Poofy Cheeks: Popsicle Bucket List

June 3, 2013

Popsicle Bucket List

Summer is here and the other day our family sat down and came up with things to put on our summer bucket list. The boys came up with crazy ideas but in the end our bucket list turned out quite nice. You can find things like squirt gun fight, sidewalk chalk paint, stay at a hotel with a water slide, make popsicles and a bunch of other summery things on our list. I wrote the ideas down on popsicle sticks and was originally just going to put those in a jar but thought of this fun popsicle banner where the bucket list items were written on the sticks like jokes sometimes are on real popsicles.

I made a printable PDF template of the popsicles if you want to cut your own out and I also made a DXF file to use if you have a silhouette cutting machine. The links to both are below.

I tried my hand at a little chalkboard art and I am super pleased with how it turned out. I have to say that this chalkboard window is one of my favorite redos. It hangs in our kitchen by the table and I love to update it with fun quotes or things that inspire conversation at the dinner table.

  2. That is the cutest bucket list EVER! We just started putting our ideas down. My son threw out Disney World when we were making our list. Since we live in WI that is a big trip. I wish!

    1. Thank you Megan! My son said a hotel with a slide. There are plenty of those around but I am not sure that is in the budget either ;) My husband said just put it on there and we will try - so we will try! ((No promises!))

I am sure the kiddos would love to get involve with that. And you be able to see what has been completed and what hasn't Love the idea.. of course We don't have kids yet...
