This week is Burke’s last week of school (can that be right?). And, since summer is my favorite of all seasons, I can’t wait to dive right into all that summer has to offer!
I’m sure you’ve seen ‘summer bucket lists’ floating around- the idea is that your family makes a summer to do list and then, as you make popsicles and eat ice cream and go to the zoo, each item on your list is checked off (and you have a whole summer of memories!).
This is the first time our family made a summer bucket list, and we loved coming up with ideas of fun things we want to do this summer!
It’s not rocket science (you just make a to do list and then do the activities), but making the list poster sized was easy and cheap and turned out great, so I thought I’d share the details here in case you want to make a giant summer bucket list as well.
First, we collected ideas as a family. Then I made a poster (in Photoshop) with our ideas, all in outline fonts (the ones I used- Vintage One, skinny jeans, NeoRetroDraw, Budmo, Chalkline). After that, I had the print made into a 24″ x 36″ sized engineers print at Staples.
After we brought it home, I added color outlines to the words (mostly because I uploaded the sign as a low resolution file and it made the edges of each word blurry- but I like the rainbow of colors it adds to our sign).
We’ll color in the words as we check items off of our list! Summer fun, here we come!

I love it! We still need to make one…although it might be pretty short with a newborn and moving. 😉
oh my goodness, just got caught up on your blog! WHOA, friend, tons going on. I think your bucket list should read “pack, move, unpack” and maybe “ice cream” several times. 🙂
glad you finally know what’s next, though! 🙂 and vera mae is just about the sweetest ever! 🙂
I love this!!! Great idea Kirstin!
May I mention this idea in a television segment I’m doing on tracking summer bucket lists and use a couple of these cute photos?
Would love to be featured (assuming you’ll attribute the work). 😉 Thanks!
