I've been making seasonal bucket lists for years. Just lists of things we could do / might feel like doing when the weekends roll around and we have a little free time.
For me, they're a really effective way of getting us out of the house when it's all too tempting to permanently stay locked up behind closed doors, working on a never-ending to-do list of homework, housework and odd jobs.
Yes, there's no way to avoid those things, but as long as we're organised enough to stay relatively on top of them, there's no reason at all why we shouldn't make the extra effort to fill our free time with something fun.
Something that involves taking a few photos and making some memories.
Days we can all look back on as being happy times.
Yes, I fully accept that there are always going to be days when the best-laid plans have to be cast aside.
They seem to happen here with worrying regularity;
I try to fill our bucket list with things that are easy to achieve. Often things that are seasonally specific, nature and craft-based. Things that won't take up huge amounts of time or money because while it's lovely to make a picnic and bundle everyone into the car for a day at a theme park, the beach or the zoo, realistically, it's just not that practical.
For one, we live in the middle of Suffolk UK and we're a good 2 hours drive from any of those things.
I also always try to come up with around 20 things, so we have a bit of choice and can pick things that suit the weather - no point having 20 outdoor activities if it rains every weekend for 3 months!
There are 12 weekends in January, February and March, so 20 activities gives a bit of wiggle room.
So here's my seasonal spring family bucket list.
What would you add or take away? I'd love to know.
