HEAR YE HEAR YE! It's time for the monthly challenge!

Goals are great – especially when it comes to family adventures. Whether you dream of visiting every national park or setting aside one day a week for local exploring, gather your family to chat about the adventures you want to tackle together.

Our theme for October is "Bucket List" and the hashtag is #FT_BucketList. Read on for more details on how to participate.

We've designed a free, printable bucket list and conversation prompts to help you put your dreams on paper as a family. Take time to write your big and little adventurous ideas on the bucket list, and then share a photo of your list on Instagram with #FT_BucketList.

Because we have been happily overwhelmed with the quality of submissions, we will now be picking four participants each month to receive FamilyTrails swag. Each swag recipient will be announced on Thursdays during the theme period. We will then feature a round up on our blog at the end of the month.

The most IMPORTANT part: in order to be considered to win, you must follow the new instructions written below.


1.) Take time to fill out our free, printable bucket list together as a family with both big and little ideas. Take a picture of the bucket list at any stage of this process and share it on Instagram. The submission must have the FamilyTrails bucket list in the photo to be considered to win.

2.) Post your theme photo from a public account between Friday, October 7th and 11:59pm EST on Tuesday, October 25th 2016. There is no limit to the number of entries each account can share and tag.

3.) Use #FT_BucketList and #FamilyTrails in your original caption and tag @FamilyTrails in the photo.

4.) In your caption, include a few sentences explaining how your photo relates to the theme.

You must follow the above rules to qualify for the prize. Swag recipients will be chosen based on the post's adherence to the aforementioned rules, image quality, caption quality, and overall creativity.

Get started on your family's bucket list today!
