Your Bucket List for Summer

Warm weather and clear skies invite us to stop and rethink, to insert some joy and adventure into our routines. And though many years may have passed since we had long breaks between school years, there’s always that part of us that remembers when summer used to last forever. When a thrilling sense of escape, freedom, reinvention and fun used to ride into town with those bright summer rays. 

So here’s a bucket list for summer for all ages, from toddlers to teens, youngsters to oldies and everything in between. Challenge yourself, surprise yourself. And above all, have fun!

Why have a summer bucket list?

Why have a summer bucket list to begin with? Because life can pass us by so easily if we’re not paying attention. It’s fun to celebrate the seasons and to challenge ourselves by doing something different. 

Plus, in the heat of the moment (badoom!) it’s easy to forget what you meant to do and slip into a TV routine instead.

A bucket list makes a note of what’s important. And that includes slowing down, too. This bucket list isn’t just about filling every minute with non-stop activities. It’s about taking the time to stop and savour your one and only life!

Oh, and if the phrase bucket list annoys you? Just think of it another way. It’s just a collection of ideas and suggestions of fun things to do in the summer. Summer activities for all ages. Fun in the summer. Summer fun. Easy enough!

How to make your summer bucket list

There are over 101 different ideas on this summer bucket list. A bucket list for the summer is supposed to be fun and inspirational, not another to do list or borderline torture device.

The best bucket lists are full of activities that you long to do, feel a bit nervous about doing… and not a lot else!

So, by all means download this summer bucket list. But wherever possible, create your own one. Ask yourself, what are some things I could add to my summer bucket list?

  • Personal is best. I’ve added in alternatives wherever possible. For example, the perfect bucket list for summer for a toddler may involve feeding the ducks. For adults, you may want more adventurous wildlife exploits! Instead, try to see an endangered species or capture a wildlife action shot on your camera. Or go birdwatching at night and see if you can spot an owl.
  • Floating boats can involve folded paper for toddlers and actual boat rides for grown ups and families. Use the ideas on this bucket list for summer to spark your imagination rather than to hem you in. And relish your own summer bucket list.

The Ultimate Summer Bucket List

With over 120 serious and fun activities, we’re calling this the ultimate summer bucket list! I’ve grouped some of the categories together to help you skim read. But don’t forget, you can download the list as a free printable to make life easier too. 

So, whether you’re using this as a kids summer bucket list, the best summer bucket list for teens, a quarantine summer bucket list or one just for grown ups, now is the perfect time to start. Let’s go!

Your Outdoor Summer Bucket List

Fill your list with games and outdoor activities and make the most of the good weather.

Visit the sea

Surely all summer bucket lists have the seaside on them somewhere! Nothing says summer more than splashing on sunscreen and paddling in the sea. Or, wrapping up warm and bracing your body against the wind if you live in Northern Europe. 

Either way, Vitamin Sea will make you feel better. Get there!

Find a fountain

Find me a fountain that lives in an ugly spot and I’ll find you a child who doesn’t like ice cream. Challenge yourself to find a new fountain in your area. Once found, pretend you’re in Rome with a gelato and read a paperback book at a cafe.

Get soaked in a splash pad

These aren’t just for kids (although it does make it more socially acceptable.) More and more places in the world are creating splash pads for summer and it’s easy to see why. It’s fun!

Float boats along the river

Start with origami paper boats, progress to models and then potentially go all out and hire a boat for the afternoon. It’s one of my favourite summer things to do.

Find a lighthouse or a lake

Again, this depends on where you live but the quest to find both should lead you to some gorgeous summer activities. 

Watch fireworks

The UK may reserve its fireworks for Guy Fawkes in November and then the cold of New Year’s Eve but plenty of other countries have summer firework displays. And if yours doesn’t? Set one up yourself!

Climb a mountain

Or at least a great big hill. Where I live, in Wales, big hills are called mountains, so this is, of course, easier…

Forage in a forest

Children can hunt for sticks, acorns, leaves and the like. Or adults can lay out a treasure hunt or scavenger hunt in the forest for them. For teens and adults, you can actually take courses on foraging for mushrooms, truffles and edible plants. 

