I saw this super cool summer schedule while blog browsing one day and thought it was such a fun idea. So of course I instantly pinned it for future reference! ;) Even though I love the catchy names of each day...I wanted a bit more flexibility to my weeks.
So I've decided to incorporate these things throughout each week but the order will just vary. Plus with Little Bit in a cast we can't quite do water days yet. This was our first week putting our summer schedule into motion and it was fabulous!
Monday...took a trip to the local museum for a butterfly storytime and played in the children's area
Tuesday...doctor appt, ran errands & met friends for lunch
Wednesday...stayed home, cleaning & organizing day
Thursday...craft day & picnic/play at the park
Friday...library reading program, grocery shopping & garage sales!
Each week will also include...reading time, writing practice, exercise, cleaning, errands, play dates & plenty of snuggling!
I absolutely loved how our first craft project of the summer turned out. As soon as it was dry I framed that bad boy and hung it in the craft room! So of course I had to show you all! ;)
The inspiration for this project came from Pinterest....where else...it is just such a great resource! This one uses paper, a plastic cup, and paint.
You start out by stamping circles with the cup. They used black paint to do this but I tried a black ink pad instead to lessen drying time and I really like the more subtle lines.
I especially love the little smiley face in the upper left corner! :-)
So our summer fun is off to a great start! What fun things do and your kiddos have lined up for this summer?
