turtleIt’s summertime. Time for adventure, exploring and making new memories. Start summer off with a fun bucket list created by the whole family and get ready to have some fun.

Let’s make a summer bucket list

Bucket list items don’t have to be crazy or expensive, in fact many times they can be simple pleasures or excursions that you just don’t always do; this is what makes them fun.

Gather the family and start to make a wish list of items the kids and you want to do. This can be written on a piece a paper and posted on the refrigerator or you can make it a big poster that you let the kids decorate after with stickers and little drawings.

Once you have your list, it’ll act as a guide on what do during those long summer days. Let the kids pick one a day or other days you can surprise them.

To make things even more fun, you could write your list on popsicle sticks. On each popsicle stick write one bucket list item. Throw the sticks into a jar and each day when you are trying to figure out what to do, pull out a popsicle stick and ta-dah, that’s the days fun bucket list item.

Need a little inspiration for your bucket list? Here are some items to get you started.

1. Watch the planes take off at Kahului or Kapalua airport (or a nearby location)
