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...
