Summer Fun Chart!


I’m excited to share my SUMMER FUN CHART again this year. This is the 4th year i’ve been doing this with my kids and it’s really a tool my me AND the kids. I love that it reminds us of the things we might want to do this summer and it also gives us so many options so nobody can EVER say that they are board. I start the list in early Spring and anytime I think of a new idea, I add it to my Summer Google Doc and eventually I have a full list. I also look at the list from last year and pull in a bunch of things we want to try again.

This is the list I came up with for our family:

  1. Start a list in early Spring or look at other lists on Pinterest and add the idea that interest you to yours. Look at other lists to get ideas. If you did a summer list in previous years, look at the things you enjoyed and add them.
  2. Add tons of ideas even if you think you may not do them. It’s better to have more than less ideas so you can have a variety of choices throughout the summer.
  3. When you do the particular activities, check them off on your list and write the date.
  4. At the end of the summer, take a picture of your list with all the dates or save it. My is large so I just take a picture of it. If you are really a go-getter, make a coffee table book of your summer adventures.

  1. I need to do this with my little one. Although I don’t know how much we will get done. I work full time & he will be in camp. It’s still feasible to do a bunch of stuff tho.

  2. Love the list! When I click “download” I only get your completed list. Is there a way to download the blank list and add my own summer fun?

  3. I keep trying to download your fun charts and they aren’t working?? Could you send me the file for the 2011 one? Or do you have a 2014 one?
