June 20, 2012

Macaroni Fun!

I saw this idea on the side of a Chick-Fil-A Kid's Meal bag and thought it would be a fun way to remember to do everything the kids want to do this summer. The craft was for a bucket list, but we decided to make it a Summer Bucket List. Now it will be a family tradition each summer!
I went to the dollar store and bought everything we needed:

    Small bucket
    Clothes pins
    Sharpie

Total cost was $3 plus tax!

Ask the children what they would like to do this summer and write each answer on a clothes pin.
Here are a few items we wrote down:

    Beach Day
    Picnic at the park
    Roller skating
    Bowling
    Host a pool party
    Go on a hike
    Disneyland

Each time you do something listed on a clothes pin, you drop it in the bucket! Enjoy!

Have your say
