Printable Summer Activity Plan!

Last May (2007) I taught a little class on summer-time fun with your family. I created a word.doc that had a bunch of info about local places (Boise, ID area) to take your family and some events that take place during the summer here. (Those of you from here, just email me and I'll send it to you!) There is so much we can do and see and teach our children during the summer! Put your creative mind to the test! There are also lots of great ideas on the FamilyFun website!At the beginning of the summer, I sit down with the kids and we make a list of everything we think would be fun to go do together. We put the list up on the wall (or fridge), so when we are having trouble thinking of something fun to do we have ideas. I go to our local community websites and find out when fun community events are scheduled. I take a red pen and write them on the calendar so I can look up there and know exactly when and where. We don't attend everything, and maybe only a few things. But it's nice to have them in clear view just in case! This year I made a chart to keep our list on, that we can record notes on and remember for next year what we thought of each activity. This will also be a nice thing to have in our family scrapbook! I am posting this chart for you to print off. (I hope it works. If not, let me know and I'll email it to you.) Pin It

  1. Jenn S. told me about your blog and I have been having fun reading about your family. Since I also live in Boise I would love to know all about all the fun things to do here - just in case we are missing out on something. Thanks for all you do!

  2. I something similar with my daughter except I have two lists: one for rainy day activities and one for non-rainy-day activities. That way, I am not "stuck" for things to do with her on days when the weather isn't great.
