Summer Bucket List for Teens in Colorado

Having your teen create a summer bucket list can be a helpful way to encourage them to make the most of their summer. 

Bucket lists require goal setting – a skill many teens need support developing. It provides a sense of direction and purpose, fosters creativity, and can give them a sense of accomplishment. 

Here is our list of adventures teens can have in Colorado: 

A bucket list for teens at home: 

  • Host a backyard barbecue or picnic with friends.
  • Set up a backyard movie theater and watch movies under the stars.
  • Create a summer reading list and read a new book each week.
  • Learn a new skill or hobby, such as painting, photography, or cooking.
  • Take an online class or workshop to learn something new.
  • Create a garden or plant some flowers to beautify your backyard.
  • Host a game night with friends or family. (Our in-house favorite game is salad bowl)
  • Try out new DIY projects or crafts from Pinterest.
  • Organize a garage sale or lemonade stand.
  • Volunteer for a local charity or organization virtually.
  • Plan a virtual hangout or game night with long-distance friends.
  • Host a karaoke night or dance party in your backyard.
  • Make homemade ice cream or popsicles.
  • Have a water balloon or water gun fight with friends or family.
  • Start a journal or scrapbook to document your summer adventures.
  • Practice yoga or meditation outdoors in your backyard.
  • Have a bonfire and make s’mores.
  • Create a summer workout routine.
  • Learn a new language or practice your language skills with online resources.
  • Write letters to long-distance friends or family members.
  • Have a spa day with homemade face masks and DIY manicures.

These are just a few ideas for a summer bucket list that teens can do at home without needing a car. Get creative and have fun!
