Show 'N Tell: A Summer of Fun

If you're an addicted avid blogger like me, you already know that the Summer To Do List is all the rage.

I love, love, LOVE the idea and have made ours. We worked on it all day, but I did finish it (and it's only 7 after midnight!). Here are my inspirations: Home Stories A2Z, Clean Mama, & East Coast Mommy. You won't believe the inspiration you get from other's great ideas all fleshed out! You should totally go check out these three great ideas!

I just made it my own after stealing borrowing some of their ideas, plus things my little brown-eyed boy thought up!

First, compile your list. This took us a long time. We are both, however, complete spazzes (is that even a word?!)

 Cut our your lists into little strips. We printed ours on super cute (coordinating) paper. I know...I'm a total geek. {Also - how did I talk D into purple, gray, and green?! I don't know, but I love it!}

Modge 'em onto leftover Crystal Light containers. {I may or may not have an endless supply of these. I think I might drink a gallon a day.}

 Print cute labels on more coordinating paper and apply. See below.

Super cute, easy, cheap {in my case, FREE!}, and I think it will help us to do different things this summer and keep us on our toes! No one wants a boring summer when one can have a Summer of Fun!

I know, right?! AH.Mazing! ;-)

What's on YOUR Summer of Fun checklist?? {Official or not...I wanna know so I can steal it from you give you a virtual high five!}

  1. Looks great, I love the idea of separating them like that! The containers look lovely in those papers, thanks for sharing.

  2. Thanks for the link back. Really cute post. :-)

  3. Thanks for the link up - love the 4 separate containers!

  4. Great idea...much more fun than the yellow writing tablet our list is written on.
    Thanks for sharing.
    ps---who doesn't drink a gallon of crystal light everyday?)

  5. These are super cute! We do a list yearly not just for summer of places we want to go and things we want to do. We all get to add a few and then cross them off throughout the year. We don't always get to all of them but some. Its a yearly bucket list. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Have a great rest of the Sunday.
