The Kid Bucket List grew from a little idea to capture adventures that we could experience with our two kids. We created a bucket list where we listed dozens of things that we hoped to do from milking a cow to holding a crocodile. No idea was too silly or unachievable. As they were completed, we documented the experience, hopeful that other families might try it too.

Sometimes health and money can get in the way of some of the big ticket items on a list. I doubt that we will be headed off to Africa anytime soon (read about how we are travelling with a Chronic Health Condition.) but this only provides room for other adventures, right?

The great thing about a Bucket List is that you’re under no obligation to complete them every item you’ve listed….they can stay in the Bucket ready and waiting for the perfect time. Better still, you can keep adding items whenever you discover something you would like to add. 

A Kid Bucket List makes you think about what you want to do with your children and helps you to find adventures where you don’t expect. Travelling with kids can be fun and rewarding.

Where do you want to go next?

I am under no illusion that we have a certain amount of privilege when it comes to travel and adventure. We recently wrote about how we are paying opportunity forward with the development of a roving reporter arm of the Kid Bucket List

  1. This is a great idea. I love that my daughters seem to have caught the travel bug from us, even though they are only 4 and 1. I love this idea of letting them create their own bucket list! Travel for us has changed now that we travel with kids but it is still fabulous and I am sure it will be changing as they grow too.

  2. This is such a great idea. Growing up my family and I literally went on one holiday (I didn’t have a bad childhood, just not a very adventurous one!) You’ve made me ponder about a bunch of places I want to take my girls.

    Awesome idea!


  3. Your adventures look really fun, I will enjoy reading about what you get up to in Australia as I live in England. I like writing about the places I explore too and I am 9.

  4. Hi there! Came across your fabulous blog via the aussie bloggers FB group. Looks like you’ve been on some awesome adventures already. If you come to SA and are looking for tips I’d be happy to offer some suggestions 🙂

  5. What an awesome idea! I have five year old twins and they are my favourite travel companions, so enthusiastic! Last year we went elephant riding in Thailand and pretended to be pirates at the Princess Diana memorial playground, if you ever go to London it is a bucket list item! I’m hoping I can take the kids to Japan sometime in the future, looks like you had an amazing trip!
