I know for many summer is well underway, but my kids just got out of school last week and I still have a week left. So, I might be a little behind the eight ball on this, but we finally sat down this weekend and created our summer bucket list. This year I wanted to do something fun and visible, so that it would be a daily reminder of all the fun things we have planned!
I decided to put together a pennant banner that I could print out quickly and easily. After designing the template, the whole thing took me about 10 minutes to put together! Score!
I used this template, which you can download for free HERE.
Then, in Picasa I added the words using this font (which you can get HERE)
To put the banner together, I just hot glued the pennants onto grosgrain ribbon and then added some buttons at the ends for a little added detail.
I just used regular computer paper, but I would recommend using a heavier card stock so that the light doesn’t shine through. These pictures were nearly impossible to take with all the back light.
Here’s what’s on our Bucket List for Summer of 2012:
Family Bike Trip
Newport Beach with our Cousins
Outdoor Movie Night
Sleepover with Friends
Tubing Down the Delaware
Family Bike Trip
I’m pretty happy with our cute summer bucket list and
I’m super excited for all the fun things we have planned!
What’s on your family’s summer bucket list?
Sounds like a fun summer! Here the school term will last another five and a half weeks, so I get really jealous when I hear about all the cool things y’all are planning 😉
What are you going to do once you have completed your activity? Put a sticker on the pennant? (You’re probably not going to tear it off, it looks too pretty.)
Cute idea! I’m already thinking what I can do… I had never thought of a summer bucket list! 🙂
I made a bucket list from an old picture frame I found free on the side of the road. Pulled out the painting, spray painted the frame, strung twine back and forth and used mini clothes pins to pin our list. That way it can be used over and over for many seasons too. (winter would include tubing, build a snowman, etc) Our summer list includes… Drive in movie, mini golf, annual trip to MI, Iron Pigs baseball, fireworks, Friday night fireworks in New Hope, Dorney Park, camp out in back yard, letterbox somewhere, Father’s Day weekend camping trip, Lehigh Valley Zoo… And a few others. Lol. There is a small bucket attached on the bottom to put the pieces of paper in when they are completed.
Such a cute idea!!! I love that it’s so visual (would be great for my still little kids). I tried downloading the template, but it’s not working…would you happen to know why?
I love this idea Monica! How Cute… I think I’ll make one for our mantle!
