An Adventurous + Frugal Summer To-Do List

Sweet summertime is here! If you’re a list maker like me you like to make lists and you love the satisfaction of crossing each “to do” off the list. Most lists are made of things to do that aren’t necessarily fun. So, why not make a list of fun things to do this summer for you and your family! It can be simple or adventurous, but either way make sure it’s fun for both you and the kids. Summers always go fast here in Michigan and making a list to do this summer will make sure your summer is full of sweet memories and fun moments.

Today I’m sharing my summer to do list to get you started on making your own. I like to keep my list adventurous, yet frugal! Included are some links that offer recipes, locations, or visiting information. Once you make your list hang it somewhere the whole family can see and have fun crossing off each adventure!
