Summer Bucket List with the Kiddos – Take 2


With a taste of warmer weather I am now starting to think ahead to Summer! Two years ago I came up with a Summer Bucket List to do with my kids in Central Iowa. Well the kids are 2 years older now so I thought I would revisit what I wanted to do with the kiddos this Summer.  Here are 42 things on my Summer Bucket List with the Kiddos:

    1. Visit Jester Park Natural Playscape.
    2. Try out some of these 10 Edible Science Experiments!
    3. Play at the Spray Ground at American Legion Park.
    4. Go for a walk around Gray’s Lake.
    5. Take a trip to Adventureland and try not to get too dizzy on the Teacups. Click here for discounted tickets.
