A Toddler’s Summer Bucket List

Posted on Jun 19 2013 - 7:00am by Markell


I have a two year old and a one year old. On top of that, I babysit a 10 month old full time. It’s great. I love it. Keeping those kids busy can be a little tough though! I decided to make a quick list of things I can do with them when were bored one summer day. If you click the link under it, you can download it to have for your own. toddlerbucketlistcopy

    Great list! This is my son's "first" summer. Really, his second one, but his first one where he old enough to play and enjoy activities. I hope we can try all of these!

    Thanks for linking up at the TGIF link party last week! A lot of people have been pinning this from my link party board, I think you helped a lot of parents fill some boring days! I hope you'll stop by tonight and link up again!

    Have a great day!

    Hey there! Visiting you from the Friday Follow Along Party Blog Hop. Love this bucket list! I have a 14 month old and I feel like he is in that in between phase for doing certain things some people suggest with crafts and things because he still puts everything in his mouth. You have some things we've tried and some things we haven't so I definitely downloaded the sheet. Thank you so much for that! I hope you enjoy your weekend and happy friday!! <3

      Thanks for stopping by! I agree that a lot of the ideas out there just aren't good for little ones. I tried playdough the other day with my 13 month old and it did not end well… luckily it was homemade playdough so no harm done.

      Let me know how it goes! It's tough to entertain kids in the summer months, huh?

    That is a great list. We made one too. I made mine geared mostly towards my 4 year old and the 1 year old will just have to tag along and have fun too! thanks for sharing at the Friday Follow Along. Hope to see you again at http://www.leahinspired.com

    Any way to correct the misspelled word – Baseball! ??

      Ah Tracey! I didn't even realize that I had misspelled that word! I don't even have a computer with photoshop at the moment so I can't even fix it right now. I will as soon as I can though! Thanks for pointing that out to me.
