Summer To-Do List

Thanks to some inspiration from the infinitely talented girls over at eighteen 25, I decided to create my very own Summer To-Do List.

The supplies you'll need:

  • 12" x 36" poster frame
  • paper (I used 3 sheets of 12" x 12" scrapbook paper and 5 coordinating pieces of 8.5" x 11" cardstock)
  • tape
  • gluestick
  • craft sticks
  • exacto knife
  • dry erase marker
I used my Silhouette to cut out the words (pharmacy font) and ice cream shapes and used the glue stick to adhere them to the scrapbook paper.

I then cut down to craft sticks using the exacto knife so that they would fit my design and glued those down as well.

I taped the scrapbook paper together so it was all one long sheet and put it into my frame.  Using the dry erase marker, I jotted down all the activities I'd like for us to do this summer.

Quite an impressive list!  It looks like a lot, but the majority of the activities are small things we always do in the summer (eat watermelon, go to the beach, go to the pool, etc....), so it'll be easy to mark them off.  What a fun way to spend the summer!  It'll be nice to look back at the list once summer is over and see how much we were able to do during the next few months.
