I’m trying not to get totally crazy with summer planning. But, today was an absolutely GORGEOUS day here, just simply perfect weather…and several times I had to remind my son that it was a screen-free day and to
get him off the Minecraft! put down the fidget spinner and go outside! (this is an older post that I’m updating, so he’s not into Minecraft anymore) So frustrating, what is it about some of these screen things? He always has fun once he gets outside, sometimes he just needs a nudge. So without over-scheduling him with camps and other organized activities…plus I am NOT “that mom” who creates craft projects at home…I created this sheet for us to follow. Every year I say that I want to have the BEST SUMMER EVER, and this year we are poised to do it because we are having family stay with us for an extended period of time.
Day trips don’t have to be super far or super expensive. You may just want to check out a local farm and pick your own. Go to a nearby creek and wade in the water, skim rocks. Most importantly, I want my kids outside!
So here you go, a super low key printable so that you can remind yourself and your kids to get outside and have some fun.
