I don't know about you, but after being out of school for a month, I am tired of hearing my son say "I'm bored." or "There's nothing to do."
After perusing Pinterest and many of the blogs on my reading list, I decided it was time to make a list.
This list consists of 100 Summer Fun things.
Activities range from blowing bubbles and using sidewalk chalk to trying a new food and baking cookies to going to a water park and taking a family vacation.
How will we keep track you ask?
Well, I went to Walmart and got a nice big piece of posterboard with "phantom" lines (so I would actually write everything straight). Then I spent nearly an ENTIRE day trying to think of 100 things that we can do in our days at home before I have to leave for work at 2:15 in the afternoon.
Great idea, right?
I certainly hope so!
We have done a few things on the list, but I still need to have it laminated and get us a dry erase marker. Since I put so much time into hand printing, we are SO going to use it for more than one summer!
Do you know how incredibly difficult it is to come up with fun stuff that an 11-year old boy AND a 5-year old girl would both want to do?
Holy bumper stickers, it was tough. I'm sure there are a few things my son will growl about, but all-in-all, it will hopefully be fun and making progress through the list will be a neat accomplishment.
Not too sure why this loaded on it's side! It was saved with the right side up.
