Not So Lazy Days
What are you doing this summer? With the schools' summer break coming in just under two weeks. many parents can name a vacation or the Shore, but have very few ideas about the remainder of the, oh, eleven weeks the kids are home.
In an effort to help you, I am challenging myself to find something to do at least five days a week, each week of summer. I plan to share with you what we do, complete with instructions (if needed) and costs. Activities will fall under these categories:
Sports & Games - Activities which get the kids moving or are competitive.
Arts & Crafts - Projects that involve the kids making something.
Field Trips - Adventures to places outside our home.
With my experience of being a former camp counselor, I have no fear about finding activities for our kids to do. However, I am open to ideas, so if you would like to contribute any, please do in the comments.
Oh, and I will have one last category - Shopping - for deals on items needed for future projects and, of course, Back-to-School shopping.
The last day of school for my kids is June 16, so I'll see you back here on June 17...

Many actors have seen their characters turned into Lego minifigures, but who has received the honor the most?
"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" can be called amazing for many reasons, including its effects on the box office, but some don't seem to understand why.
Between Peter Pan (and the cartoon spin-off, Jake and the Neverland Pirates) and The Pirates of the Caribbean movie series, children have plenty of inspiration for role-play or for Halloween costumes.
