Many Many of you have children have kids out of school. We have to go until June 27th. I am not bitter. Wait, I am. Anyways, I thought I would give some links to easy summer fun ideas especially if you are going to have kids home all summer long.
I have done a variety of things with my kids during the summer from making bucket lists, exploring a different park each week, and Adventure Crew experiences with my best friend and family. I think it is important to have a loose plan or an unplan as I call it. I want to give my kids downtime but I think a little structure helps. We always have a meeting to determine the summer rules with our kids and usually they are agreed on together. I found this extremely helpful because I am able to say you came up with this rule not me. I now have teenagers so it is a whole new ball game in some ways.
It seems like every blogger has a take on this. So here is a linky to end all linky's.
