The summer fun begins!

Friday was the last day of school for my kiddos! They have been talking all week about the “fun-filled” summer they plans that they have.  I asked what kind of stuff they planned to do and they said “water wars, building forts, jumping on the trampoline, going on nature hunts, wrestling, digging holes and planting things, you know the things we like to do” Boys will be boys! Sometimes I wonder if I had girls if they would give answers like draw pictures, pick flowers, play with dolls, or anything that is CALM!



See the little guy in the middle, don’t let that smile fool you.  He will smile like that while he’s burning the house down! It was the first day off of school and I took them to the store to pick out a prize and they picked water balloons.  They already started their water balloon war.  My fingers have blisters from tying so many balloons.

Here are some fun summer activities for the kiddos that we plan to do:

-Bike riding

-Trips to the splash park (when it opens)

-Yogi bear campground

-water balloon wars

-nerf gun wars (take your kids outside with their nerf guns, they love it)

-Go on a nature hunt

If you haven’t already signed up, make sure you go over here and read the list of summer freebies for kids, and if your kiddo received a good report card, check out all the freebies they can get!

I’m sure now that all 4 crazies are home, I’ll have lots of interesting stories for you! What kind of summer activities do you enjoy with your kiddos?

    • Great list! Another idea is to make up a play or homemade game. Keep them busy and hopefully out of trouble, especially the middle one! Good luck!
