Printable Summer Binder + Activity Sheets

Yes, another binder. This one is meant to use with your kids for summer.  A summer binder, if you will. And be forewarned- I have a whole lot of information coming at you.   Take from it what you want and use it in your home however you’d like!

Printable Summer Binder- create a binder full of fun for your kids this summer! Beat the boredom blues! Printables for each section included.
I’ve tried several things over each summer to keep my kids on track and not just sitting in front of the tv for 2 months. Some things have worked and others haven’t.  You can see what I did a few years ago with “summer home school” (don’t laugh… it’s from 4 years ago!) This binder is meant to be divided up into sections: reading, activities, cooking, quiet time, random acts of kindness, worksheets.  I would suggest putting a calendar in it as well. I made the sheets as checklists to guide you but so that you could have your kids fill in with whatever they’d like to do. Where do you get supplies for the binder?  Here’s what I use for mine: (Affiliate links are used below)

ACTIVITIES FOR THE SUMMER

Reading Programs:
There are SO many programs to encourage reading.  Here are just a few:

Check out your local library because most have summer programs.  They also usually include reading time or some kind of activities, often movies throughout the summer. If you want a reading chart, I have a printable one to download: reading_chartSummer Movie Express:
Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the summer Regal Movie Theaters has $1 movies. We have done this every summer for years.  My oldest isn’t great about going to movie theaters but loves going to these because they are shows he’s already seen at home.  Notes: Go early as the theaters can get crowded.  At our local theater summer camps and daycares attend every week so seats are filled early.  

Learning worksheets:
I have posted about this in the past with some of my other summer posts.  I have done a different theme every week and printed out worksheets based around that theme. Here are some of my favorite worksheet sites: (and Pinterest is a great resource for this as well- easy to search for specific worksheets)

Hi- I'm Mique (as in Mickey). I started 30days as an idea file a few years ago. After three years and hundreds of ideas, I now realize that I'll never check them all off my list. When I'm not creating, I love spending time with family and friends and long drives, especially if they end at the beach.
