Make a Bucket for your Summer To Do List

I’ve been thinking about our St. Louis Summer Bucket List and noticing a lot of cool bloggers out there have created some AWESOME crafts to get your family’s list crossed off. Would a literal bucket full of ideas help you this summer, or do you prefer to work off a list on the frig?

Awesome Ways to Track your Summer Bucket List

I fired up Picmonkey and made this list for you! Whenever you need an idea for a place to go or a thing to do, you can grab an idea out of the bucket. I found this cute little bucket at Target’s dollar spot, and I’m pretty sure I’ve seen them in the party aisle at Walmart too.
