Look at Cristin’s summer fun idea! She writes little outings/things to do on small pieces of paper, tucks them in tiny envelopes, and puts them on a photo tree. Her kiddos love finding out what fun things they’ll be doing that day. Brilliant!

I hope these ideas have inspired you to make the most of your time with your children this summer.

    I tack a huge piece of butcher paper to the fence in the backyard, then give my kids plates with a ton of paint and foam brushes, spray bottles with watered down paint and they also can use their hands to go nuts. They have a great time getting paint all over each other and even a little on the paper.

    Thanks for the tips. I’d like to add one! Write and illustrate a children’s picture book. Your kids can do their own books or you can do one together. Best done lying in the sun on a blanket with paper and pens and paints scattered around you!

      Great idea! My boys love to “write” their own stories, I usually end up writing on the back what they told me they “wrote” so we can read them in the future. Would you be interested in writing a post for us on this topic? If so contact me at sylvia{at}blissfullydomestic{dot}com!!
