This Thursday is the start of summer vacation for my kids; this school year seemed to really fly. The past few weeks I’ve been working on my Summer Fun Activity planner. Do you want to see what we’re going to do this summer? Go ahead and take a peek. You can download a blank copy of my Summer Fun Activity planner and plan what you want to do with your kids this summer too. It’s a fillable form that you can type your activities into and then print when you’re finished. It doesn’t allow for saving so you’ll want to make sure you print it out when you’re finished. Since I work from home I have to make sure that I have time to work every day so in addition to family outings I have created a daily activity planner for our days as well. Some of the things that I included in our days are homework time, TV time, and outside time (or a rainy day plan). I also planned for lunch and snack choices for each day. And most importantly I’ve got a new kitchen timer with a magnet that I can stick to the fridge; I’ve promised the kids every hour I’m for them for 10 minutes. This doesn’t seem like a lot of time but I’m home all day with the kids rather than being at a 9 to 5 job and them in daycare. I’ve also planned a 1/2 day off once a week.
So I think we’re ready for summer vacation to get started. The kids only have 1/2 day on Thursday so I’m going work till it’s time to pick them up and then spend the rest of the day with a bike ride to the park and spending some time talking about our plans, playing/relaxing together and an early picnic supper.
Have you spent some time planning your summer time vacation yet? I’d love to hear what you will be doing for the summer and how you are working the kids into your normal day.
