So much to do, so much to plan…

It’s finally here! We’ve been counting down the days to the sunniest months of the year. With warm weather comes lots of chances to try new things or pick up your favorite summertime activities.

Whether you want to stay cool or catch some rays, we have plenty of ideas to get you started on that bucket list. Whatcha waiting for? Let’s start planning a summer to remember!

1. Visit a Farmers Market: Check out your local farmers market and make a day out of it. Go with your partner, family, or friends and shop for some local ingredients. Use your haul to make a beautiful dinner to enjoy together.

2. Go to a Concert: There’s nothing like live music on a nice summer day. Look up the schedule at your local venues and you might find your favorite artist is coming to town. Picture yourself at an outdoor venue, perhaps a music in the park event, or even shows at your hometown county fair. Get dressed up, grab your friends, and enjoy an evening of singing and dancing.

3. Plan a Staycation: Get the getaway feeling without traveling far. We love a staycation. It’s easy to plan, more affordable, and gives you the opportunity to explore your neighboring cities. Try new restaurants and shop local boutiques for the full experience!

4. Visit your Local Library: Take a break from the heat and check out some books (literally). This activity is perfect for kids and bookworms. Keep track of all the books you want to read and review all your favorites with the help of our Summer Reading Sticker Book. Libraries often host summer activities like reading programs for kids, craft nights, and group audio book walks. Get your library’s summer itinerary and see what interests you!

5. Go on a Trip: Take some time off for you! Take your dream destination vacation and enjoy some time at the beach. Kick back with a book and focus on recharging your battery. Personally, our favorite part of a trip is kicking off the planning. Get inspired with our Tropical Florals Sticker Book.

6. Go Camping: Pack up the car and get some R&R on a weekend camping trip. Bring your gear and all your favorite snacks. Enjoy some outdoor activities like fishing and hiking. For our indoor people—we totally understand you. Book a cabin trip for a little glamping moment and get the *feeling* of the outdoors without being outdoors. Watch your favorite movies and have a relaxing planning session while you’re all comfy. We even have the perfect planner and stickers to fit the theme!

7. Play Pickleball: Pickleball is having a moment. Whether you’re a pro with the paddle or a curious newbie who has always wanted to give it a go, check out your local court and bring a friend or make some new ones there.

8. Try an Outdoor Yoga Class: Find your inner peace at the beach or a park. Check out your local community events for outdoor yoga classes. Join others who want to spend the day relaxing and connecting with the outdoors.

9. Have a Bonfire: The beauty of a bonfire is that you can have one anywhere. Take it to the beach or host at home with a backyard firepit. Roast s’mores and tell all your favorite stories (spooky or not, your choice). Elevate bonfire night by turning it into a movie night with a fun projector setup.

10. Create a Summer Scrapbook: Take photos of all your adventures and turn these memories into a scrapbook at the end of the summer. Now you have a keepsake to look back on all year long. Try out one of Memory Keeping Journals and don’t forget the stickers!

Get ready for the summer of a lifetime! Grab your planner and definitely check out our Summer Events Sticker Book with our favorite stickers to help you start your planning. Connect and share your bucket list with us and our community on social @the_happy_planner.

Have a great summer and Happy Planning!
