Back To School Bucket List Idea

This would be fun for students to accomplish their goals this school year.

It’s been so fun to see all the back to school pictures I’ve been seeing on social media. Kids are so cute with their new clothes and backpacks. With a new school year comes new schedules and goals. I thought it would be fun to put together a Back To School Bucket List idea for the students in your life.

I bought the quart size paint cans at my local home improvement store for a few dollars. I think using an actual bucket or can will keep the bucket lists safe and creates a visual piece so the students will keep their goals in the forefront of their minds.

I’ve provided the following printables for your use, if you’d like to use them.

Back to School Bucket List Instructions:

Bucket List

  • The free printable contains two labels. Cut them out and place around can to see how it fits. Adjust if needed.

Bucket List Label

  • Brush your adhesive on the back of the label. I really like Mod Podge.
  • Adhere to the can and allow to dry. You may need to hold down the label for a few minutes to make sure it sticks.

Such a fun idea for students to accomplish their goals for the school year.

Using either type of list have your children discuss with you what they would like to do during the school year. Here are some suggestions.

There are so many things I could say but I will just start with the basics. Mother to 4. Grandmother to 11 (Yes, 11. All under the age of 9.) I am a former Army wife and we spent 15 years traveling around the world. It was such a thrill to have seen so many places and meeting lifetime friends. I spent many years working in the craft industry and love getting together with friends and creating. I have a lifelong love of thrift shops, antiques, and yard sales.
