Your Summer 2020 Bucket List

Chances are, your summer plans have probably been altered by COVID-19. Parties and vacations have been re-scheduled, but that doesn’t mean that summer fun is canceled! It might look a little different this summer, but there is still so much you can do to enjoy the season, make memories with friends and family and maybe get a tan while you’re at it.

  1. Have a fancy backyard picnic- This may sound like a no-brainer, but you can make memories at home just by doing small things to make another dinner, birthday or anniversary unique. It’s not just another meal at home when you break out the fancy dishes, pretty blankets, candles, and your favorite wine.
     
  2. Plant a garden (and keep it alive)- This one will provide hours of entertainment all summer long, and hopefully you’ll have something to show for it at the end of the season! Get the family involved in picking out plants, watering, weeding, and harvesting the fruits (and vegetables) of your labor. Check out these resources from Better Homes & Gardens to decide what to plant in your local area: https://www.bhg.com/gardening/gardening-by-region/regional-gardening/
     
  3. Have a water balloon fight- Some of us have pools right in our backyard, or a beach that’s walking or biking distance, but if you don’t you can cool off with a friendly water balloon fight right in your backyard. We love this product to quickly fill up your water balloons. You can find it on Amazon or at local stores like Target or Walmart: https://youtu.be/1g__8ge2-yk
     
  4. Explore a new hike or trail in your local area- While practicing social distancing, time spent outside in the fresh air can be the best thing for you! Check out your local hiking trails and try one you haven’t done before! You might be surprised how close some beautiful places are to your own backyard.
     
  5. Jump on the Tie-Dye Band Wagon- Okay, we know you’re tired of seeing it on Instagram, but you’re never going to wear that t-shirt again anyway! It’s something different and fun that can bring some new color to your old clothing. Here’s a great article on how to tie-dye and what you need! https://www.parents.com/fun/arts-crafts/kid/tie-dye-with-kids/?slide=slide_497ffccf-b672-4fc8-8ded-15aaa01d6b0d#slide_497ffccf-b672-4fc8-8ded-15aaa01d6b0d

 

Check back later this summer for some more fun ideas to add to your bucket list!
