Around here, Summer Vacation has begun for our kids. This year Rebecca and Maggie have decided not to send their boys to summer camp, which means we have to rely on creativity to make it a fun summer for kids and moms alike! We've been looking through some of our old posts to refresh our memories and give us some ideas to keep everyone busy and happy this summer (for those times when even the wading pool and goofy goggles aren't entertaining them). And we thought we'd share some of those ideas with you!
The best part about summer vacation is getting the kids outside. Why not make some Homemade Bubble Solution? And if it's really hot out, why not let the kids throw some Sponge Balls at each other? They are a less messy and fun alternative to water balloons! Or if the kids are feeling creative, you can always mix up a batch of Sidewalk Chalk Paint!
Having a rainy summer day? Why not try some of our favorite indoor kids crafts! Our very first post was on making Homemade Playdough (or if you're feeling beachy, try some Sand Playdough)! Sooo easy and will certainly keep the kids busy for a while! Some other fun, indoor activities are to make your own stickers or Puffy Paint - or you can always make some Marbled Paper. But if your kids are anything like ours get ready for a big fun mess!
We hope that these projects gave you some ideas and will help keep you all busy, entertained, and maybe even a little bit messy this summer! Enjoy!
