Summer Bucket List for Preschoolers

A blue child's bucket with yellow spade inside it on a wet sandy beach

Now that we are in June, I decided to make a list of all the fun things I would like to do with J this year and so I have created a summer bucket list. A couple of the activities we did last year and they were such a hit that they had to make it onto this year’s list. However, most of these activities are new and I can’t wait to get out and about with J having fun in the sun. I have purposely chosen activities which are mostly available locally to me but you could easily adapt them to your area too. I have also ensured that most of my summer bucket list ideas are not too expensive to make this more achievable.

1. Strawberry picking
2. Dinner at the beach
3. Camping
4. Growing a plant
5. Paddling pool fun
6. Visit a splash park
7. Play in the river
8. Ride on an open top bus
9. Take a train to the New Forest for a picnic
10. Go on a family bike ride
11. Play crazy golf
12. Go on a boat trip   A green tent on a hill overlooking water. The sun is setting over a distant hill.
13. Visit somewhere new (ideally Thomas Land at Drayton Manor)
14. Complete a scavenger hunt
15. Go to a different country in the UK (we went to Wales at the weekend, so I am ticking this one off already)


Will you add some of these to your summer bucket list?

  1. We used to go strawberry picking as children – I’m pretty sure we ate more than we put in the punnets!! We’re going to Drayton Manor next weekend I’ll let you know what it is like 😀

    1. Oh no! How frustrating. Strawberry picking is still all good here. They didn’t have it running a couple of weeks ago so hopefully it is now. How frustrating about the boat. Glad you got to visit somewhere new though.
