We just welcomed in summer with the official beginning on June 21st. Why not take this opportunity to make yourself a bucket list of things to try that you never have, at least not during your adult life. You can even mix it up with some activities to do alone or with your kids. Here are a few ideas to help get you started with your summer bucket list.
Run Through the Sprinkler
Put on your bathing suit and run through the sprinklers. Just turn on the sprinkler and proceed to run through over and over again while feeling the wet grass beneath your bare feet.
Build a Sand Castle
Get yourself some castle making molds, pick a spot where the sand is moist but not too wet, and get to work on your masterpiece. When it’s done, take a photo from a worm’s eye view.
Geocaching is an outdoor recreational activity in which participants use a GPS receiver like a Garmin Vivoactive GPS Smartwatch from Buydig.com and other navigational techniques to look for containers called “geocaches”. It’s a sport that combines technology and adventure. Once you find the container you log in your visit and you have the option of trading one of the “goodies” in the container with one of your own. Just visit geocaching.com to participate.
Ride a Ferris Wheel
Go to a county fair at least once during the summer and ride the Ferris Wheel. When you get to the highest point of the Ferris wheel, take a selfie and send it to all your friends.
Go on a Road Trip
Go on a road trip, preferably in a convertible. Plan a trip ahead of time, or simply hit the open road and see where it takes you. If you don’t own a convertible you can always rent one for the weekend.
Make Homemade Ice Cream
Use the Cuisinart Frozen Yogurt and Ice Cream Maker from Buydig.com to make some of the many recipes you can find for making your own ice cream at home. It’s so easy, you’ll never want to shop for ice cream at the store again.
Have a Sleepover
Slumber parties aren’t just for pre-teens and teenagers. You’re never too old to have a sleepover! Have a girl’s night with your besties, or a family reunion of sorts with your cousins. Stay up all night watching movies and reminiscing about the slumber parties you had as a kid.
Leave the worries of the office far behind and spend the weekend in the great outdoors with just yourself, a tent and Mother Nature. Make sure you go tech-free and leave your electronics at home.
There are an endless number of activities you can add to your summer bucket list. Hopefully these will give you some ideas, or at least inspire you to make your own.
