This week, the kids and I made our "Summer 2012 Bucket Lists".
This includes all the things they want to accomplish or do during their break from school.
Some of the items on their lists are purely for fun, such as "swim 50 times".
Others are more goal oriented, like "read 10 books", or "learn to make cookies by myself".
They can add to them as they think of more things, and cross off the items they finish.
Hopefully these will come in handy during their "I'm bored" moments.