Build a den

Again, this can range from throwing a blanket over a few chairs in your back garden for young kids to going all out and building a treehouse from scratch. Or booking a campsite and sleeping beneath the stars. Get creative this summer!

Go birdwatching

For toddlers, arrange bird feeders outside windows so that you have a chance of spotting the birds away from the toddler noise! For older kids, set up a lookout at home or travel to birdwatching areas. Remember not to wear bright colours and to stay quiet and still. 

Keep a hiking journal

More than just a travel diary, why not start a hiking journal with your kids? It’s a great way to explore, whether near or far, and the activities and templates will help to give you ideas when inspiration fails.

Your Foodie Summer Bucket List

Have a barbecue

Nothing says summer quite like a barbecue! It’s an essential part of any bucket list for summer. You can mix things up, though, by trying new recipes and marinades and getting the whole family to pitch in.

Have a picnic

Likewise, picnics can be snatch and grab sandwich affairs or more elaborate events with delicatessen style snacks, linen tablecloths and luxury hampers. Experiment with your style and see what works best outside the house.

Make smores

If you haven’t heard of smores then you’ve missed out on so much fun! They’re a combination of a biscuit, chocolate and marshmallow. However, the real magic occurs when you melt the marshmallow around a camp fire. The secret involves finding the critical point between gently oozing and black and ruined. And as they say, practice makes perfect…

Bake something new

Baking in summer? Sure, if you live in a hot country, this is a bad idea. Try a new salad instead. But for those of us in, how shall we put it? More temperate climates, freshly baked bread or biscuits can save the rainy day.

Try a recipe from three different places around the world

And I have lots of ideas! Try these three easy recipes from the Borneo rainforest. Or a real ragu, Italian style. And finally, how about these traditional recipes from Jordan.

Decorate a cake

Or twenty! Either go all out on one big cake, or turn your hand to decorating cupcakes this year. Here are some cake decorating ideas to get you started.

Take a cooking lesson

Long-time readers will know that I’m a huge fan of cooking courses as a way to meet people and learn about a culture, as well as food, when on the road. But even if you’re at home, you can add a cooking lesson to your bucket list for summer.

Visit a farmer’s market

Check out the timetables and get yourself to a farmer’s market (or even a village fayre if they still have one!) Look out for fresh and local food produce and, you guessed it, try something new.

Visit a deli and pick something new

Do you ever feel shy when shopping a deli? I know I shouldn’t feel that way, but often, I do. So, for this bucket list for summer, challenge yourself to get talking to the person behind the counter. And buy and try something new. 

Visit a farm and buy something direct

There’s something really special about buying food on the very spot where it was produced. From fresh strawberries to honey and lumpy, bumpy root vegetables, the fresher and more local the better. Get searching!

Summer bucket list ideas - colouring pencils and toddler creating

A Creative Summer Bucket List

Print out those photos and put them in an album!

Yes! Finally! Do it! And if you don’t fancy actually printing them out and sticking them in one by one, you can always arrange them online and then order a print book. Photobox is one such company that makes this easy.

Make an ornament for your home

You can choose from pottery and vases to dreamcatchers and mobiles and more. Just get creative and decorate your home at the same time.

Draw or paint on location

If it was good enough for the world’s top artists, it’s good enough for you! Pack an artist’s satchel with charcoal or pastels and head to a beautiful landscape spot. Set up your easel and create! Nervous and not sure where to start? Check out these drawing ideas for beginners.

Head to an art museum and try to copy one of the artworks

Yep! Cosy up like an art student and try to copy one of those famous works. It will train your eye and focus your mind – and lead to a better appreciation of all art.

Make a homemade gift for someone who’s had a tough year

Everyone’s had it tough over the last few years but some have had it tougher than others. Whether jam is your jam, or quilts or potted plants, make something, anything and give the gift of thoughtfulness.

Try mindful colouring

Not heard of mindful colouring? It’s for grown ups, as well as children, and involves intricate designs in black and white. It’s supposed to engage your brain enough, but not too much, to give it a break. 

Here’s a mindful colouring book for children and here’s one for adults.

Take a wood carving lesson

Wood carving is a fantastic idea for a summer bucket list as it combines creativity with nature and focus outdoors. Very young children can use something like plasticine but adults can take a lesson and strip that bark!

