Last year, Cocoa from Chocolate On My Cranium shared a really fun way her family keeps the "I'm bored" monster at bay during the summer months. She reposted it again this week with a fantastic list of ideas and tutorials to keep your kids busy and a cute craft idea to keep it all organized. Because we are in the midst of a big move, I won't have the resources to do too much, but for FHE last night we came up with an idea that will work for our family...our Summer Fun Jar.
First, we came up with a list of activities that the kids love to do...some cost money, some don't. Then today they helped me type them up and place them in a big biscuit jar. And because we believe that kids should have responsibilities (as well as a reminder to be kind), the big kids each have a list of goals. If they meet their goals for the day and are kind to each other, after dinner we will pick an activity to do the next day. I really think this will work for or family, even when we're spending a few weeks in a hotel before and after the move.
Do you have any ideas on how to organize Summer fun at your house??
