Do you have a teenager? Or even a tween? Summer means a whole new thing when your kids become a little older. They no longer love sidewalk chalk or painting with ice. They need “more exciting” things. Am I right? Sometimes because these things are bigger than buying sidewalk chalk, I like to plan ahead. This is super easy to do with this Printable Summer Bucket List For Teens. We’ve also included bucket list ideas for teens to help you get started planning your summer activities for teens.
Summer Bucket List for Teens
If your tween is like mine, they love colors, random characters and objects, and doodles. These teen summer bucket list printable are inspired by these. My daughter loves Stitch, pineapples, state shapes, flowers, palm trees, flip flops and more. She loves bright colors but pale colors too. This summer bucket list for teens is filled with lots of summer bucket list ideas for teens!
I created two different styles of bucket lists, with a few different versions of each. Each one has pictures of pineapple, palm tree, flip flops, sun, beach ball and watermelon. One is created with lines that they can write on, while the other has fun bubble circles. They both serve the same purpose, but have a different look. The colors used are bright and summery. Each page has a different set of colors. This should help give tweens and teens options to choose from!
Summer bucket list ideas for teens
I suggested to my daughter that not ALL of the items on her bucket list are big things. We can’t do something big every day, or even every week and summer only lasts so long. Some ideas she had are:
- Go swimming
- Go on the slip n slide
- Make solar smores
- Have a slumber party on the trampoline
- Go on a picnic
- Catch fireflies
- Go to an amusement park
