A couple of months ago, I told you that my kids and I planned to check off every box on the 100 Things to Do This Summer checklist that Land of Nod posted on their blog last summer. We’re about one-quarter way through the list and are still plugging away with no plans to end the summer with any boxes left unchecked.
Well, this checklist was so popular that Land of Nod put out another checklist: 100 More Things to Do This Summer. This list includes fun favorites like playing broom hockey (I totally did this when I was in middle school), making smoothies and having a lemonade stand.
Since these two lists have come out, I’ve seen quite a few more lists available online, and I’m so excited to have many summers worth of fun activities to accomplish with my kids. Here are a few more of the checklists you may want to check out and check off before summer is over.
