So with today being the official last day of school in our area I thought it would be fun to have "MaKe It MoNdAy" be for the kids. I know I spend much more time in the summer doing arts & crafts with lil chick to keep her busy and a busy kid means a happy mom! Atleast in my house anyway because then I am not hearing the dreaded "Mom I'm bored!". 

Another thing we do in the summer is to keep a weekly schedule. I know I know summer should be for fun and no schedules but this is just a little one. It helps to give kids something to look forward to and they know what will happen each day. 

Here's our daily schedule: 
(Well here is the pic of it lil chick wrote it on our kitchen chalkboard)

Also we do some fun crafts, spelling & math worksheets, and practice reading. I got her "summer school tote" ready last week so starting Monday we can start our little activities.

How do you help with the boredom of the summer months with the kids? 

Believe me I am always looking for tips on how I can make summer fun for her and for me!

  2. Hi Jennifer!

    Thanks for the comment. And I have been in both situations...times when I worked 60 hours a week and had not time for anything. It's a hard balance between the kids, house, hubby and all the other things that come with life. :) I hope you get to spend lots of time with the kids this summer!
