Our school is out for the Summer! While it’s not quite the Dog Days of Summer yet we want to be prepared and not bored this summer. So after surfing the web and reading my favorite blogs I found many great ideas. Check out all that I found…
This first website has tons of inexpensive ideas. It is also categorized for your convenience. Check out squidoo and their great ideas.
Next hop on over to Oopsey Daisy to keep your preschoolers occupied. Every Friday she features a summer camp for the lil ones. Great activities that are based on a children’s book. The first book featured is Where the Wild Things Are. Oopsey Daisy has sooo many cute ideas for monsterously fun activities.
My girls love drawing and creating….with pens, crayons, markers, paint and CHALK. So we will be trying this homemade recipe from Mad Maggie for sidewalk chalk. Sure you can buy chalk for just as cheap but I think the girls will get a kick out of actually making the chalk they will be drawing with.
Years ago when my husband and I first got married he went on a grilling kick. He grilled every dinner we had that summer (great for me!) He tried grilling all types of food. Then he wanted to grill pizza….Pizza? You can’t grill pizza! Well, I had to eat my words! You can grill pizza and it’s fantastic! Check out this recipe for a great grilled pizza!
Lastly, this idea comes from Tatertots and Jello blog. Last summer her and her daughters participated in a Flip Flop Exchange. Each girl received a pen pal. The pen pals were located throughout the United States. Each girl was to send her pen pal a pair of flip flops and goodies to go with. I’d love to do this! I also thought if you couldn’t do pen pals that just a good old fashioned Cookie, I mean, flip flop exchange amongst friends would be a blast!
If you have any fun, cost effective ideas for the summer please share.
Until next time…..
