Summer Fun isn’t over yet!

We are heading into what refer to as the “Summer Doldrums.”  

The 4th of July festivities are long gone and the kids are starting to get a little bit bored with being home.  The daytime temperatures have been hovering around the 100’s so it’s too hot to spend a significant amount of time outside (I don’t even like to go to the pool until after 6 pm – my missy is just so fair and it’s easier to go in the evening and not have to worry about the sun.)  

We are counting down the days until my son’s scout trip to Colorado and a camping trip to the beach and visit with our cousins – which is all happening in August!

I kept the kids mostly home with me this summer and one of my goals this summer was to do a little something entertaining, fun, and possibly even educational with them every day.  

Simple activities like going to the park, the library, scavenger hunts, various crafts, and misc projects in the kitchen.  

I’ve done an ok job with this, but with only 30 days left of summer, the kids and I got together to make a list of activities and put them on the printable countdown sheet.

Our proposed 30 Days of Summer Fun Activities are:

  1. Play frisbee
  2. Draw with sidewalk chalk
  3. Jump rope
  4. Play dress up
  5. Make an obstacle course
