Summer is right around the corner. And with that means kids will be home and need things to do. This takes a little planning, so a few weeks before I always start writing down a list of fun activities that the kids can either do on their own or together as a family. (Mine are still young so most of them we do together.)
It is amazing at how fast a summer flies by and having ideas of things
to do can help make it more memorable and less "boring"
(as my five year old has now learned to say. :)
Here you can see a "Summer Days" list that I made and put into a frame to hang for everyone to see. I wrote in the activities and included some little boxes. Once it was put behind the glass, I simply used a dry erase marker to mark them off.
You can see this one was from a couple of years ago. I usually change the way I display it a bit each year. Did we complete every activity? No. But we did do a lot. And we had a lot of fun doing them.

If you'd care to make your own, I am including a blank copy for you to download. (It actually prints on to two sheets of paper or cardstock. You may have to cut it a bit to fit them together. ) That way you can make your own list that works for your kids and family.
As I mentioned earlier, I like to change mine up each year.
So stay tuned for this year's "Summer Bucket List"
(coming later this week)!
