At Little Tikes, we know that summertime is full of endless activities, playdates, sports, and more for kids. With so much going on, it can sometimes be tough to feel like you made the most of your summer before it’s over and school is starting back up. That’s why we put together our “Sand-Bucket List,” 50 activities that kids of all ages should do to make the most of their summer.

Sand-Bucket List

We’ll be releasing 5 Sand-Bucket List activities every week from now until the end of summer (that’s only 10 weeks away, gulp!), for you and your kids to do to make sure you get the most out of your summer. Each different Sand-Bucket List activity features a unique, imaginative way for your kids to Play Big! Be sure to share your Sand-Bucket List adventures with us on Social Media (@OfficalLittleTikes using the hashtags #littletikes #Playbig and #sandbucketlist) for a chance to be featured by Little Tikes!
