Our philosophy is that every kid deserves a Bucket List. You know, the list where you record all the things you would like to experience with your kidlet before they hit High School. It may include little bits of nostalgia as you list things you did with your own parents like planting pansies in the garden or learning to skim a stone on water. It may also include a few big ticket items like the dream holiday to Disneyland, snorkelling the Barrier Reef or feeding a crocodile in the Northern Territory.

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.
Our images are captured on my trusty iPhone – our DSLR just gets in the way (but we are open to suggestions on how to make it easier?)

  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!
