Doodles’ 100 Days of Summer Bucket List – 100 summer activities for kids

Update:  As we have been on holidays for over a month at this stage, I thought that this would be a good opportunity to cross of what we have done to date (full list below in a graphic)!  We have been very busy!

Also, this morning the lovely Lindsey at 101thingstodowithkids mentioned me in her post about her summer list. She also included Ali’s bucket list from My Life. My Love – if you get a chance, take a look at their great lists as well as their fantastic blogs.  Ali includes a gorgeous pledge to her family about making this summer a special and meaningful one.

Doodles finished preschool today and he is so excited to be on his summer holidays.  Over the last few days he has helped me to compile a list of everything he wants to do this summer.  Most of the items on the list are suitable for all kids, everywhere.  One or two of the activities are specific to our locality and the trips we are taking this summer as a family.
