Summer is almost here! While many of my friends’ kids in the US are already out of school, we have another few weeks. As always, I want to get out and do more this summer instead of just sitting at home. We love this printable chock full of fun things to do in the summer.
Lots of our blanks will be checked off while we visit some of our favourite summer places to visit in Central Alberta but I’ve made the printable work for people living anywhere! Now let’s see how many we can check off before September. Who’s with me?

What are your “must do” items this summer? I tried to keep the BINGO card relatively generic so everyone could do it (ie no “going to the ocean” or “ride on the boat”) but interesting enough that it might get you out of your normal summertime rut.
And remember, you don’t have to do something out and about every day. Summer is about more than DOING. It is also about resting and reconnecting with your family. So don’t make your “to do” list unachievable. Easy can be fun too! And kids love an ice cream or a Slurpee just as much as they like going somewhere big.
So embrace the fun (and the ice cream)! You and your kids will be better for it.
Need summer fun supplies? We have a few suggestions for you.
- Evan loves this bug gun for going on bug hunts. It sucks them up with a vacuum and then you can put them in a jar or habitat case.
- Take your bubbles to the next level with this giant bubble wand kit.
- Evan had so much fun fishing when we were on our RV trip. A kids fishing rod is inexpensive and hours of summer fun.
- There are loads of summer books for every level of reader. I find that it’s great to have books on hand when the inclination strikes. We also love to visit our library.
Also make sure you pin it for later!
