Our Summer Holiday Bucket List – Summer 2018


Last year, I sat down with the children and asked them what things they would do in the summer holidays. It’s always nice to hear from their mouths what they would like to do, what is lovely is that it’s not always big things, sometimes it’s simple things that are important to them. So I decided it was something I would do with them each year and if possible try and achieve some of the things that are important to them. This year I haven’t booked in lots of things due to the fact I have a new baby, but I do still want to enjoy the holidays with them. Last year it was crazy because we moved house on the first day of the autumn term, so I determined that we will have some quality days out as much as we can.

  • Go on holiday (all booked)
  • Go to Legoland
  • Have a playdate with school friends
  • Go to the beach
  • Join in the library’s summer reading challenge
  • Play with pavement chalks
  • Do painting
  • Visit the children’s Great Grandma
  • Go to the Bracknell fun days
  • Visit California Country Park
  • Have a chill out day
  • Have a picnic
  • Go to the cinema
  • Go swimming
  • Bake a chocolate cake or cookies
  • Have a bike ride
  • Meet up with our NCT friends
  • Play board games
  • Make s’mores
  • Build a sandcastle
  • Have an ice cream from the ice cream van

This is our list for the summer holidays. I really hope that we can fit it all in! What do you want to do this summer?
