Yearbook Page Ideas: What’s on your Bucket List?

Bucket lists are great for keeping your life goals in check. You can make lists for places to travel, new skills to learn, or simply to tick off certain lifetime milestones. How about this for a yearbook page idea – putting your year groups’ bucket list in your yearbook. It’ll definitely give you something to talk about at your reunion!

The trick with any bucket list is to make sure there’s a balance of achievable goals, as well as more challenging ones. When it comes to skills and experiences, these days the world really is your oyster. I wonder what our grandparents, or great grandparents’ list would look like?

Here are a few bucket list goodies to get you started:

Yearbook Bucket List Design Ideas

Word cloud – make a word cloud out of everyone’s bucket list ideas to use as a double-page spread.

Student profiles – if you don’t want to dedicate a whole page to a bucket list, use the idea in your student comments by asking “what’s on your Bucket List?”

“Before I Die…” page with a list of everyone’s goals, you could even add names and check if they’ve ticked it off each time you meet up!

Use signs – my yearbook sidekick, Matt wrote a great article about using signs in your yearbook. Signs would work really well for bucket lists, so you can can look back and remember what you still need to do.

Put a number on it – ’20 Things to do before you’re 20′, ’30 things to do before you’re 30′, you get the idea.
