I know what you’re thinking…she’s already blogging about summer? It’s only May 1st. But YES. That’s how excited we are around here that it’s May 1st!
Only one more month left of school, warmer weather is here, longer days, lighter fare for dinner, the end of the school year craziness is upon us…we are PUMPED about summer.
Every year, I blog our Summer of Fun list and this year, I was going to do it in a few weeks, but on Saturday.. we stayed indoors in our pjs all day and thought it was a wonderful time to make our list.
This is going to be Madeley’s first summer as a Shull, so we are extra pumped to have her in on the fun 🙂 . Here we are making our list (we made it extra BIG this year!)…
Needless to say, we had FUN making our sign (we hung it upstairs). Every year, our list includes a mix of places to go, things to do, some free things, some things that cost money, and some things that are just silly. Here are some of our ideas for this summer
1. Make homemade ice cream
2. Go get snow cones
3. Karaoke night
4. Stay up late and play baseball
5. Slumber party
6. Play in the sprinklers
7. Go on a family vacation
8. Play basketball in the pool
9. Go to Hawaiian Falls
10. Blow bubbles
11. Have a dance party
12. Kayak in the lake
13. Do nothing one day (stay in our pjs)
14. Make a blueberry pie
15. Ride bikes
16. Have a bubble gum blowing contest
17. Family game night
We make these lists every year and it’s always helpful on those days when we don’t have anything planned. We can check our list and pick something fun to do (even if it’s as simple as having a bubble gum blowing contest…my kids think that’s a fun way to kill an hour!).
So, those are some of our ideas for summer fun. What are yours??? We are always looking for new ideas every summer. My kiddos are 2, 4, 7, and 8…so on the younger side, but please feel free to share ideas for older kids too because I know many of you need them for your big kids!
Happy May 1st!
