As a mom of two young kids, summer can often slip by in a blur of summer camps, cookouts, and long afternoons of cartoons when its too hot to play outside. One of my personal mom goals is to have as much fun with my kids as possible before they no longer think it’s cool to hang out with me.

This year I’m determined to bust boredom in creative ways that are also low-effort and hopefully leave us all with some summer memories. In other words, this is my summer bucket list! It includes some summer classics like lemonade, a few quick recipes (including one for bubbles), and a few field trips too. Here’s how you can get in on the fun.
