Summer is just about here... only one more day of school for the kiddos and then it's over. Or it's beginning? Either way you look at it, the kids will be home all summer! My friend, Leslie, made a list of all the fun things they'd be doing this summer. I thought I'd do the same - even if only to get ideas from others so we don't end up playing video games all the days long!
Swim in the pool
Water polo camp
Go to Wild Water Adventures
Cub Scout Day Camp
$1 & $3 movie theaters
Teach the kids how to cook - cookie squares, mac n cheese, pancakes, quesadillas (any other babysitting foods???)
Camping at the Beach
Once a week library visits (to check out more FREE video games! and books, of course)
Camping in the mountains
Movies on the wall in the backyard
Smores with a backyard bonfire
Chuck E Cheese when reading charts are filled!
Go to the farm
Check out the city parks with water features
Family bike rides
Walks to the gas station
Of course, all of this fun will happen after the morning chore charts have been completed:
pick up dirty clothes
Jackson Job (read with Jackson, ABC Flashcards with Jackson, or white board writing letters with Jackson)
around the house job x2
That's the plan anyway... we'll see how long the mama's will power lasts :/
What are you doing for family fun this summer to keep the summer doldrums away?
