Fun Themed Summer Schedule

Are you ready for summer?  I know I am.  It was a wonderful school year but we are all ready for a nice long break!  Of course, there will be plenty of learning opportunities and adventures but it will be fun!

I want to share a cute and fun themed summer schedule with you.  This is perfect for moms and kids who are home all summer.  Thanks goes to my friend Sarah for sharing this list on another site.

  • Make-it Monday (building projects with K’nex and Lego's or the wood we have in the backyard for the kids to use in building forts, craft projects, art projects, a visit to the library to learn about artists and inventors and engineering – art and building and invention are big things in our family)
  • Take a trip Tuesday (the park, a museum, a bike ride, a field trip to a historic place, a factory tour, a picnic, a friend’s house…We often invited other kids or other families along)
  • Wet Wednesday (swim/go to a splash pad/play in the sprinklers, often with friends and neighbors)
  • Thinking Thursday (research something from our “wondering list” – a list of things we’re wondering about. Last summer we had a great time finding out how to make yogurt, how cars are made, where baby carrots come from and how monster trucks work thanks to YouTube, Wikipedia and library trips)
  • Friend Friday (everyone can have a friend over – nice to do it all at once and protect our family time during most of the rest of the week. Plus we always have Family Movie Night on Fridays)

  • This list is from Power of Moms
