Every season I create a bucket list of family activities, and I've really enjoyed the experiences the boys and I have had in doing so. Oftentimes on a day on which we have no plans, I'll just take a quick glance at what's left on our bucket list, pick something, and go for it! A lot of times our activities I probably wouldn't have thought of if I hadn't taken the time to create a list in the first place.
So now we're at spring. Just like with the other seasons, I tried to include things that were quintessential spring. However, I did not include things on our list that we would likely do frequently-namely parks in this case. I created festive cards, printed up each activity on one, and then put them on a cookie sheet turned magnetic board.
Once we complete an activity, it comes down. Pretty simple, huh?
Since you probably can't actually read the cards, here's a quick run down of our Spring bucket list:
*dye easter eggs *egg hunt *make chocolate-peanut butter eggs *eat matzo brei
*feed ducks *play in the rain *Grommet Park *boardwalk (before all the tourists get here)
*strawberry picking *fizzing sidewalk art *ride the Tide *Botanical Gardens *zoo
*paddle boating *grass heads *have a picnic *fly a kite *Nauticus *go fishing
*golf course *plant a seed *go to an outdoor festival *have a cookout *dog park visit
I'm hoping if we get started maybe Spring will respond by actually showing up! Can you all think of anything I've missed?
