100 items for Summer 2012. This list is ambitious, I know. I was perfectly fine stopping at 70 but Warren insisted we keep going. Some of the ideas are a bit of a stretch, but I’m not going to argue with “sleep in” and “do nothing” if that makes them happy. Many of them we got straight off my “Ideas for Kids” Pinterest board I’ve been collecting for months.
We’ve taped this list to the kitchen pantry door. So far, we’ve already checked off two items. I imagine we’ll get through about half but at least we’ll have plenty of options.
I decided to follow a sort of schedule for the week, so that we can maximize some of these ideas. It’s not hard and fast, but it will make sure that we don’t get stuck in a rut. You can find the printable here, but the gist is this:
Monday – make something
Tuesday – time to read
Wednesday – what’s cooking
Thursday – be thoughtful (service projects)
Friday – somewhere fun
I still want them to have plenty of time to play and just be kids enjoying the freedoms of summer, but this way we can take advantage of the all that the season has to offer.
What are your plans for summer?
UPDATE: I’ve added a printable blank version of our Summer Fun List 2012 that you can download here, in case you needed something to get you started. Enjoy!
