It’s the middle of summer and the kids are bored. You’re out of ideas, tired of hearing the complaints, and need to get some things done (aka, you’re not an entertainer). And you know what? It’s totally ok for them to be bored! I know you love to do lots with your kids, but it’s also SO good for them to be creative and come up with things to do on their own. It teaches them independence and allows them to develop creatively. But hey, why not provide them with a bit of summer-fun-idea-boosting? Well, Mama, we’ve totally got your back with the best little weekly summer theme schedule!

Summer Fun Daily Schedule Ideas

Make It Monday

Your weekly summer fun schedule for kids wouldn’t be complete without including some fun summer craft projects.  It takes a lot of time and can open the window for developing a new hobby or skill.  These can be done alone or with a parent or friend.

make play dough, color, make your own chalk, etc.!

The sky is the limit!  How would you like to become a foodie? Do you want to stay home, go out, or cook over a campfire?

Who doesn’t love allll the different ways of cooling off on a hot summer day?

Make crystals, and invisible ink, the possibilities are endless!

Don’t forget to teach selflessness.  We all could do with a happiness boost, and service is definitely a great way to feel great!
