Summer Bucket List for Teens

This summer is going to be a lot different for so many teens out there. My personal goal is to make it the best possible for my 4 teens. I’ve come up with a Summer Bucket List for Teens that I want my kids to hopefully get through this summer.

Summer Bucket List for Teens

When it came to coming up with my Summer Bucket List for Teens I wanted to find things that I know my own teens will do. I know it’s not easy. I know that my guys are ready for summer with open arms because they’ve been cooped up for the last 3 months. They’re ready to burst!


I know many of these activities revolve around wearing face masks. I know that’s the reality of it, but that’s OK. I still want to try and make this summer the best summer yet. I’m keen on making sure it’s fun and exciting and memorable. We’re big on the beach and going to the pool and I want to make that all happen, but it’s going to be different (much different).

I hope this summer bucket list for teens helps you out. I know that many of us are struggling with what to do and where to go. I feel that when we help each out and share ideas, it makes it so much easier. I know my teens miss their friends and really wish they could be with them, so we’re trying what we can to make it happen.

Fun Places to Go with Kids

If you have any ideas that I can add to my Summer Bucket List for Teens, let me know! I want to add them all right on in. I want this to be a resource for moms of teens to come to and get ideas. I know that many of us are hoping to get our kids out and about and not have them attached to their devices around the clock. I want this to help YOU out.

I’m all about finding Fun Things To Do in the Summer. Make sure you create a list and keep it hanging in your kitchen! I know I have mine right on our bulletin board and I will be looking at it around the summer clock.

While I have you – I wrote a post on 10 ways to have a better conversation! Take whatever advice you need from this post and use it to your advantage when you’re conversing.

I also wrote a post called 5 ways to listen better because listening is the other key ingredient to being a better conversationalist. I hope both of these help you in your personal and professional life.

Join my Permission to Hustle Page that I run with my business partner and bestie Vera Sweeney for some additional advice!
