School is almost done for the year! Get the kids ready for summer with a fun goodie basket. It can be anything from a few beach toys and bubbles in a sand bucket to few little surprise tickets they can expect to use this summer.
25 fun ideas for what to put in a bucket or basket:
NEW SWIM SUIT
BEACH BALL (deflated)
BAG OF WATER BALLOONS
GIFT CARD (See below for ideas or use our SUMMER FUN VOUCHERS!)
MINI PHOTO ALBUM FOR SUMMER MEMORIES
To include things like theater tickets, park passes, or gift cards, glue the card to the front of the envelope & stash the goods inside. I stacked a few on top of each other then wrapped with a ribbon.
Ideas for your fun day trip or passes:
TRIP TO THE PARK
FATHER/SON OR FATHER/DAUGHTER FISHING DAY
MOTHER/DAUGHTER SPA (at Nail Salon or local Sweet n Sassy)
ICE CREAM PARLOR DAY
AMUSEMENT PARK TICKETS (taped to the back of voucher or in an envelope)

Last, but not least, - actually, some of my favorites - a few sweet and simple ideas to put on our
SUMMER FUN VOUCHERS:
One special craft day with your child
One nature day with your child (go on a nature walk, hike, or visit local park)
One visit to local ice cream shop with mom or dad
Trips to the ice cream truck (With money for them already in the envelope)
Gift voucher to Rita's Water Ice
Weekend Trip to Grandparents house
Make up your own! (And comment below! I would LOVE to hear your ideas!)
What's great about this, is you have plans already in place for your child's summer and money allocated for the specific activities and places. Even ice cream money set aside! There were so many little trips and things we MEANT to do last summer and never got to. This year, I have a plan, the tickets, and it's all presented in sweet little envelopes! It's gonna be a great summer!
WISHING YOU AND YOUR KIDS AN AWESOME SUMMER!
