzle saver glue on it, putting it in a frame and displaying it in the playroom.

  11. Hi Nicole,

    Here's the link to the original post I did on the checklist. Basically, I just came up with a list of ideas, wrote them on scrapbook paper, stuck on a few stickers and put them in an old frame with a glass front. We could check off each thing with a dry erase marker on the glass. http://www.cometogetherkids.com/2011/06/summer-fun-checklist.html
