What's On Your Family Bucket List?

Home Stager with Healthyhappyimpactful.com

As we finish out what has been a trying year for many, we're all ready to look at what's ahead. 

So, why not put our focus on a bright and beautiful future? If you have kids, you know that there's a limited amount of time to create beautiful memories and quality time together. 

Today, we've got five creative ideas to put on your family bucket list for the new year. Let's utilize the time we have and enjoy ourselves with those we love.

1. Visit National Parks

Have you been to a national park? How many?

They are beautiful examples of nature and often a frugal way to bring your family closer to each other and to the world's natural beauty. 

Not into this kind of vacation? Perhaps visiting baseball stadiums, Disney, or wonders of the world should be on your list!

Read here for more worthy family goals examples to add to your bucket list!

2. Create a Unique Family Tradition

What makes your family special? Traditions are the glue that bind us and create the best memories. So, this year decide on an activity or two that you can repeat annually, monthly, or weekly. This will make it uniquely yours!

3. Find Family Friends

If you'd love to find friends that you can count on and that support you unconditionally, make it a goal to begin hosting different families in your home. Get to know your neighbors. And reach out to others to get to know them and grow your community.

4. Get Healthy Together

We'd all love to take amazing care of your bodies. Perhaps it's time to walk the talk!

Start small and work your way to healthy family dinners, lunches, breakfasts, and family snacks. Get fit as a family!

5. Teach the Kids Useful Skills

Cooking, gardening, financial skills, and effective cleaning are all useful life skills that help kids feel independent while setting them up for success later in life. 

In Conclusion

There are so many great ideas to add to your ultimate family bucket list! Just remember, less is more when it comes to goals.

If you have too many, you'll end up making little progress in all of them. Instead, choose 1-3 that matter the most to you this year, and go for it!

We have focused these past 3 years to going places we always wanted to visit, and it's been wonderful.  We have new ornaments on our tree from Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii, Aruba, California, Alaska and almost every state along the Eastern seaboard
