The Ultimate Family Bucket List For a Summer Spent at Home
Just because much of this summer is likely going to be spent at home, doesn't mean it can't be a summer to remember! Every year, we like to come up with a family bucket list to cross off as the warm months unfold, so this year, we're bringing you a special *mostly* at-home version of our list. Screen-grab it, print it out, rewrite it on giant paper — whatever works — and hang it up somewhere if you want your kids to be able to help you cross the outdoor and indoor activities out as you work your way through.
If you're racking your brain for ideas to keep your kids happy and busy this summer, look no further than the ideas below. Wishing you a summer filled with sunshine-soaked memories and lots of smiles, from our family to yours.
