Holiday Bucket List DIY

15 days to go before we leave for Germany!

Because my man and I have to work and Eva is on holiday, I thought it would be nice to make a special effort to do something as a family every day.

Here are some of the things I came up with:

Movie evening at home with pizza and popcorn
Cook a meal together
Visit an art gallery
Pack a picknic and go to the dam
Paint a picture together on a big canvas
Play a boardgame
Make a family quilt
Watch Ice Age 4 at the movies together
Have breakfast at the farmers market
Go to Namibia's only flea market, which is held tomorrow :-)
Visit a near-by game lodge and look at, photograph, and draw the animals
Make presents for family and friends in Germany

By taking the things off we have already done, we can use it at the same time as a count-down for our trip.

To make the bucket list I glued clothes pegs onto an old plank, stamped a frame on index cards, and added the activities:

I left some of the little cards empty, so Eva and her dad can add their own ideas.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

Lots of love,

  1. That is such a great idea for turning waiting time into enjoyable time. Will you be posting when you are in Germany? ~ Maureen

  2. Well how fun is that?!! What a great idea and a cute way to make the time fly!

  3. deine idee finde ich toll und vor allem gefällt mir, dass brett und klammern so verwittert aussehen - wie lange musstest du sie dafür im freien übernachten lassen;)? habt ihr schon ein bisschen reisefieber?
    herzlichst in einen faulen sonntag birgit
