Hello Summer Bucket


Pretty soon we are going to say goodbye to the school year and hello summer!!  Help start the fun by giving your kids a bucket or bag filled with things they’ll need and love!  I’m adding these adorable buckets to our last day of school traditions!

The options are endless for what you can add to them and you don’t have to spend a lot of money. I’m using buckets because we are going to the beach this summer.  You can also use a pool/beach bag, or even a bin or basket.

Oh Summer…..we’ve been waiting sooo patiently for you! 🙂


This is what I put in ours:

  • Sun hat
  • Sunglasses
  • Chapstick/lip balm with SPF
  • Sunscreen
  • Bubbles for our younger 2
  • Book
  • Handmade coloring bookmark
  • “Summer” nail polish ( just a new color)
  • Slime kit ( I added glue, foam beads, and a container.)
  • Water balloons
  • Glow bracelets
  • Crazy string
  • Pool toy

This is a fun way to help celebrate the end of school and welcome summer!  How do you say hello to summer? Send me an email or leave a comment!
