My niece sent me over her summer bucket list of things she plans to do with her daughter Clara. What is a summer bucket list? It is a list of ideas that a parent puts together of activities the parent plans to do with his or her child over the summer…

As you can see from the photo, Clara is going to be busy over the summer! Clara’s summer bucket list actually turned into more of a summer bucket of goodies…

According to Clara’s mom – Clara’s summer fun bucket includes…

Big Crayons

Big Paintbrushes

Clothespins

Pasta

ABC Magnets

Old Purse

Wallet

Cards

Pictures

Beads (big)

Yarn

Glue Sticks

Felt Shapes (stickers)

Contact Paper

Old Keychains hooked together

Tissue paper

Gift Bags

Old Computer Keyboard

Pom Poms

Paper bags

Shaving Cream

Bath Paint

Construction Paper

Magazines

News Papers

Watercolors

Plastic hammer/tool set

Wood Blocks

Plastic Bowling sets

Plastic Balls (to go in the pool on rainy days)

Bubbles

Lots and Lots of books

Included in the box is a binder of developmental milestones and activities printed from various sites[ American Academy of Pediatrics book “The Wonder Years”, and a Baby Sign Language Book.  A binder is also included for the babysitter. The binder includes Clara’s schedule, some reminders (wear sunscreen, watch around water, no peanut-butter yet, etc. and “permission” to try new things.

Clara’s mom put this summer bucket of activities together for her baby sitter to use as well. Although this summer fun bucket is ready to go, it won’t be all that Clara will be doing this summer. She will also be taking little trips like this recent trip to the zoo…

And playing outside in the yard…

And playing in the water table…

It looks like a busy and fun summer for Clara!
