Summer Bucket List: 25 SMILE-Worthy Ideas

Summer is officially here! We’re all excited for bonfires, fireworks and swimming, but after the initial summertime excitement wears off and you start hearing “I’m bored” from your kids, what do you tell them?

We have a fun solution: Create a summer bucket list to give your family something to look forward to – and allow everyone a chance to come up with that special must-do! The New England area is chock full of fun, family-friendly activities and destinations: Historic museums, the beach, nature hikes. Take time to gather as a family to brainstorm fun ideas of things to accomplish over the summer. Here are 25 fun, SMILE-worthy ideas to get you started, with a few tooth-friendly ideas thrown in there, too!

• Visit a local zoo
• Grow a garden
• Blow bubbles
• Color with chalk
• Plan a family picnic (with tooth-friendly foods, of course!)
