A Free, Fun Summer Bucket List for East Valley Families


Summer is here, and we’ve got an Arizona bucket list for families! This bucket list will keep you on-budget and take the mental load off researching summer activities for toddlers and school aged kids.

Keep reading for our ultimate summer bucket list for Arizona families.

Summer vacation means a wholllleeee lot of time to coordinate indoor activities that check all the boxes: budget-friendly, fun, easy to plan and works in your schedule. 

You all know we love a good seasonal bucket list, and we’re so excited to hack your summer planning with this printable guide to help you maximize your summer, even if you hate the heat. 

We’ve rounded this into four sections, free activities around town, some spend-worthy options, budget-friendly ideas and a day trip section. 

Our list takes you from May’s best summer kickoff events all the way through when the kids go back to school, which is earlier and earlier, but we aren’t complaining! 😉

A big thank you to Swimhaus Swim School in Gilbert for sponsoring our seasonal bucket lists this year, just one more way they make things easier on parents and fun for kids.
