New Year Bucket List Challenge: 52 Things To Do With The Kids

I have listed 52 things to with the kids over the next 12 months. You can use it as inspiration to make your own or simply print it off and stick it to your fridge. 

It's a new year with new beginnings and there are lots of adventures to be had. Each year, I sit with my kids and make a bucket list of days out and things they would like to do throughout the course of the year. 
To help you get in on the fun, I have listed 52 things to with the kids for the next 12 months. You can use it as inspiration to make your own or why not print it off and use this one as a checklist and see how many you can do.
