  1. A fabulous list! This should just about keep us going then! We still love making those soap monsters, thanks so much for sharing that idea.

  2. What a great list!! Love that there are things like rolling down a hill and bird watching. Sometimes these kind of activities get forgotten.

  3. brill ideas to keep the kids occupied. i hope we can do all of these and more over the (hopefully) hot summer holidays.

  4. I love it. I think I need to make a sorta holiday bucket list over the next week all ready for the holidays. Can’t believe its crept up so quickly.
