I found this list on Pinterest (not sure who the original owner is). I think it would be fun if we all challenged ourselves to complete as many of the tasks as possible with our families this summer. Some are so easy you probably do them anyway, some are cheap, some are not, some are a little dumb, and some are pretty good ideas. Either way everyone should be able to participate. (Even if it isn't technically summer where you live.)
Come back to this thread and post what you've done. I'd like to keep it going through out the summer.
Whoever completes the most WINS!! (Not sure what you'll win, lol!)

Sounds fun should we take pics while we are doing it and post?

Ok, so if we've already done some of those things this year, can we mark it off the list?! LOL

eta: and visit a farm doesn't work for us, because we live on a farm.

Which ones are USA only? Just curious. It will be a little difficult with teens but I bet you can make several of them work.

There's a few we won't be able to do either...like planetarium. I don't think there's one anywhere near here. Or lizard shop. Not sure what that means but there is no way I'm buying a lizard, lol!!

And what the heck is a peculiar P Party????

I think taking pics is a great idea! For the memory aspect alone.

Oh and if anyone makes a movie you have to post it for us, lol!!!

I copied and used paint to mark the boxes of the ones we've already done.

even if not all of these work (like the drive in) there's still a lot of good and fun ideas on the list. Great idea Cortney, thanks for posting

There is a drive in 10 minutes from my house.

I still want to know what is applesauce (other than the food)?

I'm not sure where we would find a $1 movie either.

I laughed at applesauce too. Not sure if they are implying you should eat it or make your own, lol!

You've already made a nice dent in your list #8! WTG!!