Make paper planes and race them with a friend

Easily done and lots of fun. For all ages. How far will yours go?

Sew something

Anything! Seriously, anything from mending a button on a shirt to designing and creating an entire travel wardrobe. Small hands can easily make felt hand bags, while adults can finally get to grips with a sewing machine – or else take up knitting in a hammock outdoors. 

Make a bird feeder

Not only is this fun to make but it’s also cool to see the wildlife you can attract to your garden. Find a bird feeder recipe right here.

A People Based Summer Bucket List

Tell everyone you love that you love them

It doesn’t get much easier than this, right? But sometimes, the days pass into weeks or even years and we haven’t actually said the words out loud. Whether you have total freedom or whether you’re in the midst of a crazy busy season of life, you can always find a way to do this. 

Spend time with old friends

Pretend to be young again or simply catch up. Or take a trip with them to a famous place like London and stay in one of the English capital’s finest luxury vacation rentals.

Make a gift for someone you care about

It doesn’t have to be grand but every little gift makes a big impression.

Take road trip with someone or to someone

Road trips aren’t just for teens! Load up on your road trip essentials, enjoy this road trip planner and get out and explore. With someone or to see someone.

Throw a party!

Food, drink, music, decorations, done! Time to add a fiesta onto your summer bucket list.

Draw around each other with chalk

Make your own crime scene or else decorate your chalk shadows as clowns. 

Have a fancy dress night

Run with a theme, like pop stars or superheroes, or just completely go with the flow. Summer bucket list idea for teens? Dig out your parents’ clothes from when they were young and crank up the tunes from the good old days. 

Go wine tasting

Now, there are several ways you can do this. You can head off to a vineyard and take part in an in situ wine tasting. You can book a virtual wine tasting online and be sent the wine by post. Or you can head to the supermarket and create a DIY version. Looking for a non-alcoholic version for kids or teens? Create mocktails or try olive oil tasting online instead.

Make a water slide with someone

One large sheet of plastic, some washing up liquid, a hose and a slope. Job done!

Create a TikTok dance with someone

Yes, I know. I cringe as I type this. But often, the sillier the idea, the more fun you can have. Round up a friend or your kids and put together your first TikTok move.

A Nature Based Summer Bucket List

Make a nature book

The simplest kind of nature book involves taking toddlers out and sellotaping their finds to the inside of an exercise book. For adults, you can get immersed in the intricate world of flower pressing.

Plant seeds

Whether you plan on growing an entire vegetable patch or just want to start out with cress, planting seeds is a great addition to your bucket list for summer.

Pick up litter

Either join a community team litter pick or simply go for a walk in your local area, armed with a litter picker and rubbish bag. You can buy a simple litter picker here to protect your hands. As well as helping the environment, you’ll cheer people up and it’s a great ice breaker to get talking to people. Almost everyone stops and says thank you!

Fly a kite

Belt out your best Mary Poppins tunes and get ready to fly up to the highest height. Children will love it and adults will be kept busy as it’s much harder to do than it looks…

Try canyoning or coasteering

Canyoning is where you throw on a wetsuit and helmet and jump along ropes and rivers in a canyon. Coasteering is where you do the same kind of thing along the coast. Both are exhilarating and great fun. While you do need to go with a qualified instructor, both sports are open to beginners (but not suitable for preschool age children.)

Sleep beneath the stars

Grab a tent and spend the night camping and gazing at the stars. If that seems a little too, erm, rough and ready for your taste then try glamping instead. Swap the floor for a bed, an in built shower unit and even a hot tub but keep the part where you gaze at those stars. 

Make a treasure hunt

Choose a summer motif, like butterflies or Gojetter toys, and hide them around the place like an Easter egg hunt. For adults, you can make this more complicated, with clues and riddles and prizes.

Watch the clouds

Sometimes, the simplest ideas are the best. Take the time this summer to simply laze around and look at the clouds. Are they moving? What shapes can you see? 

Go geocaching

Geocaching is a great big treasure hunt for the digital age. Roam around the countryside, check out your compass skills and find hidden goods and challenges. Here’s a beginner’s guide to geocaching from the Ordnance Survey team.

