Summer is right around the corner (yikes!) and I’m starting to plan. We will have a lot of baseball, will start football and some voice lessons mixed in.. but I hope to get some down time in there too. Having a plan always makes me feel better. In case you are the same, I wanted to share some ideas to get you going for the next few months. And pssst… read to the bottom because there is a fun giveaway too!
Here are some easy and fun ways to plan out your summer-
Summer Punch Cards:
I put these punch cards together last year for a few reasons. So that we could have some sort of system to keep track of what we were doing, so that my kids would have an incentive to not just sit around all summer and to have fun! We need to be better about the follow through… ;)
Summer Binder & Worksheets:
This is another option for keeping organized. If you like binders, you (and your kids) will love this one. It includes all kinds of activities and ideas to have a fun and productive few months off of school!
Summer Movie Express:
For the last several summers I have taken my kids to the movies on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. These movies are older movies but kid friendly and so much fun. My oldest prefers movies he’s seen a lot so it works out well for us. They cost $1 and start at 10am. Our local theaters have changed the way they do it. It used to be that you had to show up well in advance but now they have opened up more theaters and movies so it isn’t quite as busy. We’ll see how it goest this summer!
