Summer ideas 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!
