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...

Some schools may let kids wear hats that are crazy or show their love of Dr. Seuss books for Read Across America Day. There are probably supplies already at home to easily make a hat from scratch.
