Summer Bucket List 2012

Little Wonders' Days
Since there are only four weeks left until the school year ends, and we are already having summer weather, it is time to start thinking about our summer plans.  Miss M and J have several local camps they will be attending throughout the summer, but there are also lots of lazy, hot summer days to enjoy. The last few years we have made a summer bucket list and it has led to a lot of fun summertime memories.  So, in no particular order, here is this year's list:
  1. Pick berries at a U-Pick Farm
  2. Make freezer jam (Mom)
  3. Make fizzing sidewalk paint
  4. Make giant bubbles
  5. Splat Painting

  9. Do a loom weaving project
  10. Finish Chess and Communications merit badges (J)
  11. Hunt for fossils
  12. Make homemade ice cream
