So it just took me three hours to go over our paper calendar that will run my life this summer! I registered for one camp for two kids, figured out payments for daycare for two other kids, and scheduled four other weeks out of camps. Had to figure out when our summer sport schedule starts and when that will fit in the mix to top it off. Miraculously we have two family vacations worked in there, and some random free Saturdays and Sundays. Beach, trips to Central New York, a half marathon, Hershey park, Storyland, Edaville – these are all on my possibles list. I was forwarded a great bucket list of things to do with kids in my area and it is HUGE! There are some great ideas on the list, and so I am sharing it with you today. If you have any other ideas for me – especially inexpensive ones, I am open ears!
Here are just the first 13 edited to apply to everyone, from 365 Things to do in Southshore Massachusetts. Definitely look at their link for the full listing because if you are from ANYWHERE, USA many of the items on their Bucket List are universal!
