Summer Bucket List Bingo Game for Families
This summer bucket list bingo game is full of ideas for summer fun. Print them off and discuss with your family how you want to play, and what your strategy for getting a Bingo is! Check out all of the items on the game board below.
This bucket list includes:
Play in the sprinkler. We have had so many different sprinklers over the years. This is our family favorite that we keep coming back to over and over again.
Bake cookies. Give these simple sugar cookies a try that look like the planet Earth.
Go to a library reading program. We have a list of reading suggestions by age for the summer, plus a free reading log to go with it to take with you to the library.
Go to the movies. AMC does a $1 movie program for kids in the summer. Check to see if there is one near you!
Ride a bike. My kids are all working on riding 2-wheeler bikes this year. I wish I had known more about the power of balance bikes when my oldest was younger!
Visit a museum. Check your local library for museum passes, many have a program where you can borrow passes for free for the day!
Fly a kite. Bonus points if you make a homemade one first. Building a flying machine is tricky stuff.
Build a sandcastle. You don’t even need a beach for this one. Grab a bag of play sand and add some water to make a beach at home! We like to add food coloring to our sand castles to kick them up a notch.
Catch fireflies. We like to decorate mason jars to observe our fireflies in. Of course, after a close look, always return them to their natural environment. 🙂
Plant a garden. We have tons of gardening with kids posts on this site, because I really believe that growing and harvesting food teaches kids a ton! Here is a fun garden game to play!
Make root beer floats. Talk about a delicious treat right?! Bonus points for making your own ice cream first 😉
Go to the pool. Find a local one to visit of get a small inflatable one for the backyard.
Take a hike. Hiking with kids can be super daunting, but trust me, it’s so worth it. Here are my best tips for hiking with kids, something we do just about every week.
Roller skate. What fun! Find a local roller rink and lace up the skates.
Go fishing. My kids love to fish in our local rivers and lakes. We do catch and release. If fishing isn’t for you, maybe bring some old bread to the lake and throw it in to feed the fish instead!
Splash at a splash pad. Do a quick Google search and I’m sure you will find a splash pad within driving distance, kids are just so drawn to these, and they are a great way to beat the summer heat!
Run a 5K (or go on a Fun Run) Older kids might be able to do a 5k run/walk, whereas younger kids might like to try a Fun Run which is usually 1/2 a mile to a mile. These are often done to raise money for charity, find one close to your family’s heart and go run!
Have a picnic. Not only are picnics fun, but they are a great way to build in some summer learning. Kids can write their own lists of what they want to bring and shopping lists, and help prepare the food!
Make a blanket fort. We like to have indoor camping nights, and building an indoor tent is a favorite.
Visit your grandparents. If this isn’t possible, write them a letter! Or, write a letter to a loved one or friend who lives far away.
Make a time capsule. What a fun way to remember your summer, and the memories you enjoy most.
Make S’mores. This handy caddy has everything you need to make this tasty summer treat!
Watch fireworks. Local carnivals or festivals are a great place to look for fireworks.
Ride a ferris wheel. When I close my eyes and think of summer, I am taken back to the warm summer nights at the fair on the ferris wheel 🙂
So many fun things to do this summer! If there are some on this Bingo board that aren’t possible for your family, feel free to cross them out and add in what you like!
Ideas for Using this Bingo Board
- Try to make a Bingo a week! This would involve marking off 5 items in a row for a Bingo.
- See if you can black out the board throughout the entire summer.
- Highlight your must-do’s and work on that row first.
Kids love the control and excitement of crossing these off as they go. Plus, it beats the “I’m bored’s” for all of you as you know what is on the agenda for those summer lulls.
