Keeping kids busy during the summer months can be quite a task and unless you have an unlimited budget for camps and activities, you might have to get creative to avoid the "B" word (BORED!).
Here's how we kept busy last summer:
Make It Monday
-craft projects: get on Pinterest and finds some cool ideas, then hit the craft store and make something cool
-dig through the recycle bin and build something: a city for cars, a robot, and house for stuffed animals
Take a Dip Tuesday
-hit the local pool, turn on the sprinkler, or have a water balloon fight
Work Day Wednesday
-what projects need to get done around the house: yard work, sorting toys, cleaning out closets; give kids simple tasks to help big projects get done
-exercise your brain with board games, read aloud books, science experiements
Fun Day Friday
-take day trips to local museums, parks, cultural markets, go to the movies, or work on a project from earlier in the week
Geocaching (go treasure hunting wherever you are)
DIY (try new things, make cool projects, and earn badges for completing challenges)

Hope you have a fun and exciting summer!
