7 Thrilling Things To Do Before Summer Ends

7 Thrilling Things To Do Before Summer Ends

We don’t know about you, but a lot of moms out there (*cough cough*) are counting down the days til the kiddos go back to school.  

And hey, maybe you’re one of them — we don’t judge!

But before thoughts of school lunches and back-to-school shopping cloud our heads, let’s slow down and cherish these last few weeks because..

The summer ain’t over til the gold leaves take over!

So soak in these last few weeks with the Ultimate End of Summer Bucket List.

Let’s hop to it! Here are 7 things you must check off your summer bucket list:


1. Go for a picnic

When was the last time you went for a picnic? If you can’t remember, then checking out this Kid-Friendly Snack Board will have you searching Amazon for the cutest checkered tablecloth. Don't forget to bring board games for extra fun while you soak up those Vitamin D rays.

2. Camp in your backyard

Okay, let’s face it — we’re in August with school supply lists looming in the back of our minds. If you have yet to go camping this summer, chances are, you ain’t gonna!

So let’s make this super easy and pitch a tent in the backyard. Pop a couple s'mores on an outdoor fire and the kids won’t even notice.

3. Create a sidewalk chalk mural

Don’t know about you, but seeing a chalk-covered-sidewalk really melts our hearts! Our kiddo’s creativity really shines — plus, there’s no mess to worry about!

4. Go to the movies

Heading out to the movie theater may not scream “summer bucket list.” But after movie theaters being closed for COVID, a dark movie theater with popcorn may just be the perfect way to end the summer. It gets the family out of the house & experiencing the magic of movies the best way there is.

Not crazy about the movie theater? Try a drive-in! You can find local drive-ins offering a variety of movie showings based on your taste. Super bonus, you can sneak in all the snacks you & the kiddos love.

5. Take a mini-road trip

A road trip may sound more like a nightmare than the perfect family vacay. But a short trip to a nearby city may be that sweet middleground. It may also be way less stressful than herding everyone through a busy airport. Add in a few family travel tips and this little change of scenery may be just what you need to relax, unwind, and make lasting memories as a family.

Want to make it even more memorable? If all goes well, turn it into a summer tradition and have the whole family vote on where to go. This will give them something to look forward to every year.

6. Have a water balloon fight

Summer + water go together like coffee + cream. So what’s a summer without a little water balloon fight?

7. Make ice cream

We end our list with the cherry on top of a perfect summer — ice cream! But not just any old ice cream. . . Homemade Ice Cream. Here’s a fun recipe to try out. 

We hope you enjoy the last warm rays of the summer!
