My Summer Bucket List

Its no secret how excited I am for this Summer. I love being a teaching assistant and developing childrens minds however I would be lieing if I didnt admit that the holidays are a huge bonus. Having 6 weeks off has always been boring and i usually crave routine and work before September comes however I am determined to enjoy this extra time with Ellie and Luke and have written a bucket list of all the places I would like to go, some places we probably won’t get round to visiting and some I know we will go to. I am excited to share our adventures honestly and hope to find some new treasures along the way.

Summer holiday bucket list!

These are in no particular order:

1) Monkey Forest/Trentham Gardens

2) Local National Trust places such as Attingham, Wightwick Manor, Benthall Hall, Sunnycroft etc

3) Ice Cream Farm

4) Cardingmill Valley

5) Lavender Field – Newport

6) Chester Zoo

7) Cbeebies Land/Alton Towers

8) Ty Mawr Country Park- Oswestry

9) British Ironworks Museum – Oswestry

10) Rhyl

11) Colwyn Beach

12) Bodnant Garden

13) Rhyl Seaquarium

14) Bodafon Farm – Conwy

15) Thomas Land/Drayton Manor

16) National Memorial Arboretum

Of cause money doesnt grow on trees and this list is quite long, I am not expecting to cross everything off, there are also short trips to the park and things I would like to do in the house such as messy play, crafts and we will definitely need time in to chill out too!

We are going on holiday the second week to Pensarn and I am excited to find some new walks and places around there too. Some of the places on my bucket list are near the caravan too.


Last year Ellie had only just began crawling so we were very limited, this year she is far more curious and so adventurous and I can’t wait to make memories with her.


Id love to hear your Summer Bucket List if you have one or a regular spot you like to go to in the holidays.
