Summer Activity List Printable

Please tell me I’m not the only mom with some major Spring Fever going on!!  Friends… I am seriously struggling right now!  I can’t believe I’m about to say this…. because I generally love structure.  But, I’m so over spelling words, math worksheets and rushing out the door to school in the morning!  I’m ready for water ballon fights til dark, late movies, lazy mornings and some fun family memories!!  So, this week I’m pulling out our Summer Activity List and going to get it loaded with tons of fun activities for us to do this summer!! I’m going put mine in our MudRoom – where I normally keep our Weekly Schedule!

Supplies Needed:

-Print either the 12×36 printable OR both the top and bottom 12×18 printables (I printed the 12×36 at our local Costco)
12×36 Poster Frame (or 11.75″x36)
-Tape (if you’re piecing the 12×18’s together)


For printing you have the option of printing the single 12×36 or you will need to download and print the Top and Bottom 12×18’s of your color choice.  To get the 12×36 printed you have to take your file down to Costco on a jump drive and upload it from the computers there that they have at their counter.  You can’t upload the file from your computer.  From what I understand, WalMart does not offer 12×36 printing.  I haven’t check any other places.  If you don’t have a Costco, then just print the two 12×18 files and piece them together.
Framing:  If you go to purchase your frame locally you may only be able to find 11.75×36 frames.  It is the more standard frame size.  But, you can find 12×36 frames as well.  I’ve gone down to our local Michaels on two different trips for frames and one time they had 12×36 frames and the next trip only 11.75×36 frames.  If you have 11.75×36 frames then you’ll just need to trim the edges slightly!
Then write your Summer To-Do list on the glass of the frame using a black sharpie (don’t worry, it wipes off easy using some Windex or a Glass cleaner).  Then, let your kiddos check them off as your complete all your Summer Fun activities!!