Watch the sea go out

This is a pastime as old as time itself but that doesn’t make it any less effective. It’s remarkably soothing for the soul and can be enjoyed by every age. See also The Importance of Doing Nothing.

Contribution Based Summer Bucket List Ideas

Write a letter about a cause

One of the most powerful ways to bring about change is to put pen to paper. Or fingers to keyboard. Write to your local politician about the issues that bother you. Write to companies if you want them to change how they operate. Stand up for your beliefs by sitting down to write.

Find three greener ways to live

There’s always more we can do to live a greener life. Brainstorm ideas and choose three to turn into a reality this summer. Start with these guides on the benefits of sustainable travel and this one on how to have a sustainable beach trip.

Support a cause on social media

Supporting a cause or a business on social media may not feel like doing much. But every like, comment and share tells the algorithm that the message is important. By boosting messages in this way, more people will see them and more change will happen.

Visit someone lonely

The last few years have been some of the loneliest, surely, on record. As soon as guidelines allow, visit someone especially lonely and simply have a chat.

Donate some of your stuff

Clear out your clutter and donate or sell second hand. You may have just the thing that someone else is looking for. 

Learn First Aid

It’s a crucial skill that could save a life. What’s not to love?

Volunteer somewhere

Most areas are crying out for volunteers… To pick up litter, to help run soup kitchens, to offer tea and biscuits to victims of domestic violence. Start looking around and find the place for you. 

Buy some local produce

Buying local food means buying green food as you’ve instantly cut down on all those travel miles. Plus, whenever you buy from a small business, the owner does a dance inside ;-) 

Try random acts of kindness

Random acts of kindness can be great fun. Try paying for someone’s drink in the queue. Or cleaning up an area at the service station. Posting a thank you note to someone who has made a beautiful garden for the neighbourhood to enjoy. Find more random acts of kindness ideas here.

Send a friend a surprise card

Spread a little cheer this summer by simply popping a card in the post.

Summer bucket list ideas - musical instrument ideas in Latvia

Musical Summer Bucket List Ideas

Choose a theme song for summer

Cheesy? Maybe! Fun? Sure!

Browse through those Spotify lists and find yourself a summer bucket list song!

Look up the hits from the year you were born

Throw yourself a retro party with tunes from the days when you were a babe. You can always combine this with the fancy dress or costume idea as well.

Try out a musical instrument for the first time

Always been too nervous to play an instrument? It’s not reserved for children! Again, you can find online courses and tutorials for free or follow the traditional path and sign up for lessons from a local teacher.

Write your own lyrics for a song

Why not? Pick up a pen and pencil, get humming and get writing. Find ideas on how to unleash your creativity here.

Listen to one new song every day

It’s so easy to get stuck in a musical rut. Broaden your horizons by setting yourself a challenge for your summer bucket list this year. Each day, make sure to listen to something brand, spanking new. 

Play hits from your parents’ heyday

If you enjoyed heading to your own past, then have even more fun by looking up the hits from when your parents were young. You can do this with them, if possible, or by yourself. Nothing makes a connection quite like music does.

Listen to live music

Find live music wherever you can! On a street corner, in a bar, at an organised concert. Even an online Zoom has more energy than a recording.

Wherever you find live music, you find a reminder that we’re connected and that we’re all still alive.

Book tickets to a concert

Find somewhere (anywhere!) and book tickets for a concert. Not only will you help independent musicians survive, but you’ll also set your heart on fire, just a little bit.

Make a summer playlist

Summer time… And the living is easy… OK, so that’s a good start. How many others can you find? Studies show that scents and sounds help us remember things more easily. Wouldn’t it be great if years from now, one song reminded you of the great summer you had? Build those memories by adding a summer playlist to your summer bucket list.

Choose a new ringtone

In with the new, out with the old! It doesn’t have to be your theme tune for summer but why not find a new song to liven up your phone’s call?

Low Key and Snuggly Summer Bucket List Suggestions

Read a book

Or if that’s too easy, read ten. Fifteen?

Create a reading chart with fun targets for kids and a grown up version for adults. Many libraries run specific challenges during the holidays and it’s great for kids to have the independence to pick out what they like. 

