As the summer will be here before we know it I wanted to get ahead of the “mom, I’m bored!” So I have put together this awesome summer bucket list for teenagers.
There are both indoor and outdoor activities to keep them entertained during the summer holidays. As we summer homeschool I just had to include some educational activities too! But I promise they are fun!
Younger children will enjoy our 25+ summer fun activities.
Scroll to the bottom to print out the summer bucket list for teenagers and keep them occupied!
Included in the free download are four different background images to choose from.
