Our Summer Bucket List 2015


Since we’ve been enjoying a streak of gorgeous weather I think it’s safe to say that summer is upon us. It’s been wonderful to extend our play time out into the garden; it’s a lovely space for Rosalie to play in and explore. We spend much of our time out there at the moment and I feel like we could while away our whole summer, so to give us some aspirations I’ve made a note of ten things we’d like to do – our Summer Bucket List 2015.


I have a feeling that this summer is going to be fantastic because Rosalie is at such a fun age – she loves to run around and explore, and she’s very inquisitive. I think the atmosphere at a fair will be wonderful for her to experience, and hopefully there’ll be some teacups to ride on!

She has really taken to watering the plants in the garden, so I think growing cress together will be fun because it is so quick to germinate she might actually make the connection between the seeds, the sprouts and the leaves she can eat.

I have some lovely photographs of Rosalie (and daddy) in the paddling pool last summer, so I am certain she will enjoy it even more this year as she’ll be able move around by herself and have a proper splash about.

Her compassion towards the needs of teddy and baby doll has grown over the past few weeks as she has started to offer them her food and beaker at snack time – I think it may be time to have a teddy bears’ picnic!

So here it is, my toddler-friendly summer bucket list of ten activities for June, July and August:

  1. Go to a fair

  2. Eat ice cream

  3. Go to the beach

  4. Play with water in the garden

  5. Have a BBQ

  6. Grow cress

  7. Draw with pavement chalk

  8. Play with bubbles

  9. Splash about in the paddling pool

  10. Have a teddy bears’ picnic

    Thanks Vickie! You should definitely get in on the cress-growing action – it grows so fast I'm sure Bubs will love seeing it grow x