Here’s an online summer reading list for kids of all ages and a reading list for adults. Happy reading!

Snuggle beneath a blanket and watch an outdoor film

Drive-thru if it’s available, or else turn your TV around…Movie night but more fun.

Make a cosy spot in your home

Take another look at your living space and make sure it has a cosy spot for reading. Think about cushions, soft but bright lighting and a light throw for bare summer feet. 

Get a giant blanket for snuggling

Lots of summer activities take place outdoors but in many parts of the world, the temperature drops as the sun goes down. Make sure you’re ready with a giant, snuggly blanket like this.

Laze in a hammock

If you live in a hammock place, this is easy. Simply plop yourself into one and watch the clouds float by overhead. If you’re in somewhere like Britain, this may be a harder trick to pull off. But keep exploring, keep looking. Or if all else fails, order a hammock from Amazon yourself.

Drink ginger tea

Or hibiscus tea. Or turmeric. Track down a different flavour and cheer yourself up on a cooler than hoped for summer’s day. Or, if it’s baking, try your hand at making iced tea instead.

Make cocktails

Summer is made for cocktails and if you have little ones then add mocktails to your summer bucket list of ideas. 

Make ice lollies

Fun to make, fun to eat, try lots of different colours and flavours and try different palettes like mint and elderflower for grown-up tastes.

Try darts

Darts. The summer sport! Takes minutes to set up and keeps everyone involved in a leisurely, laid back manner.

Write a poem

Close your eyes and let your creativity run free! Not happening? Check out our writing and creative resources to help you find inspiration.

Surf lesson pose - summer bucket list idea

Summer Bucket List Ideas to Get You Moving

Play volleyball at the beach

Round up some friends or make some at the beach and get jumping.

Rounders or cricket in the park

Americans have baseball but Brits have rounders. Try either or a game of cricket anywhere you can find a stretch of grass.

Try mini golf

Less daunting than the real thing, mini golf means that friends and children can join in as well.

Learn how to surf

It only takes a single lesson to get most people standing on a board and the sense of achievement is immense. If you’ve tried and failed before, it’s worth checking out the Ombe method: ocean, mind, body, equipment.

Try paddle boarding

A more sedate sport than surfing, paddle boarding works your core and allows you to take in the scenery. As long as you avoid choppy water, this is an easy access adventure for beginners.

Throw a frisbee around

Playing frisbee takes next to no preparation and can last for hours; the humble frisbee is a classic entry onto the summer bucket list of ideas.

Try yoga outdoors at sunrise

While it might take some effort to get up when it’s dark, the reward is completely worth it. Stretch and flex, breathe and ease your way into the day with a sun salutation just as the sun does actually come up. It’s blissful.

Learn some circus tricks

Perfect for taking your mind off any problems, learning circus tricks outside is a great summer bucket list idea. Try juggling, tightrope walking, unicycling and more. Sign up for lessons or else get your DIY on with a YouTube tutorial.

Watch Someone Else Play Sport

Ah, the classic summer sport of, well, watching sport. But if spending all day in front of the TV doesn’t appeal (and it doesn’t to me) then head to a real match or game outdoors and soak up the atmosphere. It doesn’t have to be grand, although it can be. You can also just take a picnic and watch a local village play.

Kayak somewhere

Kayaking is a great way to explore the coastline. Plus, if you’re quiet, seals may swim up to you. It’s not suitable for very young children, though, which you may need to bear in mind.

Travel Themed Ideas for Your Summer Bucket List

Depending on your season of life, travel may not be possible. But if it is, check out this family travel bucket list and the ideas below:

Travel by train somewhere new

It’s different arriving by train than by car. You see a different side of places. If you can be flexible enough, just turn up at the station and choose where to go on impulse.

Play tourist in your nearest city

Download a walking map and itinerary for your nearest city and play tourist for the day. Don’t hold back, go all out! Tourist food, tourist sights, tourist shows.

Visit a fun fair

There’s nothing like some candy floss and a ferris wheel to awaken your inner or outer child. Take some small change and enjoy yourself this summer.

