Here are 7 summer bucket list ideas to try in your own area:

1. Visit an alpaca farm

Visiting an alpaca farm can be an incredibly delightful and unique experience. You’ll have the opportunity to get up close and personal with these adorable and gentle creatures.

From feeding and petting them to learning about their fascinating history and wool production, a visit to an alpaca farm promises loads of fun and memorable moments.

2. Get a permanent tatoo

Tattoos have become increasingly popular in recent years, with people choosing designs that hold special meaning or simply appeal to their aesthetic sense.

Among the most popular tattoo choices are minimalist designs, especially those that can be placed on the inner forearm, as they are both subtle and easy to conceal.

Many people are also drawn to unique or personalized symbols, opting for small tattoos that hold great significance. Whether it’s a tiny heart or a simple geometric shape, small tattoos offer a way to express one’s individuality in a subtle yet meaningful way.

3. Get a henna tatoo

Henna tattoo, also known as Mehndi, is a temporary tattoo made from the paste of the henna plant. It has been used for centuries in many cultures for body decoration and celebrations.

The tattoo typically lasts between one to three weeks. It all depends on the quality of the henna and how well it is taken care of. The pluses of henna tattoo include its natural and safe ingredients. Also, the beautiful and intricate designs, and the temporary nature of the tattoo.

However, the minuses include the risk of allergic reactions and the fact that the designs can’t be changed after application. Overall, henna tattoo is considered safe for most people, but it’s recommended to do a patch test before applying it to a larger area of the body.

4. Make teddy bear smores

Making teddy bear s’mores is a fun and easy summer activity that both kids and adults can enjoy. All you need are graham crackers, chocolate, marshmallows, and teddy grahams.

Simply place a piece of chocolate and a marshmallow on top of one graham cracker, and then roast the marshmallow over a fire or a grill until it’s golden brown. Then, place a teddy graham on top of the marshmallow and sandwich everything together with another graham cracker.

This twist on a classic treat is sure to bring a smile to everyone’s face and create lasting memories. For a variation, try making s’more cupcakes, s’mores pops or s’mores bark for a tasty and creative twist on this summertime favorite.

If you want something that’s quick and easy, you can also try making s’mores bark by melting milk chocolate. Then add miniature marshmallows, and lastly, sprinkle graham crackers on top. Whatever you choose, making s’mores is a delicious way to add some fun to your summer activities!

5. Make trendy, bendy candles

Bendy candles are taper candles that are shaped into unique designs using hot water. To make your own bendy candles at home, you will need taper candles in the color of your choice, a water pitcher or baking dish filled with hot tap water, and a flat surface to press the candles onto.

Submerge the candles in hot water for about 10-15 minutes until they become pliable. Then, carefully remove them from the water and bend them into the desired shape. To solidify the design, place the candles in cold water.

TakesSafety precautions when handling hot wax. Address concerns about safely burning a bent candle by rotating the candle as it burns. Also, shaving the side to create a flat surface. Here’s a tutorial I found on Pinterest. Here’s a video of one too.

6. Make a Starbucks drinks at home

Plus, you can enjoy your homemade refresher in the comfort of your own home, without having to wait in long lines or deal with crowded cafes. Here’s a post about how to make a dragon fruit refresher.

Making pastry art can be a fun and creative way to express oneself in the kitchen. With the rise of social media platforms, sharing one’s pastry art creations with others has never been easier. Plus, seeing the amazing pastry art creations of others can be a great source of inspiration. And, motivation to improve one’s own skills.
