Boredom Busters: Summer To Do List (And Link Up)

Summer is one of my favorite times of the year, and I am sure I am not alone in that.
But often times it can be filled with phrases like: "I'm bored",  "What can we do/there's nothing to do".
I dont always have ideas right off the top of my head, so I decided to make a list.
This is a list of 55 things "to-do" this summer (or any time of the year, really).
They are in no particular order, just fun things and ideas for when we get bored or just because!
Some are just ideas, many have links to tutorials, diy, or recipes.

Also after my list, I have a link up!
 I would love for you to link up and share your fun kid/family friendly crafts, recipes or ideas.
