Summer Bucket List & Responsibility Chart

My kids are 8, 6, and 4.  We do not pay allowance throughout the school year, but I usually do something in the summer to cut down on the need {want} pleas.  This summer we are calling it "responsibilities" and the three kids are working together to purchase Minecraft for the computer (what is with this game?!).  I found these super cute FREE editable charts.


I made one for each kid and slipped them into a page protector to use with dry erase markers.  I would rather not print these off every week.  I added a "Mom's Choice" and that gives me a little flexibility (meaning I can throw a needed job in there to suit my needs).  We also have a mandatory one hour rest period because the days are looooong and this mommy needs a break.  They only get to mark this one off if they have a "good" rest time (not bugging mommy or their siblings).  And, yes,  my kids are doing summer school packets. I can't let go of the former teacher in me. As Madeline's teacher would say. "If you don't use it, you will lose it".  

Moving on to the FUN stuff! Our Summer Bucket List!  This year we used the big chalkboard to write our list.  Hopefully we will do most of them, but usually there are a few that we do not.  I am cracking up that Red Lobster and Cracker Barrel made the list.  My kids have the taste buds of seventy year olds.  Have you ever been to Red Lobster on a Wednesday night? I swear it is only cute little old couples!


  1. Your gonna be busy:) Love the charts! I may have to do the same:)

    1. Well, not too busy I hope! We will not hit everything on the list, but it is fun to wish! I hope you have an awesome summer with your kids!
