We are officially ready for summer and so excited to show off our Summer Bucket List for 2015! Last week I shared how we got started and where we found inspiration for our list. Now we’re putting together our display, ready to get started.
Once again, we’re happy to be partnering with Post-it Brand on this summer of fun. We used their new Post-it Brand World of Color collections to help make our board a success. I love the Marrakesh Collection with the colors of the rainbow!
Supplies for Summer Bucket List Display:
- Post-it Notes – World of Color collection
- black marker or crayons
- something to display your list – section of a wall, back of a door, poster board, etc.
- 25 ideas for our list (link back to post #1)
We used a black marker to write down all the items on our list for summer. Since we chose 25 activities, it worked out to have 5 ideas for each color.
My girls used crayons to decorate each Post-it Note as well, giving them a little action!
Since our house is limited on space, I chose to display our board onto the back of our front room closet. I added a “To Do” and a “Done” area to our display. It will really help us see what we have done this summer and what we will still need to do! Happily this Post-it Note collection is “super sticky” to help these stay up on our door all summer long, even as we rearrange them to our done area!
We arranged each Post-it Note in a fun rainbow display, making our summer bucket list exciting! My kids are determined to get them all done. Which is great with me, as that means they are excited to get up and get going, adding to the routine and schedule that summer still needs!
