Download this PDF printable for a cute, custom summer bucket list and 100 ideas. I like this version so my kids can choose the activities and add other ones they are looking forward to.
My family and I have had so much fun exploring Kansas City since moving here nearly three years ago, and summer is probably our favorite time to get out and be on the go (It would be Spring if we had one here). I wanted my next post to offer you some ideas for itineraries around Kansas City, but as I started brainstorming, I realized there was just so much I wanted to put in front of you! So, here is the first post in what will be a series of summer adventures – Free and Nearly Free Downtown!
First thing first, though, I strongly recommend getting each of your kids a disposable camera or two. They can document their own impressions of what they see and do. After each outing have the kids dictate (or write on their own if they can) a few notes in a journal. At the end of the summer have the photos developed and put them in with the corresponding journal entry. This way the children get to experience each trip again and further cement the memories in their minds.

Doing Good Feels Good
History Can Be Fun
This is by no means a comprehensive list of free (or nearly free) downtown activities, so please comment below with an additions you’d like to share with the other parents. Next up: North KC!
