Summer is flying by much faster than I thought it would, and now that the 3 S's (Summer school, Scout camp, and Softball) are over, what are we going to do? I needed some cheap and easy ideas! Things that we can do at home, using things we already have at our fingertips. We have been reading most every day, since the kids can't swim until they've read for 30 minutes. And there are always babies around to play with, so we have been pretty busy. But, here are some fun ideas I've run across:
LDSLiving magazine has an A-Z list of fun ideas, my favorites are: American Idol, Outdoor Painting, and an UNO tournament.
Marie has some great ideas on her site, Make and Takes. And why hadn't I thought of putting flashcards on bookrings? Natalia's kinder teacher, Mrs. Lester, sent all of her flashcards home on them. There's a project for the kids to do!
If you want to get crafty with the kids and have something to hang in their room to show for it, try this canvas art with your kids project by Miki of Pursuit of Craftyness. Cute!
