Kids Summer Bucket List

Fun in the Sun: Ultimate Summer Bucket List for Your Kiddos to Enjoy This Season!

The summer is officially upon us, and what better way to celebrate the season than with some endless fun in the sun for your kiddos! As a children’s boutique, we know how important it is to keep your little ones entertained and active during the warmer months! That's why we've created the ultimate summer bucket list filled with exciting things to do that will surely make this summer one to remember! Whether you’re planning a family vacation or looking for entertaining things to do at home, we've got you covered with these simple yet fun-filled activities that everyone can enjoy together!

1. Make Ice Cream Sundaes!

You scream, we scream, we all scream for ice cream! Help your kiddos celebrate this summer and beat the season's heat with some ice cream sundae fun! Set up a sundae bar with various flavors, toppings, and sauces with a cherry on top! Let your kiddos create their own delicious masterpieces, piling on sprinkles, gummy bears, and chocolate chips! You can even add a splash of fun with colorful bowls and spoons to make their sundaes even more exciting! Don’t forget to snap a photo of their sweet creations before they disappear! 

Pro Tip: Have your kiddos use paper plates underneath so the sprinkle fun doesn’t get everywhere, and use a plastic tablecloth for a quick and easy clean-up! 

2. Enjoy Fun-Filled Water Festivities!

After your little ones cool down with ice cream treats, continue to escape the hot summer sun with fun-filled water festivities! Whether it’s swimming at the pool or enjoying the day at the splash pad, there are many ways to enjoy water activities! Here are a few of our favorites that will surely have your kiddos asking for more this Summer! 

DIY Water Games:

Hot Potato using Water Balloons: This is like the classic hot potato game but with an added wet twist! Instead of using the music to guide you, pinch a tiny hole in the water balloon and let the water decide for you! If you really want to make it interesting, have the last person with the water balloon pop a new one over their head, or use a bucket for a soaking good ‘ol time! 

Water Balloon Pinata: String a colorful array of filled-up water balloons from a tree in the backyard and use them as pinatas! Blindfold your kiddos and spin them around, and then watch as the splashes unfold with giggles and glee – a refreshing twist on classic pinata fun!

Water Balloon Dodgeball: If you want to add an element of friendly competition and amp up the excitement, this is a great game for the older kids to play! Instead of using regular dodgeballs, use water balloons and let the fun begin! 

Pro-Tip: When soaking up the water-balloon fun, make sure to dedicate clean-up time so everyone pitches in to tidy up the yard! 

Pool Games & Swimming: 

If you have a pool, you can take the water festivities one step further by setting up games such as a splashing contest, sharks or Minos, pool volleyball, or just classic swimming fun! To keep the excitement flowing, try adding fun pool accessories such as noodles or inflatable beach balls! 

Create Slip-in-Sliding Fun:

If you don’t have a pool, try making your own slip-and-slide out of tarps and garbage bags, or head to your local splash pad! Regardless of how you enjoy the water, as long as everyone is happy and hydrated, that’s all that matters! 

3. Plan a Beach Day!

If you live near a beach and want to get away for the day, pack up your sunscreen, towels, bathing suits, accessories, and beach toys and head to the nearest shore! Start by building sandcastles, collecting seashells, and enjoying swim time in the refreshing water! You can even set up a scavenger hunt for your kiddos, hiding fun things in the sand for them to find. After a long day playing at the beach, try having a picnic by the water, capturing all the fun moments with some candid beachside family photos!  

4. Go on a Bike Riding Adventure

If you don’t have a shore nearby, you can enjoy your local scenery by hitting the trails and cruising around the neighborhood on a family bike ride! This not only helps your kiddos get exercise for the summer but is also a great way to enjoy family time together! No matter your age or level of skill set, you always want to ensure you’re protected when biking wearing helmets and breathable activewear for a comfortable ride. If you’re planning on going far, make sure to pack snacks and water to stay hydrated and keep energized! 

5. Set up Backyard Camping

After a long day of outdoor biking and adventure, you can set up a tent in the backyard and continue the fun with a camping experience without leaving home! This makes for a fun and convenient way of camping, turning your own backyard into a camping ground! Make sure to tell stories around the campfire, partake in s’mores, and gaze up at the stars! To keep your little campers cozy and comfortable all night long, dress them up in snug pajamas from your favorite kid’s boutique online! Don’t forget the warm blankets and flashlights for all your late-night shenanigans and ghost-story adventures!  

6. Outdoor Movie Night

Another convenient way to enjoy the great outdoors is under the big screen! Create a fun movie experience from the comfort of your backyard by setting up a cozy outdoor movie theater using a projector and white screen, allowing your kiddos to enjoy family favorites under the stars! Have the whole family dress up in comfy loungewear to ensure everyone is cozy and relaxed while enjoying the show! You can even tie fairy lights around the trees to help create a magical backyard ambiance! Don’t forget the candy and popcorn for a true movie theater experience! 

At Simply Blessed Kids, we believe every summer should be filled with unforgettable moments and endless joy! That’s why we have everything you need for your kiddos to stay stylish and comfortable while enjoying their summer adventures! We hope that you enjoy these fun-filled activities as much as we do and want to ensure your summer bucket list is perfectly filled with sunny days and endless play!