Watch the sun set

Find a scenic spot, take a picnic if you like, a blanket for sure and stay to watch the sun set somewhere. Bonus imaginary points if the sun sets over water.

Make an international breakfast

For some reason, most of us focus on dinner when we want to try something new. But what about breakfast? 

Try a great big brunch from the United States with fluffy pancakes and blueberries. Or try the Japanese version with rice and pickled vegetables. Enjoy the research as much as the meal. And if you’re really looking for some fun, try creating a floating breakfast in a pool or paddling pool!

Go fruit picking

Food always tastes better when you’ve harvested it yourself. Many farms and cooperatives offer fruit picking sessions over the summer and it’s a great summer bucket list idea for families and couples. 

Take steps to learn a language

Now, let me save you from yourself. You can’t learn a whole new language in a summer. But you can make a great start!

At one end of the spectrum, try language learning apps like DuoLingo or Rosetta Stone. Or watch interactive programmes in a different language with your children. At the other end, head abroad to a language school and immerse yourself entirely.

You can start with these phrases for how to say cheers in French!

Skim stones

Summer is made for this. Quite simply.

Visit an historic site and find out more about it

Chances are you’ve overlooked an historic site near you. It’s just human nature. Whether it’s a statue you’ve walked past every day, a stately home or a blue plaque about an event you don’t know anything about… this summer is the time to find out!

Bonus ideas for your summer bucket list

Paint with your feet

Ideal for toddlers, but big kids and grown ups can have fun with this as well. Roll out giant paper in the garden and dip feet in trays of paint. Go for the washable option to make the clean up easier. Or, just paint with water onto dry tarmac for the ultimate easy clean option.

Blow bubbles

Guaranteed to entertain any small child, you can increase the challenge with huge hoop bubbles for teens and adults. Street artists can create masterpieces this way. Can you?

Build a sandcastle

An old family favourite, building sandcastles is a traditional fun summer activity. Increase the challenge by creating moats, drainage systems, reservoirs and more.

Go stargazing

Easy to organise, free to take part. All you need is a clear sky at night and a snuggly warm blanket. If at all possible, head away from the cities to see the brightest stars. Take a guide with you, like the National Geographic Backyard Guide to the Night Sky to make the most of it. 

Go fishing

Wade in deep, board a boat or sit on the edge of a riverbank. Maybe you’ll catch something, maybe you won’t, but it’s the chance to stop and go slow, with your family or alone.

More Fun for Summer

Watch a thunderstorm

Just stand and watch and marvel at nature.

Climb a tree

Yes, this is one for grown ups, too, if you find the right tree! Or it that doesn’t work, find a climbing wall or High Ropes course.

Have a water balloon fight

How did I get to the ripe old age of, ahem, 21 without learning how to do this? A water balloon fight is a classic activity for summer, and if you’re not sure how to do it, there’s a handy water balloon tutorial over here.

Jump in puddles

If you’re an adult, you can rephrase this as wading through a stream on an adventurous hike, but the concept is much the same…

Bury a time capsule

Gather together newspaper clippings, write a letter, cut off a lock of hair and put them into a waterproof box, like a leftover ice cream tub or tupperware container. Bury in your garden for someone to find in the future.

Run through sprinklers

It’s another one of those classic things to do on summer days… Switch on the garden sprinkler and run back and forth, chasing children, or trying to stay dry. 

Wash the car

Summer bucket lists may not be full of domestic chores, but you can have a lot of fun with this one. Bubble up with soap and young children or shoot a spoof Daisy Duke style video to have a laugh with your family.

Buy an ice cream

Not just any old ice cream. Find the most extravagant, gourmet ice cream cone in your area. And relish it! If gourmet ice cream isn’t a thing where you live, then try an ice cream decorating game instead. Sugar rush included.

Paint ceramics

This is one of my favourite calming activities for summer when a rainy day rolls into town. Depending on your location and skill level, you can paint onto white ceramic you already own, head to a workshop or create the pottery from scratch.

Find a rockpool

The best bucket lists for summer include wading through rockpools looking for marine life! I used to spend hours doing this as a child and as an adult photographer, it’s still good fun.

Want to enjoy this and take amazing photos? Here are some photography ideas for you!
