Summer Checklist for Kids
Summer can involve a lot of "what are we going to do today?" from both kids and parent. This simple Summer Checklist for Kids is a nifty little solution. Pick an activity and go for it. While I know not all of these activities are socially distanced-compliant for this particular time in history, I do hope this printable outlasts all of this and will be able to be used in future summers, too. But, most of the activities are simple to do and make for a lovely summer day.

Summer Checklist for Kids (and Adults)

While summer doesn't *officially* start for another week and a half, I feel like we're already well into the swing of things. Print out a summer checklist for your family to tackle and make loads of memories this season. These can be great to display on your refrigerator or even in a frame in your kitchen to be used with dry erase marker.

If your kids are feeling creative, they can make a fun checklist of their own. I included a blank version for that very purpose. You can see it pictured above.

Summer Activities
I included the above, super-close-up image to show you how each activity looks on the printable. Each activity has a doodle depicting it, along with a check box.

Summer Checklist Activities

Listed out below are the items I included on my ready-made Summer Checklist printable. On the printable, there are small check boxes next to each activity (as I showed you in the close-up image). These are definitely just ideas to make for a fun printable (as well as a fun summer!). But, I included the blank version so you can make it more custom, too. Feel free to use some of my ideas as a jumping off point if you decide to go the blank route.

I also have a free printable lined (and colorable) version of a Summer Bucket List (pictured above) that I released last year. It has lines to make listing out summer activities a bit easier, if you prefer not to draw them out. This post also contains a thorough list of ideas to put into play this summer.

Printing Your Summer Checklist for Kids

  • This printable is for personal use. If you have a small business and would like to incorporate the physical, printed version of this in your shop (no digital redistribution is allowed), you may purchase a commercial license here.
  • These printables are 8x10" in size. They're perfect to frame and use with a dry erase marker (I like these fine-tipped ones on Amazon). Or, simply place them on a clipboard to use with a pen or pencil all summer.

  • The PDF designs are perfect for at-home printing. Be sure to use letter-sized paper or cardstock (I prefer cardstock).
